During the AEW Revolution post-show media scrum on Sunday, Tony Khan informed fans that Big Swole had been out of action following a flare-up with Crohn's disease.
Swole has not wrestled since the January 7 episode of AEW Dark, but she did appear on the March 6 episode of Dark, cutting a promo to state she's coming after the AEW Women's Championship.
Taking to social media on Monday night, Swole provided an update on her current status.
This past year has been filled with ups and a lot of downs. After my bout with pneumonia early last year, I was informed that resuming my medicine for Crohn's would result in death given the COVID-19 circumstances. Seeing as how the biologic I was on shuts down my immune system and acts as such resuming my medicine was not an option. I was doing alright self-managing until the flare ups started in the fall. As some of you may not know Crohn's attacks the body as a whole so on top of my intestines issues different body parts would lock up and become incapable of being at the joints. Some days I could barely walk and that took a toll on me emotionally and mentally. Living with this disease may seem like a thorn and it is but it also shows me that His grade is sufficient and no matter what happens I will smile because I am more than a conqueror. I am Swole and that mentality/faith will carry me through it all. I ask that you bare with me, I'm getting the treatments that I need and my journey to complete healing is underway. Thank you for your love and thoughtful messages, I appreciate them and you! Much love to everyone, be safe!
