• AEW Referee Aubrey Edwards Says She Wouldn’t Be Successful In WWE
AEW referee Aubrey Edwards was a recent guest on Talk Is Jericho. She revealed why she decided to work with AEW instead of WWE.
Below is what she said:
“They kind of stopped calling me. I reached out to them a little later and they said, ‘we’ve got nothing for you’ and then they stopped calling.
Given my personality, I don’t think I would have been successful there. I’m really fortunate AEW came around because this is a much better place for me, for who I am as a person and what I want out of being a performer.
We let our referees be personalities. Tony Khan has said that, ‘our referees have personalities because they are people with personalities.’
At [WWE], they don’t say their names on TV. They are nameless faces, whereas Jim Ross is saying everyone’s name. I don’t know why, I don’t get it, I don’t agree with it, but it’s not my product.”
Edwards worked as a referee for WWE during the Mae Young Classic, but she decided not to stick with them after the tournament.
