During a recent interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, AEW star Ruby Soho expressed how thrilled she is that a second women’s singles championship is on it’s way to TNT in the form of the TBS women’s title. Soho has her sights set on being the first woman to hold the gold.

“I was thrilled. It’s just crazy to me that I’ve been here for such a short period of time and so many milestones have already happened, which just shows how quick and fast the growth of this company is happening and how seriously all of us are taking pride in our work and representing AEW. It made me even more proud to be part of the team to kinda make history as one of the first companies to have a title like this one,” Ruby said. “I think that the importance that has been placed on the tournament itself and how seriously all of us are taking it, the match-ups are absolutely amazing. It’s really showing how important this title is to our division as a whole.

“We all now have something else to fight for and it’s going to create even more amazing match-ups that have so much more at stake,” she continued. “And now, with this being part of history, all of us want to be part of history, so we all want to be the first. Everybody wants to be the first because no one ever forgets the first. So much is at stake and so much is riding on this, which is bringing out the absolute most amazing fight that we all have. We’re reaching deep down as much as we can because we want to be the champion, and I think it’s really amazing what AEW is doing. It’s making milestones, not only in the company itself, but in the women’s industry as well.”

During her time in both WWE NXT and WWE’s main roster, Ruby never once held a singles title despite being with the company since 2016. She sees this new opportunity as a way to amend for all of those missed chances of the past.

“It would mean everything. It would be validation first for the last 11 years of my career. It’s not just validation since I’ve been here, it’s been validation since my previous time with WWE, my previous time in the independents working for 10 bucks and driving 12 hours, and cars breaking down, and things like that. I have never held a title on national television in the time span that I’ve been a part of, and I really feel this is something. Making history and being the first, and representing the title with honor, and fighting tooth and nail, like, really defend it, would mean the world to me and I am going to do absolutely everything that I can to be that first champion.”
