Reason For Big Swole AEW Absence Revealed

Reason For Big Swole AEW Absence Revealed

Tony Khan gave an explanation for the recent absence of Big Swole from AEW TV during the Revolution post-show media call.

Khan explained that she has had Crohn’s disease that has kept her out of the ring and that’s why she’s been inactive for a while.

Khan said:

“She’s a great wrestler, she’s got a great personality. I think, in the ring, she’s gotten better and she can continue to get better. She had risen up. She had a great record in 2020, and reached the top contender at one point she got a title shot, she didn’t beat Shida, but she had a great match and she’s had a lot of great matches. I really like Swole.

“In 2021, she has not really been active because she’s been sick. She’s had Crohn’s disease keeping her out so she has not been ranked. As you know we reset the rankings every year consistently for everybody. As we get deeper and deeper into 2021, each year, as the weeks and months pass the ranking becomes completely dependent on your record in that calendar year and we’re at that point now. So, she hasn’t wrestled a lot in 2021. The Eliminator Tournament, you know, she was actually out when we started The Eliminator Tournament with her flare-up with her Crohn’s. I think as she’s getting healthier, hopefully, we can consistently get her available and have her in action on a regular basis and she’s a great asset to us.”

Swole did appear on the Saturday, March 6 episode of AEW Dark so it seems that a return could be near. She didn’t wrestle but cut a promo on the stage.

Her last match was on January 7, and she has an overall AEW career record of 18-9.
