Sadie Gibbs' wrestling career, AEW stint, and what lies ahead in the future
Sadie Gibbs began wrestling in 2017, and after working for various promotions for two years, she signed a contract with AEW in May 2019.
Gibbs made her AEW debut at All Out 2019 as part of the Women's Casino Battle Royale. Gibbs wrestled in just three matches in AEW as the COVID-19 pandemic led to unforeseen travel issues across the pro-wrestling circuit. AEW eventually released the London-based wrestler in August 2020 due to all the travel restrictions in place.
