Skye Blue received her All Elite graphic in April.
In April of 2021, Skye Blue made her debut for All Elite Wrestling on an episode of Dark: Elevation against Britt Baker. She would return to the promotion later that year for All Out week in Illinois where she is billed from.
Prior to the April 7th, 2023 episode of Rampage, Tony Khan announced that Skye is officially a member of the company’s roster and she received her All Elite graphic.
She was invited onto AEW Unrestricted and spoke about officially signing. She mentioned that it was at All Out 2021 that she first ‘got signed’. In September 2022, Fightful Select reported that Skye had been under an agreement.
I cried a lot (when I got the All Elite graphic), because I remember my first extra work was the pandemic days in Jacksonville and I remember being terrified. I remember being an extra in that crowd shaking and I was actually — my first day of extra work was Queen Aminata’s first day of extra work too (which) was really freaking awesome. But I remember sitting there and we’re like, ‘Crap, that’s gonna be us. We’re sitting in the crowd. We’re gonna have to go get in that ring’ and I remember they told me my first match was against Britt (Baker). I was like, oh! It’s just Britt Baker and then this is Dustin Rhodes. I wasn’t back until the All Out that I got signed and then to see it go from I was literally — I remember cheering in the crowd to like 2 AM or whatever it was to getting the graphic and being able to — I FaceTimed my mom, because C.D. (Christopher Daniels) had told me, he’s like, ‘Hey, yeah, they wanna put the graphic out today.’ I just texted her like, ‘Hey, just be prepared for something’ and she’s like, ‘What the hell does that mean?’ She’s spamming my phone while I was in the makeup chair so I FaceTimed her and I just sent her the picture of the graphic because Twitter put it out first and she was crying, screaming on the phone and it made me cry. I’m sitting in the makeup chair, I’m trying not to cry and I put makeup on my face, I’m gonna ruin it. Because I never thought I was gonna make it to that point because I wanted to do this for so long and AEW has been the dream company since I was running around on the indies so it was the fact that he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s for real,’ I was like, oh, it’s actually real. Like what?
Ahead of the 5/17 Dynamite, Skye was in action in a dark match and tagged with Willow Nightingale and the returning Abadon.
