Jamara Garrett (born December 9, 1994) is an American professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where she performs under the ring name Jakara Jackson on the NXT brand and is a member of The Meta-Four stable.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

In August 2021, Garrett participated in a WWE tryout in Las Vegas, Nevada, and earned a contract with the company.[2]

Garrett was soon assigned the name Jakara Jackson and on August 5, 2022, she made her in-ring debut on an NXT house show, teaming with Lash Legend in a losing effort to Katana Chance and Kayden Carter. Jackson made her televised debut on the October 28 episode of NXT Level Up, losing to Thea Hail.[3] Heading into 2023, Jackson would team with Lash Legend on house shows and Level Up, mostly in losing efforts.[4][5][6][7][8]

At NXT Battleground, Jackson and Legend would align themselves with Noam Dar and Oro Mensah, helping Dar retain his NXT Heritage Cup over Dragon Lee and forming the group known as The Meta-Four. The Meta-Four would feud with Dragon Lee who would be aided by Nathan Frazer, Valentina Feroz and Yulisa León and at NXT: Gold Rush, Jackson and Legend would defeat Feroz and Leon in Jackson's NXT TV debut. At NXT The Great American Bash, Meta Four would be defeated by Lee, Frazer, Feroz and Leon on the Kickoff show to end the feud.[9][10][11]

In October, Jackson was due to compete in the NXT Women's Breakout Tournament in the first round against Arianna Grace but was pulled due to suffering a broken wrist and replaced by Brinley Reece. Despite the injury, she would still continue to accompany the Meta-Four during their matches and segments. Jackson made her return from injury on the January 16, 2024 episode of NXT in a battle royal to determine the #1 Contender for the NXT Women's Championship, which was won by Roxanne Perez. On the February 27 episode of NXT, Jackson was defeated by Perez in her first singles match.[12][13][14][15][16] On March 26, it was announced that The Meta-Four will be the host of NXT Stand & Deliver.[17]
