WWE recently had several names in for a tryout who have appeared on AEW Dark. Now the situation is going the other way around as Natalia Markova, who was just at the WWE Performance Center for a tryout, is set to make her AEW debut.

Markova is going to perform on AEW Dark: Elevation next week. She will face Leyla Hirsch in singles action. This will also mark Markova’s debut for the company.

We will have to see if this booking encourages WWE to give her a call. That was also Markova’s second tryout with Vince McMahon’s company. She is looking to work more as the pandemic stopped her momentum in its tracks last year.

As Ringside News exclusively reported, Markova became a free agent while holding the SHINE Nova Championship. She has since tried out for WWE and is now appearing for AEW. Odds are fans have not seen the last of her at all.

“You happy to watch me on #AEWDark Elevation this Monday?” Markova tweeted out along with a graphic to hype her match. She also used an emoji to illustrate her excitement.

You can check out a video below of Natalia Markova wrestling Shotzi Blackheart in EVOLVE. That video is also hosted on WWE’s official YouTube channel.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
