In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that A.Q.A is part of the next group of WWE Performance Center signees:

Priscilla Kelly, a wrestler named AQA, Elayna Black, Saree from Japan (who is really good) and Lacey Ryan from Las Vegas are among those who are starting out in Orlando in the next class. Saree was signed almost a year ago but due to all the issues with COVID and visas, they hadn’t brought her in and she continued to work in Japan. She did her final match this week and said she was leaving. Anthony Henry is believed to be part of this class. Kelly is the ex-wife of Darby Allin and was a regular with the WWN promotions including Evolve before they fell victim to the pandemic and other issues. She worked some AEW and looked good but wasn’t signed. Black also worked some AEW Dark and wasn’t signed. Ryan has worked for Impact and Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.

A.Q.A's full name is Angela Quentina Arnold. She was trained by Booker T at his Reality of Wrestling school and is a two-time former Reality of Wrestling Diamonds Division Champion. She's also wrestled for Rise and Shimmer.

Priscilla Kelly's new in-ring name is Gigi Dolin, Elayna Black is now Cora Jade, and Lacey Ryan is now Zoey Stark. All three are taking part in the women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Dolin & Jade are teaming together against Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell in a first round match on tonight's episode of 205 Live. Stark & Marina Shafir are facing Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon in the first round of the tournament.
