WWE released lot of people over the past several months. This week’s episode of AEW Dark: Elevation included the debut of two former NXT Superstars.

Both Santana Garrett and Arturo Ruas made their AEW debuts during this week’s AEW Dark: Elevation. Garrett kept her name, but Ruas is now wrestling as Adrian Jaoude.

Garrett was part of the show’s cold open where she cut a backstage interview. That is a good sign for her future in AEW. We have not heard about any contract, but she definitely got some decent screen time.

During her promo, Garrett said that she is proud to be elite. Then Diamante welcomed her with a challenge that Garrett accepted.


Jaoude competed in the ring with Cezar Bononi. The two are best friends in real life. That was a pretty cool spot for both of them to receive from Tony Khan.

We’ll have to see what’s next for them, but they certainly made their mark this week.
