Maki Itoh recently made her All Elite Wrestling debut in the AEW Women's World Championship Eliminator Tournament and went one on one with Ryo Mizunami in the first round. Itoh ultimately came up short in the match, but she generated a lot of buzz in the run-up to the tournament and many expected her to win the Japan bracket.
The Tokyo Joshi Pro-Wrestling star was recently interviewed by Fightful Select and said she is open to working more with AEW in the future. She even has an idea about what she would do and mentioned she would be interested in joining Dark Order if they paid her.
Itoh recently interacted with current Dark Order member John Silver on Twitter and replied, "Hey simp" after he asked her what was up.
Itoh also told Fightful that Tokyo Joshi Pro officials contacted her about the AEW tournament and she immediately got in touch with her parents to tell them. Her time in J-pop group LinQ also helped her prepare for the performance side of pro wrestling.
