AEW has their eye on the entire pro wrestling world. They also know how much value they can find in the UK, and it appears that they are keeping a close eye on Mariah May.
AEW is set to hold a massive show in the UK for All In London. They might just use that opportunity to get a little closer to Mariah May. Although she has tried out for WWE in the past, AEW has interest in her.
Sean Sapp noted on Fightful Select that discussions have taken place within All Elite Wrestling regarding the possibility of collaborating with Mariah May. The 25-year-old wrestler, originally from the UK, has been active in the wrestling scene for approximately four and a half years and has amassed a considerable fan base.
Back in 2019, WWE has a WWE UK Performance Center Tryout. The company had reached out to her almost immediately after her wrestling career started. We’ve been told that WWE has kept an eye on her ever since then as well, but that AEW has been the company picking up steam as a potential landing point.
We’ve not been told if May and AEW or WWE have had active conversations or negotiations. She’s currently in Japan, where she’s been working a heavy schedule with Stardom, including a recent singles match with Giulia that many considered the best of Mariah’s run with the company. There has been speculation over the last week that she may be finishing up in Japan and be signed somewhere after she shut down her Big Cartel store, and posted a tweet saying “I will never forget this time of my life. Thankful” while remembering some of her matches in Japan. The day prior, she and Mina Shirakawa dropped the Goddess of Stardom titles to the Cosmic Angels.
It was also noted that there is no confirmation that Mariah May signed with AEW, but there certainly is traction to her going there. Only time will tell if they figure something out, but she’s certainly on AEW’s radar.
