Ruby Soho, formerly Ruby Riott in WWE, made her AEW debut at the 2021 All Out PPV by winning the women’s casino battle royale.
After the show ended, Soho spoke with media and talked about her debut…
“I have never experienced anything like that before. To have people have that anticipation for me and for people to want that and for people to get it, and getting excited is something that I think all of us in the wrestling industry that I have four. That moment of just being accepted and wanted and welcomed at this new Incredible company that you work for. That’s always a scare, right? You’re working in a new place, ‘Am I going to be accepted? Am I going to fit in?’ It just felt like home immediately from the moment I walked out there and it was just incredible.”
“The videos that were put out, I was happy with the reception of them because people understood the story and people could — it seemed like people felt the actual journey I went on and the struggle I went through and now, this rebirth that I am at now. So, it was awesome.” (quotes courtesy of Fightful.com)
