WWE NXT Women’s Champion Lyra Valkyria recently caused quite a stir in the world of professional wrestling with a tweet on January 16th, 2024. She reached out to her fans on social media, asking for assistance in tracking down a "stolen" set of her distinctive ring gear.

Valkyria urged her followers to avoid purchasing the gear if spotted online and instead to report any such listings directly to her. The tweet quickly garnered attention, sparking discussions and speculation among fans and followers.

However, in a surprising twist during an NXT episode, it became clear that Valkyria's plea was actually a scripted part of the ongoing storyline. In an unexpected reveal, Valkyria's protégé, Tatum Paxley, appeared for their tag team match against Elektra Lopez and Lola Vice, sporting gear that matched the champion’s.

This development clarified that the previously reported missing gear was a deliberate element of the NXT narrative.
