In a touching display of solidarity, AEW star Tay Melo has publicly voiced her support for fellow wrestler Nikki Cross. Cross, a former RAW Women's Champion, recently announced her participation in a marathon aimed at raising awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a chronic illness currently without a cure.

She's collaborating with the medical non-profit organization Jar of Hope to amplify the cause. Melo responded to a social media post by Big Damo, who disclosed his wife Cross's commitment to the marathon. Through her message, Melo expressed deep admiration for Cross, hailing her as a significant inspirational figure.

"She inspires me so much," Melo stated in her tweet, reflecting her respect for the former Ms. Money In The Bank winner.

Tay Melo's Ring Mastery

Tay Melo's prowess in the ring is well-known among AEW fans. A judo black belt and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast, Melo has made a significant impact since her arrival in AEW in August 2020.

Her exceptional in-ring abilities have seen her engage with top-tier talent like Anna Jay, Hikaru Shida, Britt Baker, and Jade Cargill. Off the ring, Melo's personal life has been just as eventful. In 2022, she married AEW colleague Sammy Guevara.

The couple, having held the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship, are well-regarded in the wrestling community. A notable attendee at their wedding was Cody Rhodes, the 2024 Men's Royal Rumble winner. Melo recently reminisced about her wedding day, sharing her fond memories in response to a social media post featuring a photograph of herself with Rhodes and Guevara.

"Cool photo 😍 the best day ever," Melo commented, reflecting the joy of her wedding day. Melo's last appearance on AEW television was on the January 11, 2023 episode of Rampage, where she teamed up with Anna Jay in a Street Fight against Willow Nightingale and Ruby Soho.

Her recent social media activity, particularly her support for Nikki Cross's noble cause, highlights her influence both inside and outside the ring.
