FORMER WWE star Tay Conti has proven why she’s considered the hottest free agent in professional wrestling.
The 24-year-old – holds a black belt in judo and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu – sent her fans wild on Instagram after a series of stunning beach snaps weeks after her NXT release.
The Brazilian made waves on social media after posing a snap of her posing in a t-shirt with the word ‘released’ scrawled across it.
Since then, Conti – real name Taynara Melo de Carvalho – has been keeping fans updated with a stream of bikini pictures under the hashtag ‘LatinasDoItBetter.’
One fan replied: “Its not right that you’re gone gonna miss seeing you wrestle.”
Another said: “Soooo beautiful.”
SmackDown announcer Kayla Braxton simply added: “Geez Tay!”
I tried to change my hair, to change my gimmick, to change my gear and they were like ‘no Tay, don’t change, just keep going, the opportunity is coming’Tay Conti on her NXT frustrations
Conti was among the many wrestlers quietly released by WWE recently due to budget cuts following financial restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Mae Young classic competitor admitted her frustrations that she never really had the chance to prove herself in NXT.
In an interview with Ring The Belle, she said: “I need to feel like I’m useful. The last couple of months, I was not feeling that anymore.
“I was trying to have conversations asking for opportunities. And don’t get me wrong. I never asked for a TakeOver match. I never asked for a title shot.
