Willow Nightingale has signed with AEW officially while others have also joined the company even though no announcement was made on social media.
It was announced on the October 21st live episode of AEW Rampage that Willow Nightingale is All Elite, which means she has signed a contract with AEW. The announcement was made by announcer Tony Schiavone after Willow won a match against Leyla Grey. Willow commented on Twitter about it.
I’m going to show this to my parents and they’re gonna be so happy
Thanks for the love everyone💖 https://t.co/QiaOmXI491

Willow also commented in another tweet: “I didn’t even see that it was on that giant screen right behind me. Sometimes life is a dream.”
It was reported by Fightful Select that it was known that Willow had signed with AEW although it wasn’t confirmed if it was a tiered or full-time deal. When Willow recently finished up with MLW, that company believed that meant she had signed a full-time deal with another company.
The Fightful report noted that the reaction to Willow signing full-time was very positive. Prior to working for AEW, Willow also worked shows for Ring of Honor, which is now owned by AEW’s Owner Tony Khan.
In addition to Willow, AEW has recently signed several wrestlers to full-time deals although they haven’t shared an “All Elite” graphic for them. One of those wrestlers is Ari Daivari, who is part of the Trustbusters group. Ari was on Rampage as well and lost a match in his attempt to win the FTW Title from Hook.
Now that she’s a full-time member of the AEW roster, Willow will try to go after the TBS Champion Jade Cargill or perhaps the Interim AEW Women’s Champion Toni Storm, who recently took a shot at AEW WOmen’s Thunder Rosa.
