While All Elite Wrestling (AEW) continues to add veterans to its rosters, such as recent signees Matt Hardy, Lance Archer, and Brodie Lee (WWE’s Luke Harper), it also continues to work on building its future as well. On Monday night, AEW announced they had signed just such a prospect, with the official reveal that they had signed Anna Jayy to the company following an impressive debut last week on AEW Dynamite against the #1 Contender for the AEW Women’s title, Hikaru Shida.
Anna Jayy only began her wrestling career last year in 2019, when the native of St. Simons Island, Georgia began training at the 1 Fall Power Factory in Georgia under the guidance of former WCW Superstar Glacier and current AEW star QT Marshall. She’s become a regular feature with Georgia Premier Wrestling (GPW) since last fall. She’s also recently debuted with New Jersey’s Empower Wrestling as well. “The Star of the Show” Anna Jayy made her AEW debut on April 1 against Shida, in a match taped at QT Marshall’s school.
It would appear that Anna Jayy impressed officials in her hard-hitting match against Hikaru Shida and the Georgia native is now officially All Elite.
🎵Hard times breed better men🎵 …and women
Anna Jay showed up and stepped up. Hung in there with an absolute killer like Shida! Congratulations. https://t.co/DnqMS9ls73
