Ruby Riott’s Career in WWE
She made her debut on Smackdown in 2017 as the leader of Riott Squad alongside Livv Morgan and Sarah Logan. They failed to capture any gold in their 3 year run as a group.
She faced the likes of Charlotte and Rousey for the championship on several occasions but failed to capture it. Ruby suffered a major injury in 2019 which sidelined her for a very long time.
Ruby Riott made her return in February of 2020 and lingered around in the mid-card feuding with the likes of Livv Morgan and the IIconics until her release in June of 2021.
Her non-compete clause ends in September 2021. Which makes her available to debut in AEW in their All Out PPV.
This move to AEW would be highly beneficial for Ruby. WWE massively underutilized her. So, she has a chance to reinvent herself and show the world what she is truly capable of in AEW.
