Missing AEW Star Finally Training For Return

Sammy Guevara Tay Melo AEW

One AEW star has been missing from AEW for well over a year but now they’ve confirmed they’re working towards their return to the ring.

The last time AEW fans saw Tay Melo in the ring was all the way back in January 2023 when she teamed with her then-Jericho Appreciation Society partner Anna Jay in a loss against Ruby Soho and Willow Nightingale in a wild Street Fight.

In March, Melo took to the ring on an independent show with her husband Sammy Guevara but a back injury put her out of action before she announced she was pregnant. Tay Melo and Sammy Guevara welcomed their first child together in November 2023. While Guevara has been back in AEW before being suspended by the company, Melo remains out of action but that could be set to change.

Tay Melo Begins Working For AEW Return

Taking to social media, Tay Melo confirmed that she’s been working out in the ring in preparation for a return to AEW but cautions that she has a long way to go:

So happy to be able to be in the ring again. With a lot of patience I’ll get ready to be back, it’s a whole new body & I still feel so week inside.. I got frustrated a couple times, had to hold my tears and keep going. My body was my baby’s home for 40 weeks and now I’ll get stronger not just for me but for her too. It’s a long way to go but I’m closer than yesterday

Tay Melo had previously been part of WWE before starting in AEW but is yet to win gold in her new home. She has held the AAA Mixed Tag Team Championship with Sammy Guevara before they vacated the gold in late 2022.
