Another company has reached out to an AEW star before they made their debut in the promotion.
As previously reported, WOW (Women of Wrestling) made attempts to sign The Inspiration before the duo ended up in IMPACT Wrestling. The company also had talks with Maria Kanellis following the Ring of Honor hiatus.
However, this doesn’t seem to be the only major star that the company attempted to acquire.
Fightful Select (subscription required) provided an update on one other star that WOW tried to bring in, noting that feelers were sent out to those connected to now-AEW star Ruby Soho shortly after her WWE release.
The report doesn’t note if Soho had any actual talks with WOW, but the company was told pretty quickly that she was not taking any bookings.
This led many to believe that Ruby would be on her way to All Elite Wrestling.
Ruby Soho signed with AEW and debuted for the promotion at the All Out 2021 event in Chicago.
It was also noted that original pitches heard for the roster of WOW are “categorically different” from the approach since taken in the year that followed.
Ruby Soho has been out of action with a nose injury suffered at the All Out 2022 pay-per-view.
As previously reported, Soho has underwent surgery on her broken nose just last month.
