AEW Star Gets Name Change

This AEW wrestler is now being billed as something new...

It looks like All Elite Wrestling has officially changed Anna Jay's ring name.

The Jericho Appreciation Society member was billed as "Anna Jay A.S." for this week's episode of AEW Dark, on which she worked a straightforward squash against Megan Meyers.

This was only halfway reflected on Dark, however. Ring announcer Justin Roberts still referred to Anna as simply "Anna Jay", as did the commentary team. The up-and-comer's lower third, however, read "Anna Jay A.S." Roberts and the commentators not using the new ring name is likely a consequence of pretaping, however.


Last week's episode of Dynamite saw Jay involved in a backstage segment with stablemates Angelo Parker and Matt Menard, during which she called herself "Anna Jay A.S.", having seemingly rebranded in line with her new affiliation. AEW's official online roster listing still has her down as "Anna Jay."

Jay A.S. has been with AEW since entering during the pandemic-induced empty arena era in April 2020. Initially working as an enhancement talent, she soon transitioned to a more regular role, joining the Dark Order in June. She proceeded as a babyface thereafter, forging an alliance with Tay Conti. This was then reprised as Jay A.S. surprising turned heel this July, attacking Ruby Soho to join the Jericho Appreciation Society.
