The All Elite Wrestling women’s division is full of talented stars, including Tay Melo, formerly known as Tay Conti in WWE. She often appears in AEW’s Dynamite, Rampage, and the promotion’s bigger shows.
On social media, she continues to share various photos and videos from her in-ring performances and life away from the ring.
Her unique content often includes modeling, discussing products she likes, traveling, working out, and spending time with her husband, professional wrestler Sammy Guevara.
Most recently, Tay took to Instagram to share a throwback bikini photo. The Brazilian wrestling star wore a two-piece hot pink swimsuit as she gave a sideways pose, revealing her back and curves.
Tay’s blond hair cascaded down her back in the image, and she wore a thick bracelet on her arm. She may have also worn hoop earrings, with one peeking out from under her hair.
The 5-foot-6 wrestling star’s pose reveals a tattoo featuring a bird on the back of her lower right leg. It’s one of several she has, as reports arrived in May that she got a new tattoo on her ankle.
“Old but gold .. do I need a new bikini photoshoot?! 😋,” Tay asked her fans and followers in a caption to receive their feedback.
Fans and followers react to Tay’s bikini throwback
Tay’s throwback bikini post arrived on Wednesday afternoon ahead of another episode of AEW Dynamite. It quickly racked up over 22,000 Likes and 200-plus comments, with many fans giving their approval of more pics featuring Tay Melo in a bikini.
“Would love to see a new bikini photoshoot,” one fan wrote in the comments.
“I don’t think anyone would object,” one fan commented in reaction to Tay’s question.
Another fan suggested Tay release an exclusive calendar to showcase more of her stunning bikini images year-round.
Tay has shared many bikini photos on her IG page over the months. In addition to bikinis, Tay models workout gear, swimsuits, and of course, her various ring gear or ringside outfits.
In one such post, the blonde bombshell posed in the gym wearing a pair of skintight red spandex leggings with a black t-shirt. The wrestler was turned slightly away from the camera but still managed to show a beautiful big smile and held up two fingers.
She captioned the post with a red heart emoji and a hello, “hi friends.”
Tay looked amazing in the photo, and her fans quickly gave the post over 50,000 likes.
In another post from this summer, Tay posed while lying on the beach in a white two-piece swimsuit. The two parts of the unusual barely-there bikini were held together with two metal straps.
In the pic, Tay lay on a sandy beach with her feet being lapped by the waves. She placed one hand on her knee and gave the camera a sultry stare.
Tay doesn’t go in for long wordy captions and for this one, she simply wrote, “Heeeeeeey.”
In a departure from her usual posts two weeks ago, Tay posted pics from her wedding in August 2022 to Sammy Guevara. It was the cute couple’s one-month anniversary, and Tay wrote in her caption, “One month down, forever to go ❤️”
Tay posted a series of ten photos of herself and Sammy celebrating their wedding. The pair both looked fantastic dressed in white as they partied the day away with champagne, dancing, kissing, and laughing.
Tay and husband continue to shine as champions
Following her release from WWE last year, Tay has moved on to AEW, where she’s teamed with her husband Sammy as part of the Jericho Appreciation Society (JAS). The husband-wife duo also works with Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA), a Mexico-based promotion partnered with AEW.
Tay and Sammy captured the AAA Mixed Tag Team Championship this past April at Triplemanía XXX: Monterrey. Earlier this month, they defended the championship at AEW’s All Out event in Chicago, Illinois.
The couple bested Ruby Soho and Ortiz in the opener for the event’s pre-show, winning via pinfall. However, some fans criticized Tay and Sammy for their role in injuring one of their opponents during the match.
More recently, Tay appeared ringside to support her husband in a huge match on AEW Rampage. Sammy attempted to defeat Jon Moxley and move on to the AEW World Championship tournament finals.
Sammy had his wife Tay and their JAS ally Anna Jay at ringside, doing their best to help him win. However, Moxley ultimately overcame Sammy’s in-ring moves and the women’s interference to win the match.
