On his latest YouTube show, Chris Jericho has revealed that a former WWE star have already filmed their AEW debut.
Taynara Conti signed for WWE NXT back in 2017, but was released along with over twenty more stars back in April. According to Jericho Conti has teamed up with Anna Jay to take on Nyla Rose and Ariane Andrew as part of the AEW Women’s Tag Team Tournament.
Conti was released from WWE as part of a cost cutting exercise back in April, which was to ensure that the company made a record income despite the Coronavirus pandemic. Conti was used in both Mae Young Classic matches and had a few TV matches with NXT, but like many other youngsters, she was underutilised.
Conti was not planning to stay with WWE for long, infact she had previously asked to be released but it was not granted. It was a bit of a show that she was released during a global health crisis, but it is good that she is now back on track.
