During a post-show media scrum, Soho discussed her arrival in All Elite Wrestling and made it clear that she hopes to finally hold a title on national television in this new chapter of her career. (Soho, formerly known as Ruby Riott, never won a championship during her time with WWE.) She also noted that her first night as a member of the AEW roster helped her find her love for wrestling again.
“Since I have been on national television, I have never held a title, ever,” said Soho. “And I think tonight I have solidified my opportunity to potentially be the AEW Women’s Champion, which to me is the biggest honor that I could possibly have. And so that’s of course a goal, is to be able to hold gold for the first time on national television. That’s an amazing goal, and it’s not one I take lightly. But I think I just wanna find my love for wrestling, and I think I found it tonight.”
The AEW newcomer will have the chance to accomplish this goal. Due to Soho’s victory in the Casino Battle Royale on Sunday night, she earned a shot to challenge for the AEW Women’s World Championship, currently held by Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. In the scrum, Soho described how she has been “studying” Baker for many years, and she goes way back with AEW’s resident dentist, so she knows her quite well as it is. Soho then pointed to her excitement and her rekindled passion as two advantage she plans to lean on in this potential bout.
“I have known Britt Baker for a very long time, prior to AEW, back on the independents when she first broke in, I have known Britt Baker,” said Soho. “But I also have been studying her for many years and just keeping up with her career. And she is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the hardest-working women in this industry, both in and out of the ring. So she will definitely be a very difficult opponent to come across.
“But I definitely think I have an advantage, being the new girl in town, and I think I have the advantage of having this newfound love for wrestling, this newfound fire that has been lit. That’s what I’m gonna take into it and just use all of the excitement and feelings I felt tonight, and I’m gonna take it into my match with her.”
