Below are a couple of top AEW & WWE news stories of the day.

• Since AEW’s establishment in 2019, its rivalry with WWE has been intense. However, it’s not uncommon for wrestlers from both promotions to cross paths. On the June 11 edition of WWE NXT, AEW star Rebel was reportedly seen backstage.

Rebel, a well-known figure in AEW, has been absent from TV since 2022, despite remaining under contract. Her last match was in August 2022, and while she’s expressed interest in returning to AEW TV, she hasn’t appeared recently.

According to Fightful Select, Rebel’s presence at the NXT tapings is unexplained, but it has certainly sparked curiosity. She has appeared backstage in NXT in the past as well.

Rebel’s status with AEW remains unchanged, as she is still listed on their roster page. This sighting adds an interesting twist to the ongoing WWE-AEW rivalry, leaving fans speculating about her future in wrestling.

• At NXT Battleground 2024, TNA Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace challenged Roxanne Perez for the NXT Women’s Championship in a highly anticipated match. Despite a fierce contest, Perez retained her title, though the match did not unfold as originally planned.

The climax of the match saw Tatum Paxley appear ringside, attempting to steal Grace’s Knockouts Title. However, she was intercepted by Ash By Elegance (fka Dana Brooke in WWE), who thwarted Paxley’s efforts in her WWE TV return. In the chaos that followed, Grace took down both Paxley and Elegance, creating an opening for Perez.

Capitalizing on the distraction, Perez executed her signature move, the “Pop Rox,” securing the victory and retaining her championship.

According to PWInsider, Ash By Elegance’s involvement was a last-minute decision. Initially, the finish was designed to feature only Tatum Paxley. However, discussions led to the inclusion of Elegance, to add an extra layer of surprise to the event.
