All Elite Wrestling’s women’s division has seen Tay Conti rise to prominence since she joined the promotion in Summer 2020. The Brazilian-born jiu-jitsu star has competed in high-profile AEW battles, most notably for the NWA and AEW Women’s Championships.
Conti came up short in both challenges, but she intends to make up for it in 2022 by going all out.
“Gold. I want gold, for sure,” Conti told Highspots regarding her 2022 goals. “I want it all. I want my rematch against Britt and I wanna get Jade. Jade’s getting too comfortable. It’s been kind of like, a good path for her. But, you know, when she meets me in the ring, it’s over for her, baby.”
TBS Champion Jade Cargill and WWE’s Asuka are two more women Conti hopes to face in the ring someday.
“I really want to wrestle Asuka one day. She’s one of my favorites,” Tay Conti said. “I really want to wrestle her. But, if we can talk about AEW, I would say, I really wanna have Serena Deeb too. Because she’s going crazy right now. Yeah, I wrestled her once, but I really need a rematch against her. So, I’m ready for it.”
In January 2021, Conti faced The Professor for the NWA Women’s Championship when she wrestled Deeb. As previously said, Conti has lost both of her championship bouts, but she cherishes the memories she has of them.
“I would say like, my match against Britt [at AEW Full Gear 2021] for the title was really a special one,” Tay Conti said. “I was super nervous. I was trying to come up with like, a different entrance, hair make-up. Yeah, I was trying to present myself, you know, a little like, different. So I really like it. That was a really special match. And Britt was like, amazing to work within the ring. I want my rematch to kick her a– again. But, yeah, that was a really special one. And I had my first moonsault. Sammy [Guevara] helped me a lot.”
While Conti is most happy with her pay-per-view battle with AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker, she also mentioned her victories against Deeb and Hikaru Shida.
“I would say my match against Serena, I really liked that too. She’s one of the best in the game. I could wrestle her every day,” Tay Conti said. “I want a street fight against Serena. It would be amazing. And my match against Shida. Maybe because I’m like, a big fan of Japanese style, my match against her was like, one of my favorites for sure.”
