Rumored AEW Target Mariah May Reportedly Finished With STARDOM

Update 9/25/23, 6:41pm EST: Dave Meltzer of "Wrestling Observer Radio" initially stated that Mariah May had wrapped up her Japanese commitments and returned to England. This was clearly incorrect as May was, as mentioned in this story, in the middle of the 5*Star Grand Prix and has other announced matches coming up. Meltzer acknowledged his mistake on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Mariah May is reportedly on her way out of World Wonder Ring STARDOM.

In spite of being in the middle of the 5*Star Grand Prix, May is wrapping up her commitments with the Japanese promotion and, according to "Wrestling Observer Radio," will make her way to the exit once that's done. After qualifying from her block in the tournament, May is set to wrestle Hanan this coming weekend. 

But May may already have plans in the works as to where she lands next. In recent months, she had drawn interest from AEW and, following Jade Cargill's departure, there is a sizable hole in the AEW women's roster that May could potentially help to fill. WWE may be less of a possibility after the company recently made cuts to its talent roster following the completion of its merger with UFC. While May has tried out for WWE in the past — even serving as a merchandise model for the company — the timing may be off for it to work at the moment. 

May has spent very long in STARDOM — less than a year — but the founding member of Club Venus certainly made an impact in her short time there, winning the Goddesses of Stardom Championship with her Rose Gold tag team partner Mina Shirakawa in June. However, their reign would be short-lived, ending after only 59 days.
