In the most recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was reported that another name will join recently announced signees Elayna Black (Cora Jade), Priscilla Kelly (Gigi Dolan), Lacey Ryan (Zoey Stark), and incoming Japanese sensation Sareee for the January class at the WWE Performance Center. WON reports that Texas-based indie star AQA will also be a part of that class.
AQA is only 23 years old, but she’s learned from some of the best – she’s a student of 2x WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, and was a top star for Booker’s Houston-based promotion Reality of Wrestling (ROW), where she’s a former 2x ROW Diamond Champions. Following a joint show between ROW and RISE Wrestling in January of 2019, RISE 12: ROW On The RISE, AQA was offered spots on both the RISE and SHIMMER rosters. She made her official RISE debut at Early to RISE (the preshow for RISE 13: Legendary), where she faced off against Allysin Kay, before entering the #1 Contenders battle royale at Legendary. She followed up with her SHIMMER debut at SHIMMER 109, in a scramble match with Shotzi Blackheart, Hyan, Keira Hogan, Miranda Alize, and Penelope Ford. In July of 2019, she appeared for IMPACT Wrestling in the IMPACT and ROW joint event Deep IMPACT, where she was in a Fatal Four Way against Tessa Blanchard, Su Yung, and her ROW rival Hyan. She spent most of 2020 recovering from an injury, but it now appears that her journey will continue with WWE on the NXT brand.
