AEW catches the attention of Congresswoman for NY-14 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Well, I’m in an interracial marriage and I’ve learned a lot that I would’ve never known. One time I told Brandi, I said ‘I don’t see color’ and she said ‘well you don’t see my experience.’ And I thought ‘oh, you’re right, I can’t just say that.’ You need to be able to see that experience and at least understand it. The old territory system of ‘just one,’ and a lot of folks may remember that, that’s gone. That’s out, the best wrestlers are gonna field the game and that’s a very diverse profile and I’m really proud of it.”
