The debuting AQA will challenge Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship on tonight's AEW Dynamite.
AEW president Tony Khan made the announcement today on Twitter.
AQA wrestled as Zayda Ramier in WWE NXT prior to her November 2021 release. A graduate of Booker T's Reality of Wrestling school and promotion, AQA's most high-profile WWE win came over Toni Storm on the April 21, 2021 NXT episode.
AQA's release came after she was medically disqualified by WWE. In a podcast appearance, AQA stated that she had suffered from anxiety-related issues and that WWE disqualified her because they could not determine an underlying cause for the anxiety, but that their medical personnel had at one point cleared her.
AQA had a total of just five matches with NXT, but all of them aired on television. Her last WWE match came in June 2021, where she teamed with Zoey Stark in a losing effort against Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae.
