In a recent interview as part of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, All Elite Wrestling’s Skye Blue discussed several topics, including her character change on AEW television.
“I did not expect it, like at all, I remember me and Willow were talking about just wanting to tag and wanting to just be a women’s tag team and whatever, and try to make a tag division, because there’s not a lot of women’s tags here yet, so we were like, oh we can do that.
They presented the idea like, hey you’re going to get misted and I was like, does that mean I get to be spooky, and they were like yeah, have you ever been a heel, and I was like no, I always wanted to be heel on the indies and everybody was like no, you’re too much like a cute little babyface, come on guys, I can be mean.
I want to challenge myself, I want to learn how to be a heel, I want to learn. I was like, I want to learn every aspect of wrestling, I want to do as much of it as I can, so I was super excited, and I feel like me and Julia could be a really cool tag team, I feel like we kind of look like, not like sisters, but the blonde brunette duo and we’re both super young.”
