The Reason AEW Stopped Using Rebel Reported

AEW initially recruited Rebel for a backstage hair and makeup role but would end up being used on-screen alongside Dr. Britt Baker DMD, in a successful partnership. However, in recent weeks Rebel has been absent from Baker’s side, and now the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported she was dropped due to Baker now being a babyface and the act no longer working with that dynamic.

Rebel is no longer being used. We were told that with Baker and Hayter as babyfaces now that it was felt she didn’t work as part of that act at this point in time.

Rebel began wrestling for OVW in 2014 before debuting for TNA as part of the Menagerie faction alongside Mike Knox, Crazzy Steve, and Rob Terry. In 2019 she’d wrestled on NXT, teaming with Amber Nova in a tag team loss to Kairi Sane and Io Shirai, but it didn’t result in a contract offer from WWE. Therefore when she began an on-screen talent for AEW, many were surprised.
