Michigan’s Tesha Price Makes AEW Dynamite Debut

Written by Shannon Walsh

Chelsea, Michigan native Tesha Price was billed from her hometown on last night’s AEW Dynamite on TNT. She lost to Abadon in a squash. After the match, Abadon continued the beating until AEW Women’s Champion Hikaru Shida ran out and made the save by briefly knocking Abadon out with a kendo stick shot.

This was the first AEW Dynamite appearance for Price, but she has become somewhat of a regular as of late on AEW Dark on YouTube on Tuesday nights. She’s yet to pick up a win in AEW thus far losing to Diamanté, Shanna, Red Velvet, Leyla Hirsch, and Big Swole. She is not signed by AEW as of this report.

Price was trained by Radiant Rain (Bonnie Maxson) after relocating to Florida. She made her debut in WXW in Minneola, Florida in 2017. She was quickly brought into SHINE for several shows and also accompanied Rain to the ring for her matches. She was acknowledged on commentary by Lenny Leonard and Trevin Adams as Rain’s student/protege.

In Aug. 2018, Price lost by submission to Britt Baker in a WWE Mae Young Classic dark match. She received a WWE tryout in early 2019 (Jade Cargill and Alex Gracia were also in that same tryout class).

Price has competed for RISE and SHIMMER. This past weekend she was part of The Diamond Cup title tournament for Generation Championship Wrestling in Tampa, Florida losing to Queen Aminata (who ended up winning the tournament).
