Big Swole On Telling Brock Lesnar She Could Whip His A$$ & More!

AEW star Big Swole was recently the guest on AEW Unrestricted. Here are some highlights…..

On how she was introduced to wrestling:

“My former step dad introduced me to wrestling when I was younger. He was like, ‘hey, have you ever seen wrestling before?’ Here I am. I’m four years old, and I’m like, ‘uh, no. What are you talking about?’ He puts on WCW. I think it was Glacier match. I was like, ‘this is awesome. This is great. I can yell at the TV. I get to fight a little bit inside the house and practice my moves on my step brother Deron.'”

“It was right up my alley because I was a huge tomboy already at four. I was hooked. I was flipping channels back and forth through the war. ‘Just simply amazing. I want to do this when I get older. This is great. I want to see it live.'”

On the advice her husband, Cedric Alexander gave her when she decided to become a wrestler:

“I was 22. I was grown and thought I could do whatever I wanted. I just got out of the Air Force and working at Gamestop just as a holiday hire. I was like, ‘you know what? I really want to wrestle,’ and I started dating my boyfriend/now husband, Cedric.”

“I told him, ‘babe, I want to wrestle,’ and he literally sat me down. He was like, ‘OK, if you’re gonna do this Aerial, you need to be a wrestler. I don’t want to hear this whole you’re a women’s wrestler. You’re a female wrestler. No, you’re a wrestler, and you need to have that heart and that drive. You’re gonna do this. There is no quitting for you. You will retire as a wrestler.’ It was amazing. It made me sit back and go through, like, this is what I’m going to do. He kept me on that straight and narrow pretty much.”

On how her opportunity to face Nia Jax came about:

“When I got the phone call from my friend Devon Nicole, she’s like, ‘I need you in Atlanta. Do you want to come with me to be an extra in WWE?’ I was like, ‘yeah, does a bear s–t in the woods? Bro, I’m coming,'” Big Swole recalled. “We get there, and I’m the smallest one out of the both of us. They’re like well, I guess you’re gonna be the one wrestling Nia Jax. I’m like OK, cool.”

On a backstage encounter with Brock Lesnar:

“I was just being me the whole entire day, I’m just clowning with people I know and stuff like that. I see Brock Lesnar, and every time he walks past, all the extras, ‘hello sir. Hello sir. Hello sir.’ Acting like they got some wedgies, acting all stuck up and stuff. I’m like, ‘he’s just a regular person. Stop bothering this man.’

“So the last person bothers him like, ‘thank you so much. I walked up to him like, ‘hey, Brock right?’ He’s like, ‘yeah.’ I was like, ‘I just want to let you know I can whoop your ass.’ The fact that I had the balls to say that because I was like, ‘I’m gonna make him laugh’. Because obviously, he was so pissed off with everybody stopping him 24/7, and he’s like, ‘that’s funny. What’s your name?’ I was like, ‘oh, I’m Aerial.’ He’s like, ‘oh, OK. I’ll remember that. You can whoop my ass?’ I was like, ‘yeah I can whoop you ass.’ He was like, ‘OK. OK,’ and he walks off.”
