She’s in. There are a lot of talented wrestlers in the world today and several of them are able to be seen on national television on a regular basis. It can mean a lot for someone to get their chance on a bigger stage and occasionally that is exactly what you get to see. It was the case again this week, as a former WWE star made their official AEW debut with a target already in sight.

This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite was held in Canada, with TBS Champion Jade Cargill issuing an open challenge to any Canadian. Cargill retained her title over Nicole Matthews in less than a minute, but after the match Taya Valkyrie debuted and attacked Cargill’s associate Leila Grey. Valkyrie is a former NXT star, where she wrestled under the name Frankie Monet, as well as a former Knockouts Champion. AEW President Tony Khan has since announced that Valkyrie is All Elite, suggesting she has signed with the company.

Valkyrie can be a star. Check out her debut and time elsewhere:
Opinion: This is an interesting addition for AEW, as Valkyrie is one of the few names from outside of WWE and AEW who matches up with Cargill physically. She’s also a fresh matchup and that could be exactly what Cargill needs. Cargill has held the title for a very long time now and has not been given a major threat in a good while. Maybe this is what she needs, as something has to change for her.
What do you think of the debut? How will their likely match go? Let us know in the comments below.
