Tay Melo Provides Timeline On Her Return To The Ring

Tay Melo gave birth six months ago to an 8.4lb daughter named Luna, and since then, both she and her husband, Sammy Guevara, have been keeping fans up to date via social media on their adorable baby’s progress. Still, fans have been wondering when the Brazilian star would be returning to the ring, and having recently shared a video of her running the ropes, she has now confirmed on X that it will be a couple more months before she is officially cleared. 

Prior to beginning her professional wrestling career, Melo was a top-level athlete, holding a black belt in judo and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Her athletic prowess subsequently led her to participate in trials for the Brazilian Olympic team, and afterward, she signed with WWE, where she spent four years honing her skills in the ring.

Yet despite earning high praise for her performances by many, the company released her as part of their mass budget cuts in 2020. However, this was ultimately a blessing in disguise as it paved the way for her to join AEW, where she met her husband and started a family.
