WWE NXT's Candice LeRae donned new gear inspired by Disney's Maleficent for NXT TakeOver: War Games! LeRae has made a major name for herself among comic book and pop culture fans thanks to how she and husband Johnny Gargano have shown their love for other major franchises through their gear.

Ever since Candice LeRae fully dove into her new heel persona, fans have seen how she has taken her new "Poison Pixie" identity to a new level. But that doesn't mean she has lacked in her tributes to pop culture franchises, and it's almost as if she has been able to do much more with her new looks!
