WWE held a recent tryout on May 6th and 7th in Orlando, Florida at the Performance Center that was for female talent.
Fightful Select learned of some of the names that were there and there are a few wrestlers mentioned who have all appeared on AEW Dark, which is basically All Elite Wrestling’s developmental show.
Tesha Price worked Britt Baker in a dark match during the Mae Young Classic and faced Lacey Evans on NXT TV in 2018. She has made nearly 20 appearances on Dark since last November and even worked a match with AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida on Dynamite in December.
Alex Gracia has made appearances for NWA, Stardom, Impact Wrestling and EVOLVE. She’s also worked matches for AEW that dates back to September.
Ava Everett has been working Limitless Wrestling as of late. She’s also made appearances for CZW, Beyond, and other promotions. Finally, Natalia Markova has worked for the likes of SHINE, EVOLVe, and PROGRESS. She attended a WWE tryout in 2017.
It should be noted that the majority of wrestlers who work on Dark are independent wrestlers and not under contract with AEW.
