Anna Jay says The Dark Order is like a family backstage and reflects on working with Jerry Lynn.
Anna Jay is number 99 of The Dark Order. It is said that she had less than 10 matches when she made her AEW debut and now, she is an integral part of their programming.
Appearing on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Anna discussed the fast camaraderie she developed with other members of The Dark Order and Jerry Lynn’s impact on her development and AEW career to date.
AEW shared the following quotes with Fightful.
Anna Jay on The Dark Order:
"I feel like I have a bunch of brothers backstage. I grew up with two brothers, and it's kind of like [Dark Order] really fits me, and it's great having them in the back. First off, they're hilarious! Plus, I can always ask them for advice, you know a lot of them obviously have a lot more experience than I do—Brodie especially and John Silver, too. I think he's been wrestling for 15 years."
Anna Jay on working with Jerry Lynn:
"Every time that I would have a match, he would tell me little things that I could work on, and it just really meant a lot to me because I never went to him. I didn't really know who to go to other than the person who was coaching my match. So he would always come up to me and say, ‘Hey, you can do this next time.’ And every time I would listen, and it would really help because it's the little details that matter."
