Aubrey Edwards On Being Scared to Referee The First AEW World Title Match, Main Eventing a PPV Was a Career Goal

Aubrey Edwards - Wrestling Examiner

AEW referee Aubrey Edwards recently was a guest on Talk is Jericho, where she discussed several topics, including her career, her time in AEW, refereeing a PPV match and how nervous she was, plus much more

Check out the highlights or listen to the full podcast below.

Chris Jericho on asking to have Aubrey Edwards referee the match:

“It’s funny, because I was — once again, coming here and I knew a few people. There’s a lot of people I don’t know, so you’re just watching the matches and seeing everybody’s vibe. And I remember, I said to Cody, ‘She’s really good as a ref,’ right? And that’s when I was thinking, ‘Okay, we’re doing this title match with with Hangman. I want to have Aubrey, the first ever female ref in a world heavyweight title match.’”

Aubrey Edwards on being nervous during the match:

“[It was] terrifying. [laughs] I’m not going lie, I was scared in that match. People ask me like, what my favorite match is, and they assume it’s that one. I’m like, ‘Oh, no.’ I was all in my head, I was so worried. It’s my first time working with Chris. Turns out he’s — you’re cool, great, cool guy and super easy to work with. But I’m like, ‘I just don’t wanna f**k up.’ I’m so nervous. I’m worried I’m just going to drop the belt because it’s like 40 pounds. I was so in my head about that whole thing, that I don’t think I enjoyed it in the moment. Now, watching it back after I’m like, ‘Okay, this was good. I’m happy with my performance. I could have done a couple things differently/.’ But yeah, I was nerve-racked.”

Aubrey Edwards on working the main event of a PPV being one of her goals:

“I was incredibly grateful for that. Honestly, one of my career goals was to main event a PPV someday. And to do that just after I have my two-year anniversary in the business is absolutely insane. So I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity. It was great.”
