Before going to North Carolina to train with George South, Aerial Hull nicknamed Big Swole served in the US Air Force as a fire truck technician. Mother and wife Cedric Johnson alias Cedric Alexander. The fact that Big Swole also has Crohn’s disease, an immune-related condition, always amazed me since I have chronic pain and autoimmune concerns.
On Monday Night Raw in 2015, Swole made her debut as a guest star. Nia Jax was the target of her arrival. My first impression of her was when she played in the 2018 Mae Young Classic competition. Battle Club Pro, SHINE, and Queens of Combat were among the promotions Big Swole participated in as well.
Swole was most notable for his time on AEW. In 2019, she participated in the All Out Pre Show’s 21-woman Casino Battle Royale. A short time later, she was added to the team’s roster. Emi Sakura and Britt Baker were among the opponents she faced during her time there. In the interest of full disclosure, I believe Britt’s fan following grew in part because of the work she performed with her.
Dynamite should have put her bout with Diamante on rather than Dark. That will irritate me for the rest of my life, but I digress. After defeating Zoe Lucas in 2019, Big Swole was crowned 2019’s Phoenix of Rose Champion. She’ll be the longest-reigning champion in RISE history with an 870-day reign.
In addition, she and Tasha Steelz battled it out in Battle Club Pro (IMPACT Wrestling).
It’s a shame that Big Swole isn’t getting the recognition she deserves, particularly at this time of year when the significance of Black History and achievement is highlighted.
