On the latest episode of Cody’s YouTube series The Road To Double Or Nothing, Brandi Rhodes announced that the promotion has signed UK female star Bea Priestley:
Fans may better know Bea from her work in the incredibly strong UK independent scene in promotions such as Defiant Wrestling and World Of Sport Wrestling where she held both promotions Women’s Championships. She is also known for her work in Japan for all female promotions like Stardom and Tokyo Joshi Pro.
She will make her debut for AEW at their July event in Jacksonville Florida.

Sir Mitch Says: This is a big get for AEW! Bea is a phenomenal worker who WWE was trying very hard to sign to their fledging NXT: UK brand but obviously failed to do so.
Bea is also the real-life girlfriend of NJPW star Will Ospreay, so it will be interesting to see what happens there when his current contract is up.
