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 all the racist threats she has received after calling out Tony Khan.
Swole previously 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 Swole World podcast, Big Swole revealed all the racist messages and threats she has received after Swole called out Tony Khan. She stated that those comments are unbecoming of one as a person.
“I’m gonna call a spade a spade. You’re calling me a n*gger, you’re calling me a n*gger. You’re saying, ‘kill the n*ggers’. Excuse my language, you guys. But that’s – yeah, that’s how serious it is.
“It is so unbecoming of you as a person. It speaks volumes to your character, to your merit, to your lack thereof that you would have to stoop so low because of a disagreement about wrestling. About wrestling? Is it that important to you that you would have to come at me about the color of my skin?”
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.
