Ruby Soho(formerly Ruby Riott in WWE) is seemingly AEW bound. AEW President Khan is eyeing to bag signing of another former WWE star with the deal of Riott, who could make her debut at AEW’s upcoming pay-per-view, All Out this Sunday.
Ruby Soho could be the big surprise entrant in the AEW All Out Women’s Casino Battle Royale
AEW President Tony Khan had recently teased a big surprise entrant in the AEW All Out Women’s Casino Battle Royale and all signs indicate to Ruby Soho, who herself has been teasing the fans about her upcoming plans. As per the reports of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the former Ruby Riott, is set to make her AEW debut at All Out. She is expected to be the unannounced 21st entrant (Joker) in the Battle Royale.
WWE had handed a release to Ruby Soho on June 2 this year. Due to the 90-day non-compete clause in her contract, Soho has been away from the squared circle and could not ink a deal with any wrestling company. The clause expired on August 31, and she is now free to perform for any wrestling promotion. She could be making a huge debut coming out as the Joker in the Casino Battle Royale.
In the past, several top wrestlers made their AEW debuts as surprise entrants in such matches. Brian Cage was the last person to enter the AEW Casino Ladder Match to earn a shot at the AEW World Championship.
Matt Sydal was the joker in the Casino Battle Royale at All Out last year. Ethan Page made his AEW debut at Revolution in the Face of the Revolution ladder match. Most recently, Lio Rush made his first and only AEW appearance in the Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing. So, bringing in Ruby Soho as a surprise entrant could be the best way to introduce her to the programming on AEW.
The card is already stacked up with several high-profile matches. The show will see the highly-anticipated in-ring debut of CM Punk as he would take on the former AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin, while Paul Wight(The Big Show in WWE) would also be stepping foot in the ring for a match for the first time in AEW squaring off against QT Marshall. Also, as per the reports, Daniel Bryan could be making his debut on the show as well. All eyes will be on the jam-packed All Out show which goes down this Sunday, September 5.
