AEW has announced a new addition to its roster.

It was officially confirmed today that Tay Conti has signed with AEW. She made her debut for the promotion by teaming with Anna Jay in the Women's Tag Team Cup this summer.

Conti & Jay defeated Ariane Andrew & Nyla Rose in the first round of the Women's Tag Team Cup but lost to Ivelisse & Diamante in the semifinals. On Dynamite two weeks ago, a storyline began where The Dark Order and Jay recruited Conti and offered her a contract to join Jay in the group.

Conti (real name Taynara Melo de Carvalho) is a 25 year old who was born in Brazil and has a background in judo. In April, she was released by WWE as part of the company's roster cuts. She signed with WWE in 2016 and had been part of the NXT roster prior to being released.

In her first match since it was announced that she's signed with AEW, Conti will be in action against Nyla Rose (w/ Vickie Guerrero) on tonight's post-All Out episode of Dynamite.
