Ariane Andrew Comments on Her Recent AEW Appearances

Ariane Andrew Comments on Her Recent AEW Appearances
Ariane Andrew recently competed on AEW Deadly Draw Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament (you can watch her match here).

Ariane and Nyla Rose lost their first-round match, but it was certainly a whirlwind experience for the former Funkadactyl.

Andrew revealed that AEW Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes was the one to reach out to her for her AEW appearances. Ariane had very little time to prepare, and she almost declined the invitation. She was able to get everything in line and make it to the Dynamite tapings prior to wrestling in the Women’s Tag Team Cup Tournament.

“Brandi actually reached out to me, and like I said, it was super last minute,” Andrew noted. “At the time, I was visiting my boyfriend in Phoenix, so I was like, OK, I gotta get back to LA. Corona is happening. So I have to get back. I have no gear. My weave is falling off. I haven’t gotten my weave done, and I almost said no because I felt like I wasn’t prepared. And again, out of all the projects I do, wrestling scares me the most because I know I didn’t have much training, and I know how particular fans are. And I just wanted to make sure that I succeed it. So I was like, I just need more time, but in life, when things happen, when are you ever really prepared?”

"So it's crazy when people are like, 'wow, she's improved.' I was like little do people know I have less than a week when everything even happened with AEW. I literally went out with zero training. We didn't get to go over anything except for the finish. So literally it was like I am praying to Jesus Christ and the universe that I do not f--k this up because I know people are waiting for me to fail. So that's actually the real, and I don't think most people know that because like, 'oh, yeah, she's been training.' I'm like, 'no, I haven't' because I just a back in the ring in January, and then coronavirus. So it's like I wasn't training."

“So it’s like, you know what, I’m going to go out there and regardless of what happens, regardless of what people think, I’m doing something for me. It’s not for fans. It’s not for [the] management team and what they think. I’m doing it for myself because I really truly do have a passion for the ring, and I missed it. And I was like, you know what, maybe this never happens again, and I never want to look back at life and regret it. No matter what the outcome was going to be.”
