A new era dawns in the realm of professional wrestling as a fresh face joins the ranks of AEW, bringing a wave of excitement to the promotion.

Arkady Unterleidner, known by her stage moniker Arkady Aura, took to Instagram to unveil her official affiliation with the company, sharing a snapshot adorned with the distinctive All Elite graphic.

In her heartfelt announcement, Unterleidner shared her deep feelings, expressing how thankful and happy she feels at this important moment in her journey.

“Not sure I can even put into words how I feel. I’ve cried a few times, screamed with joy and overall let myself burst with excitement the last few weeks.”


“If you’ve followed me awhile you’ll know I tend to chase a lot of dreams and pursue whatever path feels the most fulfilling to me. If you’re friends or family, you’ll know I question that in myself often and if I’m making the right choice. At this moment though, to sit and think every step I’ve taken, whether that was musical theater, pro wrestling, acting or Highland Games, every path has been intertwined and I know leads here for a reason.”

“To the handful of people who’ve believed in me every step of the way, ever since I got into a ring 7 years ago, and who’ve taken a chance on me now, I’m forever grateful.”

“To my love @simmons_strength, without you being the best father in the world, and your support in everything I’ve done, I wouldn’t be here and I know that for a fact. Thank you for everything, always ❤️”

The announcement garnered a flurry of excitement from the wrestling community, with Marandan Renea, a prominent stylist and make-up artist affiliated with AEW, extending a warm welcome to Unterleidner. In social media post, Renea embraced Arkady into the AEW family, hinting at the creative collaborations to come.

“Congratulations @arkittyy welcome to the family!! I’m going to have fun with this face 😜 It’s your time. @tartecosmetics for the win with makeup look. Foundation, concealer, powder, lips…. All @tartecosmetics And @bioionic #stylewinder for the hair.”

In a playful exchange, Unterleidner teased her upcoming appearance at the February 28 AEW Dynamite taping, affirming her readiness to step into the spotlight.
