‘Homegrown’ Star Opens Up About AEW Mentor Since Joining Company AEW

A “homegrown” member of the AEW women’s roster has opened up her mentor and the journey to joining the company.

Skye Blue is currently one of the subjects that has caught the attention of The Outcasts (Saraya, Toni Storm and Ruby Soho), making her a regular on AEW Dynamite and Rampage.

She was reported to be under “an agreement with AEW” in September 2022, though the specifics weren’t known having made her debut in September 2021 on AEW Dark.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Blue spoke about her path to AEW, saying:

“I started training when I was a junior in high school. My mom came with me to every practice and every show because I was 17 and very determined like, ‘I’m gonna do this,’ and she’s like, ‘No, you’re not.’

“So I started training back then and started doing shows that same year. I trained at a really small school in Woodstock, Illinois, originally.

“Then I moved to a school in Chicago where I train now at CFW. Then I think NWA was the first big promotion I ever worked for.”

Blue revealed that she is mentored by five-time TNA Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne, saying:

“Madison took me under her wing. She’ll remind me of the little things. Like I’ll want to jump off of whatever, I’ll want to do whatever, and she’s like, ‘Alright, Skye, you gotta look at the camera.

“She reminds me of the little things that make a difference.”

The mentorship started around a year into Blue’s time in AEW.

Blue would work for NWA from March 2021 to September of that year when she would start working for AEW.

She would be signed by the company following her appearance in the Casino Battle Royale at All Out in 2021.
