Hi everyone 🙂 I just got out of my shoulder surgery, and all is well. For the next two days I will most likely sleep and eat only ice cream and soup. But after that…I will be working my ass off in any way I can. Thanks for all of the support and well wishes. 🙏🏼❣️ -99 pic.twitter.com/p12hX4DWgQ

Anna was going to be competing in the U.S. bracket of the Women’s World Title Eliminator tournament. Her first-round match-up was going to be Britt Baker. The eventual winner of the tournament was Ryo Mizunami who went on to challenge Hikaru Shida for the title at Revolution. Jay, 22, was replaced in the tournament by Madi Wrenkowski.
Jay is a member of the Dark Order faction and is also referred to as ’99’, which is the group number that was given to her by the late Jon Huber (Brodie Lee).
