The wrestling world has changed for the better. Nowadays, female stars express their first step into motherhood during shows. Becky Lynch did it in the WWE on an episode of RAW in 2020. Now, the same has happened on Tony Khan’s AEW. Ruby Soho and her partner, Angelo Parker, announced their first child on a taped segment.

However, this has led fans to wonder if this will be used in a storyline moving forward. When Lynch announced it, she had vacated the WWE Women’s title to Asuka. Here is all you need to know.

However, it may become a part of something once Soho takes her leave.

Fans last saw Soho in action on February 9, on a Rampage episode. She tagged with Saraya against Willow Nightingale and Kris Statlander. However, she abandoned Saraya in the middle of the match. Fans then congratulated the happy couple on social media. Nevertheless, what does this mean for their futures in Tony Khan’s promotion?
