Dark bringing light to the Dead
The newest addition to the AEW Women’s roster is none other than the dead girl Abadon. Her appearance is nothing short of terrifying. With a look that could haunt anyone that stares too long; this soul eater is more than just a scary face. Her debut in AEW came on March 4th, 2020 against Hikaru Shida on AEW DARK. Luckily enough for her, she was able to make her debut in front of one of the last live crowds that the promotion has seen.
Feeling Scared? You are not alone…
As soon as she made her entrance, she had the whole arena spooked. She crawls to the ring from the Black Hills, weighing in at 1000 Lost Souls, and at a height of 5-foot Dead. Abadon gave the viewers in the arena and at home a taste of her in-ring style. She even got a taste of Hikaru Shida after she bit her finger at the beginning of the match. She did end up losing that match but was able to showcase her supernatural abilities.
High praise from Omega
Abadon also received praise from one of All Elite Wrestling’s Executive Vice Presidents, Kenny Omega. When The Cleaner takes the time to share his approval of talent, it certainly brings a vote of confidence that will make many pay more attention.
Abadon was fantastic. Can’t wait for folks to check out her match on #AEWDark

Omega was recently quoted in an interview talking about the signing of Abadon. He explains the uniqueness of her character, and talks about his personal interest in her development:
“When I see a character like Abadon…I see someone who’s committed themselves 100% to a character that appeals to people that are interesting, aside from wrestling. I know that that’s like a real diamond in the rough and something that I want to see develop something that I want to nurture…Abadon checks a lot of real cool boxes and I’m super excited to see her development.”
Omega continues to explain that this character works because of the performer creating it themselves:
“For Abadon, for that character to be her, that is something that she wants to do. That is something that she feels comfortable in her own skin doing. You see the commitment behind the performance and that is so important.”
Wrestler of the week
Her second appearance came on AEW Dynamite on June 17th, 2020. Abadon was set to face another newly acquired talent Anna Jay. The stage was set to make Anna Jay seem like the rising star in the match. They provided her with a pre-match vignette. However, Abadon once again came crawling to the ring like she had just survived an exorcism attempt. In quick fashion, Abadon took the soul of Anna Jay proving that she is the true Reaper in the AEW Women’s division. The company immediately announced the signing of Abadon after her destruction of Anna Jay.
The company shortly followed up and announced that Abadon had been named the Wrestler of the week. This was a huge accomplishment for someone making their Dynamite debut. Thus continuing to show the audience that Abadon is certainly one to pay attention to.
Abadon | Making An Immediate Impact
Thee story of Abadon is brief. She has only been wrestling for a little over a year now at Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Pro Wrestling. Within that short amount of time, she has been their Lockettes Champion on two separate occasions.
One of those victories coming against Simone Lockhart in a grueling 17-minute Dog Collar Match. The technique and abilities of a performer that’s only been wrestling for over a year are unfathomable. This match is a great showcase of Abadon’s in-ring ability, but also her amazing character work. Her style is slow and methodical but can change the pace in an instant with her patented Rana DDT.
Most of Abadon’s social media is filled with vile and unsettling demonic videos of herself. However, she does take the time to showcase her favorite matches. This one coming against Bentley Powell. This match is another example of Abadon continuing to show off her commitment to her character. From her entrance to her exit, there isn’t a second where she isn’t the dead girl. It’s refreshing to see such devotion from a performer bell to bell.
Abadon | The Dead Woman Has Risen
This character demands attention. In a short amount of time Abadon has created something different from her peers. The polished personas of many female wrestlers pales in comparison to this sinister sister. AEW seems to have taken a serious interest in her, making her an official member of the roster. Her supernatural characteristics have already sent waves through the AEW fanbase, and with only a year of training under her belt, she seems to set for a storied career.
