Anna Jay Discusses ‘Fat Ass, Bad Attitude’ Catchphrase, How It’s A Positive Message

Anna Jay discusses her controversial catchphrase.

For the past number of weeks, Anna Jay has been the subject of many memes within the wrestling internet community, which began to surface after she cut a promo on the March 31 episode of AEW Rampage. In the promo, Jay brought a new tagline to life where she said that she has a fat ass and a bad attitude.

In a new interview with the Under The Ring podcast, Jay talked about how she wrestled with the idea of the catchphrase at first, but ultimately decided to use it because it fit with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

"I kind of knew, if I was going to say it, that it would create some sort of buzz, whether bad or good. I thought it was on brand with the JAS because everything is kind of ridiculous in a great way. I thought it fit and I was like, ‘You know what, people sometimes say this kind of things to me, why don’t I just say it and see where it goes.’ It just went with it. I thought about it saying it for a little while, but I went back and forth, ‘I don’t know if I want to say it,’ because it’s not really me, personally, but it works with JAS, so I decided to say it and that’s how it happened."

Jay also went on to note that the catchphrase is also a positive thing in some ways.

"That’s one of the things I was thinking when I was talking to other people about saying it, ‘This is great. A lot of women, I feel they can relate, and guys too.’ Even guys backstage are like, ‘I want this shirt.’ I have Daddy Magic [Matt Menard] wearing it backstage. I thought about it and it’s a positive thing. If I’m going to say it about myself, other people will want to say it about themselves too."

In a separate recent interview, Jay talked about working with Ruby Soho. Fans can learn more here.
