Athena reacts to AEW debut: 'Still can't believe last night happened'

The former Ember Moon was released by WWE in November 2021.

The former Ember Moon has reacted to making her AEW debut at Double or Nothing.

"On top of the world!!! Still can't believe last night happened," Athena tweeted on Monday. "Thank you .@aew for the extremy warm welcome. I promise you won't be disappointed!! I'm on a whole 'nother level now because I am #AllElite!! #FallenGoddess #TheAlpha"

Athena arrived in AEW by helping Anna Jay and Kris Statlander even the odds against Jade Cargill and The Baddies (Red Velvet and Kiera Hogan) at Double or Nothing.

Cargill retained her TBS Championship against Jay on Sunday after getting help from the debuting Stokely Hathaway (formerly known as Malcolm Bivens). After the match, Cargill, Velvet, and Hogan went to attack Jay until Statlander ran out to the ring. Athena then made her way out to join Jay and Statlander as they went face-to-face with Cargill and The Baddies.

AEW officially confirmed last night that both Athena and Hathaway have signed with the company.

Athena was released by WWE in November of last year. She had two stints in NXT and one main roster run while with WWE, including winning the NXT Women's Championship and NXT Women's Tag Team Championship one time each.
