Leila Grey may not have been given the X Is #AllElite Twitter treatment typically rolled out for the company's new signings yet, but the Baddies member has signed with the promotion.

Grey confirmed as much during a recent interview for Dye Sporting Network. Having first landed AEW work in March 2021, she stated that she was signed by America's number two promotion in July (h/t Wrestling Inc.):-

"Well, AEW has been fantastic. Like, I was working with them for probably like a year and a half doing the dark matches. I started in March of 2021. This past Summer, in July, I was signed. Now, I'm part of The Baddies alongside the TBS Champion, Jade Cargill — you already know — and Kiera Hogan, Red Velvet, when she comes back; she's injured right now."

The Ohio Valley Wrestling regular has been affiliated with The Baddies since shortly after facing Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship on AEW Dynamite's 29 June episode. Now, she is seen alongside Cargill and Kiera Hogan on television most weeks, while Red Velvet is sidelined through injury.


Pre-Baddies, Leila worked a run of 15 squash matches for the promotion, competing against the likes of Penelope Ford, Nyla Rose, and Thunder Rosa primarily for Dark and Dark: Elevation. Her first AEW bout was a 3 March 2021 defeat to Tay Melo.

In landing a full-time AEW deal, Leila follows in the footsteps of Powerhouse Hobbs, The Acclaimed, and Daniel Garcia who have become #AllElite regulars after debuting as enhancement talents.
