She’s worth it. AEW has done a lot of good things in its still relatively short existence and that has made for some interesting moments. In addition to the company developing its main division, its women’s division has come a very long way as well. The company always needs some fresh talent to restock the shelves though and now they might have another name coming in.

According to Fightful Select, Ruby Soho, formerly known as Ruby Riott in WWE, is expected to be signed to AEW as soon as her no compete clause expires. Her clause expires just before All Out on September 5, meaning she could appear at the show. Soho has not appeared for any kind of event since her release on June 2. There is no word on what she would be doing in AEW.

Soho has the talent. Check out her time in WWE:

Ruby Riott brutally attacks Liv Morgan: Raw, Feb. 3, 2020

Ruby Riott vs. Bayley: SmackDown, Feb. 5, 2021

FULL MATCH - Charlotte Flair vs. Ruby Riott - SmackDown Women's Title Match: WWE Fastlane 2018

Opinion: This is the kind of signing that makes a lot of sense for AEW as Soho is a very talented wrestler who never got a chance to prove herself in WWE. She had a few moments here and there, but how often did she get to be on her own near a title? I don’t get the lack of a chance for her, but maybe she can get it in a place that suits her so much better. I would certainly hope so at least.

What do you think of Soho? How will she do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
