Willow Nightingale has expressed her joy at becoming “All Elite” after the company announced her signing on Rampage.

After Nightingale defeated Leila Grey on Friday’s show, Tony Schiavone came to the ring to officially reveal the news.

On Saturday, the 28-year-old appeared to confirm that the announcement was a genuine surprise as she revealed on Twitter, “I didn’t even see that it was on that giant screen behind me,” adding, “Sometimes life is a dream.”

She also thanked everyone “for the love” after Tony Khan welcomed her to the team in one of his now-traditional Twitter messages after announcing an AEW signing.

Nightingale has previously performed in Ring of Honor, including at Supercard of Honor XV. She also has extensive experience on the indie circuit, with promotions such as Beyond Wrestling and Black Label Pro.

After a visa delay, she is also due to make her debut for Tokyo Joshi Pro on October 29th.
