Big Swole Reveals She Was Hospitalized Prior To Signing With AEW In 2019

December 19, 2021

Big Swole announced that she had mutually parted ways with All Elite Wrestling back on November 30th, 2021.

She signed with AEW back in November of 2019, when she was offered a contract backstage following her match with Hikaru Shida on AEW Dark, that was taped in Charlotte.

Swole was sidelined for a large part of 2021 as she battled what she later revealed to be Crohn’s Disease. Big Swole last wrestled on AEW programming back on the September 11th, 2021 episode of AEW Dark, defeating Allie Katch. Prior to that she had appeared as a participant in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale match at AEW’s All Out PPV.

While recently speaking on her new Swole World Call In show, Big Swole went into detail about her battle with Crohn’s disease, in which she also revealed that she had spent time in the hospital prior to her signing with AEW back in 2019. She added that at one point doctors had sent her blood off to the CDC and Mayo Clinic because they didn’t know what was wrong with her.

“There have been days where I have taken maybe two or three pain relievers, we’re talking hard pain relievers; narco, lortab, Percocet, Vicodin, Tramadol, morphine pills, hydrocodone, everything. There were times where I took two or three to get through a match because I don’t want to quit. There are people who have an autoimmune disease who are looking up to me and saying, ‘She’s doing it.’ Yes, I’m doing it and taking every measure I can do continue to do it. I do put my body on the line for this sport. To hear people saying that I don’t have Crohn’s, this is not something I would wish upon anyone.

There have been countless times where I’ve gone to the hospital and countless times where they are telling me, ‘You’re dying.’ Before I got signed to AEW, I got really really sick, to the point where they sent my blood to the CDC and Mayo Clinic and they didn’t know what it was. There is nothing scarier than looking to the people who are supposed to know these things and them saying, ‘we don’t know what you have’ because of this illness.

They ended up naming it the Nightmare Virus. I was deathly sick, dropping weight, I couldn’t hold up anything, and they couldn’t feed me. I asked God for two years to wrestle somewhere important and carry on because I felt like I needed to. He gave me the message that there was something bigger coming for me and I had to get ready. I got ready. This was right before I got to AEW, literally six months before doing the All Out battle Royale. I was in the hospital just completely gone and shriveled up to nothing. To hear people say I don’t have Crohn’s is completely ridiculous.”

Swole also stated that before the end of 2021 she would be telling her AEW Story.
