AEW star Anna Jay has been the subject of many memes ever since she debuted her new catchphrase: “Fat Ass and a Bad Attitude.”
In a new interview with Under The Ring Jay discusses coming up with the catchphrase and how she new it was going to create some buzz, whether it was good or bad.
I kind of knew, if I was going to say it, that it would create some sort of buzz, whether bad or good. I thought it was on brand with the JAS because everything is kind of ridiculous in a great way. I thought it fit and I was like, ‘You know what, people sometimes say this kind of things to me, why don’t I just say it and see where it goes.’ It just went with it. I thought about it saying it for a little while, but I went back and forth, ‘I don’t know if I want to say it,’ because it’s not really me, personally, but it works with JAS, so I decided to say it and that’s how it happened.
Staying on the subject, Jay explains why the catchphrase is actually a positive thing because a lot of women could relate.
That’s one of the things I was thinking when I was talking to other people about saying it, ‘This is great. A lot of women, I feel they can relate, and guys too.’ Even guys backstage are like, ‘I want this shirt.’ I have Daddy Magic [Matt Menard] wearing it backstage. I thought about it and it’s a positive thing. If I’m going to say it about myself, other people will want to say it about themselves too.
Elsewhere in the interview, Jay spoke about her recent street fight against Julia Hart from last week’s AEW Dynamite. You can read her comments about that match here.
