Athena Explains Why She Wanted To Leave WWE For AEW

During an interview on the “Complex Unsanctioned” podcast, AEW star Athena explained why she wanted to leave WWE for AEW.

“When you look at the AEW PPVs and you’re seeing all of my friends that I used to roll with on the indies and they’re finally getting the platform that they deserve and it’s just like, ‘Man, they look like they’re having so much fun and I gotta be a part of it,’ you know?” Athena said. “And it just kept setting in. It’s like the more time that went on there the more I was just looking at AEW”

“Then Jade Cargill came on my radar with that ‘Storm’ cosplay she did and I was like ‘Oh my God, this girl is fire!’ That’s the first moment where I was like, ‘Oh, there’s something here, oh, there’s something special here.’ And I remember then she came out with the “Jade [from] Mortal Kombat” cosplay and I was like, ‘Damn! She got that.’ And it seemed from day one where the company started all the way to now and seeing how much love and passion that goes into every match, that goes into every talent that sets foot and you can see it on their face and it made me long for that again.”
