Dasha, who usually only does ring announcing, does have wrestling experience. She was originally hired by WWE as a wrestler and competed in one NXT match. However, AEW's QT Marshall noted on Twitter Monday that she'd been training with Shawn Spears at Flatbacks Gym.
In the first week of the tournament, the Nightmare Sisters (Brandi & Allie) defeated Penelope Ford & Mel and in addition, Tay Conti & Anna Jay defeated Nyla Rose & Ariane Andrew to advance to the semifinals.
