One of the biggest ‘what if’ moments in the short history of All Elite Wrestling is Kylie Rae. She was one of their first names signed, and likely to be pushed as the face of their women’s division. However, for whatever reason the deal didn’t work out, and she would retire from the professional wrestling industry briefly.
We would see a similar situation happen with Kylie & Impact Wrestling. However, the third time might be a charm as it’s been reported first by Fightful that Kylie Rae has signed on to join the National Wrestling Alliance.
Kylie Rae Makes Her Debut Tonight For NWA
Tonight is when Kylie Rae would make her debut for the promotion. As part of their ‘When Our Shadows Fall’ special, she would team with former TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Taryn Terrell to take on Melina & Thunder Rosa.
Rae only made her return to the ring for Warrior Wrestling yesterday, where she was able to defend their Women’s Championship against Holidead. Prior to that, she last wrestled in October 2020, when she defeated Kimber Lee in Impact Wrestling. Rae managed a steady string of dates on the independents in 2020, and hopefully she’s able to now make 2021 a busy year as well.
A Small But Rock Solid Division
Right now, the NWA has a small division for their women. The focus since their reboot has been on raising the prestige of the NWA World Championship, with the NWA Women’s Championship more notably being defended by both Thunder Rosa & Serena Deeb in All Elite Wrestling.
Their division prioritizes quality over quantity, and adding someone like Kylie Rae is a smart move on their part. She’s a top level worker who will work wonders with a name like Serena Deeb. This might even be a way for Rae to return to AEW if that’s something she’s interested in, as the NWA Women’s divisions has links with the AEW division.
