As they say, all good things must come to an end, Maki Itoh will also go back to Japan, after enticing fans in the US. We won’t see her on AEW programming at least for a few months. But before leaving, Itoh shared a message for her fans on Twitter.

Itoh shared how everyone was kind and happy, despite her speaking in broken English. She asked her fans if they want to see her again and also noted that there is no update on when she will come back. Although, the young Joshi hopes to meet everyone again in the near future.


Maki Itoh made her AEW debut as part of the Japanese bracket in the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator tournament. Her beauty quickly enticed fans as they got hooked on the 25-year-old.

Itoh lost in the first round of the tournament, but she became the talk of the town. AEW has done an excellent job of striking when the iron is hot, and they did just that with Itoh as well. They saw the demand for Itoh and got her to the United States.


The former International Princess Champion made her AEW PPV debut, replacing Rebel as Dr. Britt Baker’s partner against Thunder Rosa and Riho. That night, she added more fans to her list with over-the-top character work before, during, and after the match. She then appeared on Being the Elite with the Dark Order and was evidently seen having a gala time.

Maki Itoh definitely has fan approval. Plus, she’s entertaining as hell inside and outside the ring. We hope to see her back in AEW soon. The company could definitely use her charm to make fans start talking about their otherwise lackluster women’s division.
