Aubrey Edwards Discusses Her Initial Reaction To AEW Signing Tay Conti

All Elite Wrestling Women’s division star Tay Conti was the guest on this week’s episode of AEW Unrestricted, where she had an interesting exchange with co-host Aubrey Edwards. The AEW official recalled a previous experience with Conti, which happened in WWE, at a tryout with the company. The meeting led to Edwards being uncertain about Conti being brought in to AEW. Check out their conversation of the topic below:

Aubrey Edwards shares her reaction to AEW signing Conti:

“I don’t know if I ever told you this story or not. But I remember when Kenny told me, ‘Hey, we’re thinking about bringing in Tay.’ I think you and I had an interaction at the previous place when I was trying out that it was kind of like, ‘Man, this girl’s kind of a bitch. Like, what’s up.’ We’ve talked about it further since then. But I told Kenny, I’m like, ‘Dude, I don’t know, she might not be good for the locker room.’ Then, after that first day, you’re around, I texted him and said, ‘We need her. Like, she’s good energy. She’s a solid worker, like, she will be a great addition to our team.’ So I’m really glad that I got to know you a little bit more in our setting, because I feel like it’s a good place for people to be themselves and kind of demonstrate who they really are as people, right? You’re not walking around on eggshells. You, you get to be you. So, thank you for being you.”

Conti says she happier now that she is in AEW:

“Thank you. Yeah, honestly, I kind of agree. Like, I was not happy at my previous job. So I was not really being myself. There was a lot of stress. So that was super hard. That’s when I was like, You know what, that’s not me. I gotta, I gotta be out of here, I became a person that I am not, you know? So I feel like now I have a better relationship with everybody. I can be myself.”
