Speaking on a post-show media scrum after AEW All Out, Ruby explains why this means so much to her and how one of her major goals is to finally hold a championship on global television.
"So since I have been on national television, I have never held a title. Ever. I think, tonight, I have solidified my opportunity to potentially be the AEW Women's Champion, which to me is the biggest honor that I could possibly have. So that's, of course, a goal is to be able to hold gold for the first time on national television. Like that's an amazing goal and it's not one I take lightly. But I think I just want to find my love for wrestling again, and I think I found it tonight."
Additionally, one of Ruby's loves is punk rock. as is evident by her new ring name, she is a big fan of the band Rancid. Earlier in the press conference, Ruby spoke about being a fan of rancid and having the name of Ruby Soho bestowed upon her by Lars Frederiksen and what that means to her.
"I have been a fan of Rancid for a very, very long time. Coincidentally enough, I don't know if you guys know this, but a lot of punk bands are big wrestling fans. Lars and I had became friends over the last couple years. I had kind of come upon a time where I was like, 'Okay, I need to know what I'm gonna be called, where what my musics gonna be.' He suggested, and like bestowed upon me Ruby Soho and the music and I'd never been so like, I was on camera. I was like, 'Oh my god.' Like I couldn't even like contain my excitement, because it just seems surreal and it was hearing it tonight and coming out to and hearing people chant Ruby Soho and that's me, was amazing. It was like all of my loves punk rock and professional wrestling like came together tonight. In this like, beautiful story that's just indescribable."
