Aubrey Edwards made history at AEW All Out when she became the first female to referee a World Title match on pay-per-view. Edwards served as the referee for the AEW World Championship bout between Chris Jericho and "Hangman" Page, keeping the competitors in-line during the historical match. At one point, she admonished Jericho for putting his hands on an official.
Oh hey can we talk about how I'm yelling at THE Chris Jericho while making history and that this is my life now wtf https://t.co/SOALHPzSCB— Aubrey Edwards ------ Gearl Hebner (@RefAubrey) September 1, 2019
One day after All Out, Edwards confirmed on social media that she had signed with All Elite Wrestling as a full-time referee.
Yesterday was huge, but today is too! Today I'm officially a full-time referee for @AEWrestling.— Aubrey Edwards ------ Gearl Hebner (@RefAubrey) September 1, 2019
This was a long time coming, but I needed to close the doors on my previous job before saying anything. Now I yell at people to pay my bills. What is life?
