Big Swole talks about Kenny Omega
Kenny is working behind the scenes with the AEW Women’s division. Her most memorable moment was when Kenny thanked him for what she did at the Diamante feud. It made the other women in the company very comfortable too. Here is what she says about her experience with Kenny:
“I explained to TK that I didn’t want to re-sign because my peace was being disrupted. “If anybody knows me or knows myself, if anything is disrupting your peace, it’s time to let it go. It might be scared or be hard, but it’s time to let it go.
“When Kenny said that, it was the circle coming to an end because Kenny and I would bump heads sometimes throughout my time in AEW. To end it on that note felt good. It felt wonderful to end it at a place where, we didn’t see eye-to-eye, but we were there.”
Big Swole talks about her departure from AEW
Big Swole continued to talk about her departure from AEW. She also believes that it is hard for women to get some ring time at AEW. Here is what she says:
‘’My heart just stopped being in it as the reason why I left AEW. “I felt like there were a lot of things, and I told them in my exit interview, there are a lot of things that need to change. I know fans of the company don’t take criticism well sometimes, certain ones. Know this, this is somebody from the inside, the structure is a little off. It’s fine to be loose, but I like to have a little bit more structure.
I felt like the women shouldn’t have gone through everything they went through just to get on TV or get time. You’re signed to this big company, you should get time. All these men are getting time, but the women weren’t getting anything or you’re not putting people on TV because more people are coming in. Okay, there are more people coming in, but you don’t have enough product for all of these people.’’

Big Swole talks about lack of diversity for blacks in AEW
Swole is open to talk about the lack of diversity blacks have to face in AEW.
“Outside of [lack of structure] their BIGGEST issue, which is diversity. I do not beat around the bush when it comes to diversity and my people. “There is no representation, truly, and when there is, it does not come across in the black community as genuine. At all. I don’t know why everybody is so afraid to accept it or say it, but it’s not a good look.
“What happens is, you have this wonderful company that treats people like family, but there is nobody that looks like me that is represented at the top and in the room with them. They are not helping to necessarily influence decisions, but to explain why certain slang and certain word shouldn’t be said. There is no one else who can explain our culture and experience except for us.”
