Big Swole and AEW parted ways last year after she was largely underutilized by the company. While many believed it was due to her suffering from Chron’s Disease, the reality is that her contract had simply run out. It seems she opened up about Tony Khan’s response as well.

Swole recently called out AEW for their lack of diversity and pointed out differences in how WWE presents their Black stars, especially Big E and Bianca Belair.

AEW President Tony Khan caused a lot of controversy after he responded to Big Swole’s callout by taking it personally. TK also said he let Swole’s contract expire because she wasn’t good enough. This was seen as a horrible move on Tony Khan’s part and it even made Lio Rush furious.

While speaking on her Call In Show podcast, Big Swole opened up about her reaction to Tony Khan’s response to her criticism of AEW. Swole admitted she was disappointed and embarrassed by Tony Khan’s response.

“When I read the TK tweet, it was, not necessarily sent to me, but I got a text message saying, ‘Do not respond to him, it’s not worth it.’ At that time, I was already a little zooted because it was about to be New Year’s. I looked at it and I was like, ‘Wow, this is a lot.

Overall, I’m very disappointed. A person with that pedigree should know how to respond in a way that doesn’t come off in the most negative way possible,” she continued.

I was very disappointed. Embarrassed, even. Embarrassed for the people that are there. I really couldn’t believe it. Did he even listen to the podcast? Obviously not because it went completely off the rails. You went completely to counting brown people. If was truly about counting brown people, I would be naming certain demographics.”

Even Jim Cornette took Tony Khan’s side in the ongoing diversity controversy. It remains to be seen what is next in store for Big Swole now that she has a lot of fan following due to the controversy.
