The former Funkadactyl provided clarity on her contract status during Ariana Andrew's YouTube show "Sippin the Tea":
“Ok, since we are spilling tea, I’m gonna keep it one-thousand-percent so everyone can hear it right here, right now. I am not with AEW. That was just a little something,”
AEW or WWE in Andrew's future?
This week's episode of "Sippin the Tea" featured Ariane Andrew interviewing her former WWE tag team partner Naomi. The current SmackDown Superstar expressed her excitement in seeing Andrew return to professional wrestling.
Naomi questioned if Ariane Andrew's return to the squared circle could lead to a future Funkadactyls reunion at some point in the future. Andrew as quick to point out that she is still a free agent and would like to team with Naomi once again:
“It’s not official. So there’s still a door, Hello, Vince! Is you listening? Funkadactyl reunion.”
Ariane Andrew teamed with former AEW Women's World Champion Nyla Rose in the first round of the AEW Women's Tag Team Cup tournament last night.
Unfortunately, Rose and Andrew would be defeated by Anna Jay and Tay Conti. This led to Nyla Rose attacking Ariane Andrew once the match was finished, leaving with her new business manager Vickie Guerrero.
