#4 Sadie Gibbs (2020 record - 0-0; Career - 1-1)
I haven't seen much of Gibbs and you probably haven't either if you've looked for her in AEW. She might be busy overseas like Bea Priestley or there might not be any creative plans for her at the moment. If the latter is the case, then that would be a shame. What I have seen of her has been impressive. She's competed in inter-gender matches against the likes of Joey Janela and she gives and takes as hard as the guys do.
She also has a background in gymnastics which is a fantastic base for pro wrestling. It's why the likes of Ricochet, John Morrison and Kacy Catanzaro are able to move around the ring seamlessly. Along with Parkour, gymnastics allows stars to bend and twist and perform moves that translate wonderfully into the wrestling ring.
The only instances I recall of Gibbs in AEW is during the All Out battle royale and when she came to the aid of someone after they were attacked by the Nightmare Collective. It wasn't in a physical capacity but more of in a "friend checking on a friend" capacity. AEW has mainly pushed a few women (Riho, Britt Baker, Nyla Rose) with a couple others (Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander) receiving mini pushes at different times.
They need to broaden the horizon to include Gibbs and others. Gibbs has a crowd-pleasing move set and although young, is still someone that could be a building block of the division for years to come.Published 12 Feb 2020, 12:01 IST
