On January 3, 2017, Aliyah made her first main roster appearance as she appeared on WWE SmackDown Live and featured in a match that she lost to Carmella. Throughout 2018, Aliyah continued losing to various opponents. In September, Aliyah was officially working as a heel and had started a short alliance with fellow wrestler Lacey Evans. The duo was handed a tag team match in which they were victorious, marking Al-Areebi’s (Aliyah’s) first victory in over a year.


Before joining the WWE and becoming “Aliyah”, Nhooph Al-Areebi was an acclaimed amateur wrestler. She won the GXW Women’s Championship and the Great Canadian Wrestling Women’s Championship. After making her debut for the Pure Wrestling Association in 2014, she won the PWA Woman’s Championship and got everyone’s attention. Her fame in the Amateur wrestling scene is what drew WWE’s attention towards this undiscovered gem.

She hasn’t had much success as a professional wrestler yet and seems to have setbacks every other appearance that is halting her rise as a fan favorite. However, there is still time for the 26-year-old Aliyah as she can still turn her career around and as every WWE fan knows, it only takes one match to do so.

She comes from a strict family so it must be difficult for her to manage her personal and public life together. But given the fact she defied her parents and went on to become a wrestler, we can say for sure that Nhooph Al-Areebi is a woman with a bold personality and ambitions to soar high.
