Last week on Dynamite, AEW announced their inaugural Women’s Tag Team Cup tournament that’ll kick off next Monday on the All Elite Wrestling YouTube channel. There are 16 women in the tournament and there will be eight teams and one of those teams were formed on the 7/29 edition of Dynamite. Nyla Rose, along with Vickie Guerrero did a backstage interview and Nyla pulled the color purple and was informed that purple was also drawn by former WWE talent Ariane Andrew.
Ariane Andrew, formerly known as “Cameron” in WWE last wrestled at a WWE house show in 2016. She was scheduled to make her in-ring return this past April during WrestleMania weekend at EFFY’s Big Gay Brunch show but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festivities of WrestleMania weekend were cancelled.
Ariane released a video in May of 2019 and said she was not done with wrestling and was planning on making her return. During an interview with Ring The Belle in January of 2019, Ariane had the following to say about a potential return while she was speaking about a move she was working into her arsenal when she ventured back to NXT from the main roster:
“You know I had to do the regular DDT when people can’t base me because that one requires a group effort. I just felt that it was very flashy and cute and I actually had came up with another finisher when I was down in NXT as my comeback — no you guys didn’t get to see that, but maybe you guys will in the future. I may have an announcement to possibly make. Who knows what it’s about? Hmm, to possibly, maybe come back in WWE. I don’t know, maybe. But I don’t know, who’s to say? I don’t know.”
It has been a full four years since Ariane last wrestled and she’ll be making her return as a part of All Elite Wrestling.
