Ruby Soho had her destination locked in once she was released by WWE on June 2.
Ruby officially joined AEW at All Out when she was the Joker in the Women's Casino Battle Royale. Soho would win the battle royale, earning a shot at the AEW Women's Championship.
Speaking to Mike Beauvais of TSN, Soho confirmed interest from other companies once she was released, but she only had one place in mind.
“I had a few companies reach out to me, but the only company that I wanted to go to, the only company I felt like was the best fit for me was AEW and it wasn’t a matter of ‘Oh, I’m gonna get there,’ it was a matter of ‘Oh, I hope I can get there.’ I hope they’ll allow me to be a part of their roster,” Soho said.
Soho is set to take on Britt Baker on Wednesday episode of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Speaking about Baker, Soho said, "She is really, truly, incredibly talented. One of the things that I’ve envied a lot about her is, regardless of whether or not she was injured and on the shelf or healthy, she was always [still] talking and making herself known and improving. Every time she’s stepped into the ring thereafter, I’ve seen improvement from her. I’ve known her long before AEW and long before I went to WWE. I knew her from the indies when she first started and to see the growth from her is very impressive.”
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
