Tay Melo Addresses In-Ring Return After A Year Away

Tay Melo looks to be stepping back into the ring for the first time in a year.

The AEW star has been out of action since May 2023, when she and her husband Sammy Guevara announced they were pregnant. Melo gave birth to a baby girl late last year, and looks to be training for a return to the ring based on recent social media posts.

The Brazilian posted a video of herself training in an AEW ring on Instagram. The clip showed Tay Melo running the ropes, before practising her forward and backwards roles. She looked a natural in the ring, and didn’t miss a step after a year away.

She posted the video with a caption. It read, “I’m unstoppable today. Step by step & respecting my limits”, which could mean her first match back could be some ways away still.

Tay Melo also posted about getting back in the ring on her Twitter account. She revealed how she still feels weak and frustrated after childbirth, but is happy to be back in the ring again.

However, the former Tay Conti also said that “it’s a long way to go”, so don’t expect to see her wrestling in AEW any time soon.

“So happy to be able to be in the ring again. With a lot of patience I’ll get ready to be back, it’s a whole new body & I still feel so week inside.. I got frustrated a couple times, had to hold my tears and keep going. My body was my baby’s home for 40 weeks and now I’ll get stronger not just for me but for her too. It’s a long way to go but I’m closer than yesterday “
