Ruby Riott, a former WWE superstar who was released by the company earlier in June this year, is likely heading to AEW.
All Elite Wrestling is continuously working to stack its women’s roster and it seems like another top name in the wrestling industry will likely join the company in the next few weeks. Ruby Soho, f.k.a, Ruby Riott is on her way to debut in the company, as per Fightful Select.
Ruby Soho was one of the multiple WWE releases on June 2, 2021. So, her 90 days non-compete clause will likely end by the end of August. The current speculations are that Ruby Soho will show up at AEW All Out which will take place on September 5.
Ruby once released a long statement right after her release from WWE. She took to her Instagram handle to share her thoughts in which she assured the fans that her journey is far from being over. Ever since then she has kept a low profile and didn’t participate in any interviews.
Yesterday, on August 3, Ruby Soho took to her social media again to reveal her new look. It seems like she will debut in AEW with her brand new hair. However, nothing has been learned about the creative plans for Ruby Soho.
Ruby Riott made her WWE debut in 2016 and spent her initial two years in NXT. In 2017, she debuted on RAW as the leader of the Riott squad along with Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan. However, the faction broke up after WrestleMania 35. After Riott returned to SmackDown in 2020, she joined Liv Morgan to reform the Riott squad.
Ruby Riott’s last run in WWE wasn’t very impressive and she was continuously booked poorly. So, she will certainly want to forget those poor bookings and try to show her true potential in All Elite Wrestling.
