AEW broadcaster Dasha Gonzalez, formerly known as Dasha Fuentes in WWE, will be wrestling as part of the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup. Dasha was on-hand for the latest drawing of partners for the tournament when it was revealed that she will be in the tournament herself.
The 32-year-old was originally signed to NXT as a wrestler in 2014 but transitioned to broadcasting following a knee injury.
Dasha was introducing the latest drawing for the tournament when Madusa came out to inform her she will be in the tournament. Her teammate will be Rachael Ellering, who will also be making her AEW debut in the tournament. They will face the team of Ivelisse and Diamante tonight on the show.
