Ruby Soho (fka Ruby Riott) finally made her return to pro wrestling at AEW All Out after being released by WWE.
Tonight’s episode of AEW All Out featured a women’s Casino Battle Royal which had one spot left. In the end, that spot was taken by Ruby Soho and she came out as a joker.
Ruby Soho made it to the final 3 along with Nyla Rose and Thunder Rosa. Soho eventually kicked Rosa out of the ring to win the Battle Royal. Now, Ruby Soho is the new number #1 contender for the AEW Women’s Championship and will challenge Britt Baker who successfully defended her earlier at the PPV against Kris Statlander.
Ruby Soho created a solid hype around her return with the help of a video series titled The Runaway. These videos had references about her time in WWE and they also teased that her past is behind her now and she is entering a new era.
WWE released Ruby Riott/Soho back on April 15, 2021. During her time with the promotion, Ruby worked with WWE NXT, Raw, and SmackDown for around 4 years. She even had a stable of her own named The Riott Squad.
Ruby Soho’s 90 days non-compete clause ended in the month of August after which she was ready to sign with any other promotion and make her return to pro-wrestling.
