The AEW Women's Tag-Team Cup Tournament has been a success so far. We have already seen a number of great matches and another matchup has already been announced for later tonight.
Ivelisse and Diamante, who recently faced each other on Dynamite, will team up to take on the team of Dasha Gonzalez and former WWE NXT star Rachael Ellering.
Racheal Ellering was signed to WWE NXT until her release from the company earlier this year. Ellering's release was attributed to her being unhappy with the treatment she had received for her injury. Her complaints regarding the procedures reportedly made higher-ups in WWE unhappy.
Dasha Gonzalez was formerly an interviewer with WWE before her release. She then signed with All Elite Wrestling. Dasha signed a developmental deal with WWE in 2014 as an in-ring talent but later transitioned to the role of an interviewer with NXT in 2015.
This will be Dasha Gonzalez's first match in AEW and it will be an interesting matchup.
Check out Dasha Gonzalez's reaction to her first AEW match:
I’m on cloud 9 right now!!! I can’t even believe that this happened!!! It’s been a dream of mine for quite some time and it just goes to show that you can dream big, set goals and accomplish them! Thank you…
