After triumphing on her AEW debut at All Out, Ruby Soho has opened up about the scene that greeted her backstage to celebrate the biggest win of her career.
Unless your name is CM Punk, debuts don’t come much bigger than Ruby Soho arriving in AEW at All Out on September 5th.
Following her release by WWE in June, many fans hoped that the star would move to AEW and take up a prominent role in their ever-growing women’s roster.
At AEW All Out, those fans got their wish as Ruby Soho debuted to a thunderous ovation before winning the Women’s Casino Battle Royale.
Reflecting on her debut with Inside The Ropes’ very own Kenny McIntosh, Soho recalled breaking down backstage as she was greeted by Tony Khan, Eddie Kingston and Sarah Rowe. (Formerly known as Sarah Logan in WWE)
“It was awesome. I had a lot of people in the back and I just kind of broke. There was so much emotion and so much time had built up to that moment. Like I said, it was overwhelming and more than I could have ever expected or could have asked for. I just broke. A lot of people were there to hug me, Tony was one of them, Eddie Kingston was one of them, who I have known for a long time. But the one that still warms me to my heart was Sarah Rowe.
My best friend flew in from Ohio with her 6-month-old child to be there for me on the biggest day of my career. She was there, and had tears in her eyes and I had tears in my eyes, Cash probably had tears in his eyes too but he was smiling. I just hugged them so tight. She’s been there every step of my career and the same with her. It really meant a lot to me to have her there and it just made that day perfect, honestly.”
On the most recent episode of Dynamite, Soho was back in action in the first round of the TBS Title Tournament. The former WWE Superstar saw off Penelope Ford in impressive style to advance.
