In early August, we let you know that Fightful Select reported that AEW would most likely become the new home of the former Ruby Riott in WWE. In addition, in July the news was released that Ruby has registered the trademark "The Runway" which now also takes on its meaning with a video that the wrestler herself has posted on social networks.
As reported by Fightful Select, AEW talents have been told that there is interest in bringing Ruby Riott to the roster.
What's Ruby Riott's situation?
But other companies have also contacted Runy to hire her, but she informed them that she is currently not interested.
Also a few hours ago a video was released on Ruby's official social profiles, where the girl is running into a train station to catch a train with a ticket in hand and a backpack on her shoulder. Unfortunately, she cannot reach him because he has already left and she seems almost resigned.
The ticket is clearly visible starting in Orlando and arriving in New York. The video then ends with two words: “The Runaway” and “To Be Continued”. We remind you that Ruby was fired from WWE on June 2, 2021, with a 90-day non-competition clause like all other athletes.
This led Fightful to say: "[...] As far as we know, Ruby's non-compete clause was in effect until just prior to AEW All Out." Now we just have to wait and see where the athlete will actually land, also because there have been very conflicting rumors, between the fact that the AEW wants her and she who is not accepting any kind of job.
But surely we will understand more by continuing to follow her on social networks to see how that video she posted will go on, maybe another train will take her exactly where at least some of us want to see her, life and the world of wrestling are always unpredictable.
Or maybe the fact that she missed the train will be a sign that she has to stay in Orlando. Signing with WWE in 2016, Ruby Riott was an integral part of the women's division of the company, first in NXT and then on the main roster.
Ruby Riott is best known for her time as the leader of the Riott Squad alongside Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan. Nearly 24 hours after her sudden WWE release, Ruby Riott has broken the silence and issued the following statement through her Instagram.
