Ruby Soho has named the AEW stars she wants to wrestle, besides Britt Baker, following her surprise debut for the promotion at All Out.
During the September 5 pay-per-view, Soho won the women’s Casino Battle Royale, earning a shot at Baker’s AEW Women’s Championship. The former WWE star has revealed that she has thought of plenty of matches she wants to have following her title bout.
Speaking with Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Soho named the likes of Tay Conti, Nyla Rose and Thunder Rosa as potential opponents. Also detailing her history with Serena Deeb, Soho said:
“As far as the women and the vision, I have so many of them that I want to step into the ring with just because everybody… One of the things I love about this division is everybody is so different. Everybody’s so different. Everybody comes from different walks of life. Everybody’s talented in different ways.
“If I had to choose, I’ve thought about this question a lot. If had to choose in this moment, I want to do one from the past, the present and the future. I think the future is with Taynara (Tay Conti). I’ve known Taynara for a long time. I knew her when she first started and the person that she is and the fighter that she is, is different. She’s incredibly skilled, she’s a real black belt. I feel like would take me to my limit.
“And I definitely want to mix it up with her. As far as the current Nyla Rose, she is without a shadow of a doubt, probably one of the most powerful women in the company. And I think she took on me and Thunder Rosa, pretty much single-handedly in that Battle Royal. I genuinely think that if I was able to mix it up with her and and possibly defeat her, then that would be a huge milestone in my career. And I just think she’s incredibly talented and I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time.
“As far as the past goes, I don’t even think it’s passed at this point because she is honestly in her prime. But she is somebody, I have been a huge fan of, since I started, is Serena Deeb. Serena and I have actually, I’ve followed her without, because everywhere she went, I have ended up a few years later.
“But it was Shimmer, OVW, WWE. I’ve just been a couple of steps behind her. But I’ve always been a huge, huge, huge fan of her and honestly, I think she is better than she’s ever been, right now. I think that I watched her and just been, ‘Oh gosh, Serena is so cool.” I can’t say that enough.
“She is definitely someone that I think it would be an honor to step into the ring with and just learn from. Those are the three that come to mind. Obviously, it’s everybody, everybody in the ring. I just want to wrestle them. I just want to wrestle.”
Soho is currently undefeated in AEW, defeating Jamie Hayter on last week’s Dynamite, and winning a six-woman tag team bout alongside Kris Statlander and Riho on Rampage last Friday.
