It’s official: Ruby Soho is All Elite!
After a month of teasers and reference-laden hype packages on social media, the former Ruby Riott made her AEW debut as the Joker entrant in the 2021 Women’s Casino Battle Royale at last night’s All Out event.
Soho went on to win the battle royale, finally eliminating Thunder Rosa and earning a championship match against AEW Women’s World Champion, Britt Baker, who retained her championship earlier on the All Out card. As announced later on in the show, Ruby Soho will be making her AEW Dynamite debut this upcoming Wednesday in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she will be addressing her current status as the #1 contender for Baker’s title.
Ruby Soho was released by WWE as part of the June 2nd, 2021 pack of releases, having made her final WWE appearance on SmackDown five days prior, losing a tag match with Liv Morgan to the team of Natalya and Tamina. AEW All Out marks her first appearance outside of WWE since the end of her 90-day no-compete clause from her former employer.
Also, as hinted by Rancid guitarist and vocalist Lars Frederiksen on the Wrestling Perspective podcast, Ruby’s new name is accompanied by the song her name originates from, Rancid’s own “Ruby Soho,” as a cherry on top.
We here at AIPT look forward to seeing what Ruby Soho does next in her burgeoning AEW career!
