Maki Itoh made an early impression in AEW when she competed in the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament in 2021. She drew lot of attention from fans, and she was brought to America for AEW Revolution 2021 and the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament. Itoh would also reject a WWE offer out of loyalty to AEW.

Steve Fall spoke to Maki Itoh where he wondered if she had ever received a WWE offer. Itoh confirmed that she never received an offer from WWE yet. However, if WWE gives her a cheeky offer from nowhere, she would not accept it out of loyalty towards AEW.

No, nothing. The reason she became this popular is thanks to AEW. Whatever happens, even if WWE gives her a cheeky offer from nowhere, she would not accept it and she would stay right beside AEW all the way.

Maki Itoh had a short run in AEW back in March 2021 and fans enjoyed so much about her. She would then return as the Joker entry as part of the Owen Hart Cup Tournament, where she faced off against Britt Baker. Itoh competed on the November 28 episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, teaming with Emi Sakura in a loss to Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir.


It is still unknown when Itoh will return to AEW television. She is now competing in Tokyo Joshi Pro and made a return to GCW in November to fight Masha Slamovich. Keep an eye on Ringside News for more.
