Skye Blue has come a long way.
The women’s wrestling star recently appeared as a guest on AEW Unrestricted, the official podcast of All Elite Wrestling, for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the AEW women’s star reflected on working the pre-show for the first-ever NWA EmPowerrr all-women’s pay-per-view event.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where she touches on this topic with her memories.
On working behind-the-scenes with Mickie James for the NWA EmPowerrr pre-show: “She pays attention to the little things, so when we were running the match by her, because I wrestled Christi Jaynes. We both had a lucha background, so we wanted to play on that because not a lot of people have as much lucha background as us. We were the first match, so we wanted to do something different so when you see the rest… it was a short pre-show match, so we didn’t want to take anything from the main card.”
On how Mickie James is a big on little details, ones that can help elevate a story and add layers to a character: “But even like the little things, the little details on our entrance, on our beauty shot, stuff like that, she was paying close attention to. I won with a roll up I think and she was like ‘Make sure you roll out of the ring and then you celebrate cause you’re like holy crap, I just won. You want to get out of dodge because she’s a heel.’ How close attention she paid to the little things, how the little things add up in the end. She was super hands on, which is dope.”
