In the latest AEW Unrestricted podcast, AEW referee Aubrey Edwards reveals a “vocal minority” of fans complain about her all the time. Edwards explains that AEW’s social media team receives complaints every week that she’s too distracting.
They complain that her lipstick is distracting or she is too much attention away from the wrestlers.
She explains those complaints are not getting to her.
“My favorite comment online once was that someone couldn’t watch the match because my lipstick was too distracting. Yeah, I’m like, ‘You’re not paying attention to wrestling. Like what the hell are you doing buddy?’ I think the social media team gets at least one email a week about me and how I’m a distraction, and people can’t watch All Elite Wrestling because I’m on the TV.”
“There’s always going to be people who vocalize what they don’t like. There’s always that really vocal minority. The ones that are behind the keyboards that are like, ‘Oh, I don’t like this.’ It’s fine. You’re allowed to like or not like certain things. Everyone’s different. There’s enough wrestling out there for you, whatever. But the thing that’s really interesting is just how many — it’s a very common occurrence where people just say I take too much attention away from the wrestlers, I’m too distracting.”
Edwards is not only a referee for AEW shows. She also works in the All Elite Wrestling front offices as well. She has a background in IT so she picks up any job that someone’s not already doing. She is an asset to the AEW team on-screen and off.
She is also incredibly dedicated as she elected to stay in the Jacksonville area during AEW tapings instead of going back to her home base in Seattle.

Agreed, but without the body. She is distracting, not because of lipstick or whatever, but because she’s ALWAYS involoved/ in the face or yelling. I never even notice the ref in matches unless they get knocked out or something. Very easy to tell the powers that be are trying to make her more famous than she is.

WTF;you people are saying she’s distracting because she’s not afraid to make sure that the rules are being followed, and you’re telling me that you would call any referee a distraction for physically pulling two wrestlers out of the corner?
You Sure,because the Guy’s do get in w/um but I don’t hear u saying the guy’s are a distraction.
