Chicago’s Skye Blue has quickly become of the hottest new babyfaces in AEW, challenging for the AEW Women’s title just two years after her debut.
She won on her debut match in AEW Collision, pinning Outcast Ruby Soho with her finishing move “Code Blue”, following a fantastic tag team match.
Skye Blue has come on leaps and bounds since her AEW debut in 2021, even though that match was against one of AEW’s biggest female stars of all time.
Skye Blue’s AEW Debut
Sky Blue’s first match in AEW was against Britt Baker on the fifth episode of AEW Dark: Elevation.
She was only 21 at the time, making her one of the youngest wrestlers ever to compete in AEW. However, Skye Blue made her pro-wrestling debut in 2017, when she was just 17 years of age.
The show took place in Daily’s Place in Jacksonville Florida, on April 7th, 2021. The event had 17 matches on the card, with the main event being Best Friends vs Cezar Bonini & Ryan Nemeth.
Skye Blue made her AEW debut in the middle of the card of Dark: Elevation. She faced off with Britt Baker in one of the biggest matches of her career at that point.
However, it was a much different Skye Blue at this point. She did not have her trademark blue hair that she employs now, and her attire had a red and black color scheme to it.
The Chicago native got some good offense in on Britt Baker, but the match was simply to put Britt over and build up her win/loss record. Baker beat Skye Blue in a short four-minute match, pinning her following a Beach Break/Curb Stomp combination to pick up the win.
After her debut, Skye Blue continued to wrestle on AEW shows. She was eventually signed to AEW in April 2023, and has since become a big part of the AEW Women’s Division.
