10 AEW Stars Set For A Big Push Following All Out 2021

9. Anna Jay

Anna Jay Tay Conti

Anna Jay returned at the more optimistic end of her anticipated recovery window, blasting back from a shoulder surgery that could have shelved her for up to a year in ust over six months. Saving tag partner Tay Conti from The Bunny and Penelope Ford on the 1 September Dynamite, she was subsequently confirmed for All Out's Casino Battle Royale, eliminating Bunny before being thrown out by Ford.

TayJay vs. Bunny and Ford seems like the next logical destination. Conti eliminated Penelope from the match too, and the two sides' interactions were largely focused on each other. They'll face the heels in the near future, win, and move on.

Both Conti and Jay will be huge parts of the women's division's future. They're laced with potential and while both are a few years from peaking, each is currently performing several levels beyond their experience. Jay looks particularly well-suited to a push at the moment, given Tay's recent dalliances in and around the title scene, and there's an interesting role for her to play in the Dark Order's in-fighting storyline too. She could be the glue that binds the bickering faction back together.
