Taynara Conti Walks Out on Company After Disagreement

Taynara Conti Walks Out on Company After Disagreement
Taynara Conti reportedly walked out on WWE in January.

The Brazilian Superstar featured regularly on NXT programming in late 2019 but she has not made any appearances in 2020, with her last televised match coming on the December 18, 2019 episode in a defeat against Candice LeRae.

While the exact reason for her apparent walkout is unknown, Fightful Select reports that Conti was involved in a disagreement which, according to some people at the Performance Center, may be over finances.
“We're told in the middle of January, Conti had a disagreement with WWE, and "walked out." Most at the WWE Performance Center we've spoken to believe it's financially motivated, but we've not confirmed that. It was noted that her locker was cleared out, however.”
Sapp added that Conti's husband, Jorge Conti, told MMA writer Matheus Costa that she is still contracted to WWE.
"All we can say is that Taynara still under contract with WWE."
Taynara Conti competed in the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament in 2017, losing in the first round to Lacey Evans, while her most memorable moment in her debut year in WWE came when she briefly aligned with The Undisputed Era.

In 2018, Conti became the first female Brazilian Superstar to compete at WrestleMania when she represented NXT in the Women’s Battle Royal on the WrestleMania 34 kickoff show.

The 24-year-old also participated in the second Mae Young Classic tournament in 2018, defeating Jessie Elaban in the first round before losing to Lacey Lane in the second round.
