WWE NXT superstar Tegan Nox has opened up about the great reception she has been receiving from people since coming out as a lesbian.
Last week, Tegan Nox came out as a lesbian when she posted a photo of herself with her girlfriend on Instagram.
During an interview with Newsweek, Nox talked about how the last few days have been for her since she came out.
“My life has always been a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ situation, but I felt like it was the right time, especially when you’ve found the right one you’re in love with. It was the right time to do that.” she said. “The reaction has been great. There are a few people who obviously don’t agree with that, but 99 percent of the reactions have been positive. I’ve got texts coming through from so many colleagues and friends. It was nice. It’s great to see that there are so many nice people in the world.”
The 25-year-old revealed that Smackdown superstar Sonya Deville has been a big help to her during the whole process.
“I actually talked to Sonya before I even did this. She was a big, big help. She gave me her phone number and told me to text her if I needed anything. So we keep in contact quite a lot about it. She’s a massive help with the fans, because my family knew but my fans didn’t. So she helped me bring it out to the public.“ she said.
Nox has been regularly featured on WWE NXT TV as of late. She most recently headlined the July 15, 2020 edition of NXT when she failed to capture the women’s title from Io Shirai.
