“I always learned a lot from them”

AEW star Tay Melo has reflected on working alongside KAIRI and IYO SKY during her time in WWE.

Melo, formerly known as Tay Conti, is currently signed to AEW, where she competes as a member of the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Speaking recently with Dark Puroresu Flowsion, Melo discussed her goal of competing in Japan. She also looked back on briefly working with Meiko Satomura in NXT.

“Going to Japan has been a dream for a long time, even before wrestling. I know that I’ll learn a lot and it can change my career for better, I remember training with Meiko Satomura for a little bit in NXT, I asked her to help me with my kicks and the way she teaches, the way she moves is everything, I just loved it. I had the pleasure to work with KAIRI, Io Shirai (IYO SKY), and Shida and man I always learned a lot from them and had so much fun, it’s truly the style I love and feel comfortable. I’m super open to going to Japan, I really want to go, I’m waiting for the opportunity,” said Tay Melo.

Courtesy of AEW’s working relationship with NJPW, numerous male superstars have been able to compete in Japan. Recently, both Darby Allin and Sting also appeared for Pro Wrestling NOAH, teaming up with The Great Muta.

Meanwhile, former AEW World Women’s Champion Thunder Rosa has previously competed against Miyu Yamashita. It was a non-title match at the TJPW Summer Sun Princess event.
