Priscilla Kelly has made a big name for herself in the independent scene. Between controversial spots and being an advocate to intergender wrestling, she is one to watch. She recently spoke to Wrestling Inc. on their WINCLY podcast. During the podcast, she was questioned about her husband Darby Allin being with AEW and what that means for her future.
A common thought amongst fans is that wrestling couples need to be together and in the same promotion. Just as with any other job, it isn’t a necessity to work with your spouse or significant other. Kelly combats against the thought of working in the same promotion as her husband by saying the following:
“Everyone assumes that I’m gonna be this big AEW reveal. But the thing is with wrestling couples is that people don’t have to always assume that when one person is going somewhere that the other person will follow,” stated Kelly. “I’m finding my own success independently. I’m going overseas to England for a month in September and there’s no talks of me going to AEW with Darby. We’re both finding our own success in our own ways.”
As far as a possibility in WWE, Kelly hasn’t ruled out being a part of that promotion. She was featured in their second Mae Young Classic tournament. She faced Deonna Purrazzo in a losing effort in the first round. She had the following to say if WWE were to reach out to her again in the future:
“If WWE was interested and reached out, I would definitely give it a shot,” said Kelly. “I’m really just taking everything that feels the best for me. I’m having fun with it and getting to see the world and just be happy with what I’m doing. If something makes me happy, then I’m going to do it.”
The podcast also featured her relationship with Allin, and her most recent intergender match against Jake Atlas.
Kelly will be present for the upcoming indie women’s supershow, The Summit. As previously reported, The Summit will involve four major indie women promotions and will take place during WWE’s SummerSlam weekend on Aug. 10.
