Former WWE/NXT star MJ Jenkins recently sat down with Sportskeeda to discuss her release from the company two weeks ago. Jenkins says she has her eyes set on AEW, and is exciting for all the improvements they’ve been making in their women’s division.
I can say, from what I’ve seen, the main place I would love to go is AEW. I can’t lie! To say that I haven’t been watching would be a complete lie. I think what they’re doing is amazing. All the talent that they have there.
Jenkins also reveals previous relationships with current AEW talents Sonny Kiss and Britt Baker, and recalls her and Baker having a tryout match in front of the entire WWE locker room.
Sonny Kiss has been one of my friends for the longest. I met him so long ago in New Jersey when I was wrestling and he was wrestling, at a smaller indie company. Britt Baker is there, and me and Britt had our first ever tryout match in front of the whole WWE locker room at SmackDown. And we killed it!””You just have so much great performers there. Ariel Monroe, Big Swole is what she goes by now… But I would love to go there because I believe in what they’re doing and I believe in their women’s division.
Jenkins occasionally appeared on NXT television during her time in WWE, most notably in the 2018 Mae Young Classic, where she lost in the first round to former NXT women’s champion Rhea Ripley.
