AEW star Ruby Soho recently commented on how much a recent intergender match with former IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander meant to her.

The former WWE Superstar's final match of 2021 was part of the "Unstoppable" card for independent promotion AAW. After a remarkable contest, Alexander emerged victorious.

During an interview with the NY Post, Soho talked about how special the match was and specifically referenced her respect for Josh Alexander. She stated that sharing the main event with him is something she'll always remember.

"I came back five years exactly to the date of my last match on the independents, which was a complete accident by the way. But then being able to face someone like Josh Alexander that I have tremendous respect for, (...) being able to main event that show and have the match with him is something that’s I’ll remember forever. It was a really beautiful moment." said Soho.
😭😭😭@Walking_Weapon is my favorite wrestler! It was MY honor to be able to step in the ring with him. I’m still reeling from last night. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Josh!…

Ruby Soho made her name on the independent circuit while working intergender matches against the likes of Eddie Kingston, Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor.

Could fans potentially see intergender matches in AEW? Despite her previous experience, Soho doesn't seem eager to bring this style to AEW. Instead, she's focused on helping the women's division grow.

"Not that I’ve seen. I’m mainly concerned about elevating the women’s division to its fullest. I spent quite a bit of time on the independents doing inter-gender wrestling." Soho continued

Ruby Soho has her sights set on AEW gold

Following her thrilling match with Alexander, Soho will once again focus on the title scene in AEW.

This quest has been hindered by two setbacks so far; The first being when Soho lost to AEW Women's World Champion Britt Baker last September. She also came up short against Jade Cargill in the finals of the TBS Women's Championship Tournament on Wednesday.

Despite a rough start to 2022 for Soho, it's surely just a matter of time before the former WWE Superstar climbs to the top of the mountain and claims AEW gold.
