For the past few weeks, NXT’s been running an angle where Jacy Jayne has been “mentoring” Thea Hail on topics not covered in her Chase U curriculum.
Hail signed with WWE just before graduating high school, and was quickly added to Andre Chase’s college/stable. Her current storyline involves the former Toxic Attraction-er helping Thea shed her schoolgirl look (and possibly swaying her to the dark side in the process, but there aren’t really signs of that yet). Last week Jayne took Hail out for a makeover, and this week they showed the results to her professor, The U’s MVP Duke Hudson, and the entire NXT Universe.
Hail also had new entrance music for her match with Dani Palmer — which she won by submission with a Kimura, so early returns on “grown ass woman” Thea seem promising.
