WWE let a lot of people go on April 15th including Taynara Conti. Now she is free to go and wrestled wherever she likes. This includes AEW and that’s happening this week.
Chris Jericho spilled the beans about Taynara Conti working the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament. This was an exciting bit of news for NXT fans who always wanted to see more of the Brazilian wrestle on television.
AEW confirmed today that Conti will team with Anna Jay to face Nyla Rose and Ariane in the first episode of the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament.
The AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament kicks off TONIGHT via our Official YouTube Channel at 7e/6c as @NylaRoseBeast & @ArianeAndrew take on @annajay___ & @TayConti_!
It is interesting that AEW put these matches on their YouTube channel and not TNT. They are obviously building their brand strategically.
Let’s see if AEW decides that Taynara Conti is a good fit to continue their relationship with the 25-year-old former WWE NXT Superstar.
