“I remember when Kenny told me, Hey, we’re thinking about bringing in Tay. I think you and I had an interaction at the previous place when I was trying out that it was kind of like, ‘Man, this girl’s kind of a bitch. Like, what’s up.’ We’ve talked about it further since then. But I told Kenny, I’m like, ‘Dude, I don’t know, she might not be good for the locker room.’”

Edwards soon realized Tay Conti had a unique energy and changed her mind about her.

“Then, after that first day, you’re around, I texted him and said, ‘We need her. Like, she’s good energy. She’s a solid worker, like, she will be a great addition to our team.’”

Tay Conti revealed not being happy in WWE

Conti responded, revealing that she wasn’t happy at her previous place of employment. Hence, it took her a while to get settled but since then, she has been enjoying her new life at AEW.

I can be myself.”
