One of All Elite Wrestling’s fastest rising and brightest female stars in Anna Jay of the Dark Order recently appeared as a guest on Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast, where she talked about “The Exalted One” Brodie Lee’s influence on her, where did Brodie get the Queen Slayer nickname and why it was given to her and the 99 nickname.
Below are the highlights:
On “The Exalted One” Brodie Lee’s influence on her:
“It was great. First off, he was super welcoming. Then being the only girl with all those guys, he was super nice. He was super helpful with my character telling me how I should portray myself. He also helped me get people to be interested in what I was doing which helped a lot. He gave me the Queen Slayer and 99 names. He would always watch my matches. Every segment that I did, when I would come to the back, he would tell me what I should do differently or if I did good or what I should fix for the next time. He helped a lot.”
On where did Brodie get the Queen Slayer nickname and why it was given to her:
“Honestly, I don’t know. I didn’t even know he was going to call me the Queen Slayer until we were live and he did it in the ring. Then it caught on.”
On the 99 nickname:
“Yea, that was cool too. I didn’t even know about that until his Unrestricted interview came out. He never even told me and it’s funny because in the interview, he literally said it only matters to me. So he never even told me that’s what it was for. But now to know that, it’s crazy and it’s cool and I will keep that forever. 99 is Wayne Gretzky the hockey player. I don’t know much about hockey, but obviously, he was a huge fan. It’s an honor to have that number even though I think people were confused that I had 99 and everyone else was 1 through 10.”
