One of the up and coming stars of female wrestling is at a crossroads in her career at the moment. Bea Priestley has been improving every single time she enters the ring, and now is done with the promotion she called home. She finished up with Stardom at Yokohama Dream Cinderella In Spring, where she failed to win the World Of Stardom Title from Utami Hayashishita in a fantastic match.
Following the match, she would cut a promo that was transcribed by the official Stardom twitter count. “Bea said she loves Utami, loves Momo and loves Stardom. She thanks Stardom and says it’s her last match. Thank you Japan.” Add in her being kicked out of The United Empire by her husband and new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay, and it’s clear that she’s finally leaving Japan. This leaves a few options for her, but namely AEW or WWE.
Bea Priestley Has History With AEW
More fans want to see the first option there. Priestley has spent some time in AEW, with her final appearance being her holding up the AEW Women’s Championship in the air. It was held by Nyla Rose at the time, but the sentiment was always there. She wants that belt, and now she’s a strong enough wrestler to believably hold it.
Priestley re-joining this division as Kris Statlander, Riho and Ryo Mizunami all recently made returns would certainly just add to the rise of this division, and could help it just get even better. Maybe if they keep stacking it, we can get Dynamite to have more than one Women’s match per week!
Adding To NXT UK’s Stacked Women’s Division
However, the more likely option comes in NXT UK. Priestley lives in the UK, where NXT UK is easier to get to than AEW which means having to travel overseas to Florida. The NXT UK women’s division is getting absolutely insane, with recent additions like Meiko Satomura, Millie MacKenzie and Bobby Tyler recently signing up.
Add in Kay Lee Ray being as great as ever, and Piper Niven, Isla Dawn and more picking up their game? Priestley would be joining in at the exact right time to face some of the best in the world. This seems like the most likely option, but we won’t know until she pops up in either company, or even somewhere unexpected like Ring Of Honor.
