During night two of Fyter Fest, Nyla Rose announced that she had a manager, but did not reveal their identity

Nyla Rose is a former champion and desperately wants to regain her title. She addressed current AEW Women’s Champion, Hikaru Shida directly by saying she’ll be AEW Women’s champion again “very soon”.

Why would someone like “The Native Beast” need a manager? Nyla said that all of the wrestlers with managers were champions. In order to regain her championship, she feels a manager is needed. While she makes a valid point, Shawn Spears has a manager and has never held a title.

Having a manager could be beneficial for Nyla. She has a very commanding presence and is good on the mic. She doesn’t need a mouthpiece, but an adviser could be to her benefit. Someone in this role should be like Arn Anderson is for Cody; a playmaker. Her manager should help her devise a game plan for each opponent. That manager should know her opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.

In Nyla’s case, this person could be someone like Jake Roberts who isn’t afraid to get involved in order to help their client win.

Since her announcement, fans have been wondering who Nyla’s manager will be.

Let’s dive in to some of the possibilities.

Awesome Kong

AEW fans haven’t seen Awesome Kong since the February 4th episode of Dark. An angry Kong lashed out at Mel for losing. This angered Luther, who held her in place while Mel hurt her. Kong was allegedly injured when she went crashing through a barrier. (In real life, she had been filming the final season of GLOW)

Debuting as Nyla’s manager would be the perfect way to bring her back to TV. Kong brings years of in-ring experience to the table. Being on GLOW, she has experience in front of a camera without fans. At Starrcast last year, Brandi Rhodes announced that Kong was hired as a female coach.

All of this expertise could give Nyla an advantage over some of the other women in the division.

Kong carries herself in a similar way to Nyla: confident, brooding, and commanding. She has a killer instinct that matches Nyla’s. She would be an excellent mentor for the former champ. This alliance might be the edge that Nyla needs in order to become a two-time women’s champion.


We saw Jazz make her AEW debut in the Casino Battle Royale at All Out last year. It was a nice surprise for wrestling fans.

Jazz has wrestled for ECW, WWF/WWE, NWA and on the indies. In WWE, she was a two-time champion. In 2016, Jazz became NWA World Women’s champion. She successfully defended her title against Penelope Ford at the company’s 70th Anniversary show.

In August 2019, Jazz had to relinquish the title due to medical and personal reasons. This ended a 948-day title reign. You read that right. It’s astounding, isn’t it?

Over the decades, Jazz has wrestled some of the top women across promotions. As a champion several times over, Jazz has the experience and expertise to guide Nyla back to another title reign.

Vickie Guerrero

Vickie Guerrero has made several appearances in AEW. She did commentary on Dark last December. As seen above, she was part of the Inner Circle Pep Rally in May. She also been ringside for several shows.

Guerrero has worn so many hats since officially joining the wrestling world. She has been a manager, a General Manager, and a competitor. Being a manager and a GM gives her an edge over Jazz and Awesome Kong. That unique experience could help Nyla in so many ways.

On June 26, Guerrero tweeted that she had parted ways with WWE. Previously, she had stated that WWE was unhappy with her involvement with their rival and banned Superstars from appearing on her podcast.

Could this be foreshadowing? On July 5th, Guerrero retweeted Nyla referencing her match on night two of Fyter Fest.

Whomever Nyla Rose chooses, it will be interesting to see. She needs someone that can elevate her without overshadowing her. Can she quickly find success that gets her another title shot? How will having a manager affect the rest of the women’s division?
