NXT Dani is not going to ascend to the main roster; she is instead heading to the WWE corporate office.

Earlier this week, outlets like PWMania.com questioned whether WWE had released Dani (real name: Alisha Ceraso) or if she'd quit the company. Turns out, she traded in the bumps and bruises of the wrestling ring for a desk job.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestlingInc.com) reports that Dani "quit NXT and has taken a corporate office job at WWE headquarters in Stamford, CT."

As a fitness model, she certainly had the sex appeal and look that WWE is famous for desiring in Divas. Either she didn't believe she had the in-ring ability to move up in the business or didn't have the desire.

It takes a touch of insanity to want to put your body through the grueling schedule and physical grind that is being a WWE performer.

Divas certainly take less bumps than their male counterparts, but it's still rougher on one's body than answering emails. So you can't blame Dani for seeing the potential in a stable, normal job.

Her WWE career came and went before many fans knew who she was.

She only recently debuted in an NXT backstage segment. She presented Sasha Banks with a letter. Though she wasn't acknowledged by name, the appearance was at least enough to get the attention of Diva Dirt.

The website wrote a short message to Dani, "You did well and you looked hot!"

Ceraso had worked in the WWE's offices before trying her hand as an in-ring performer.

She won't be taking on Paige and Summer Rae, trying to improve in the ring and learning the difficult sports/theater combo that is WWE. She won't be challenging Kaitlyn for the Divas title or have to struggle for air time like so many of the women on the roster.

She'll instead be at a desk, living a less glamorous, but less painful life.
