Thicc Mama Pump says Big Poppa Pump is very nice in real life.
Jordynne Grace, the newly-crowned inaugural IMPACT Digital Media Champion has in the past tagged with wrestling legend Scott Steiner. Calling herself "Thicc Mama Pump," a play on Steiner's "Big Poppa Pump," Jordynne Grace emphasizes her strength in similar ways to Scott during his top days as a singles star.
Speaking on Generation of Wrestling, Grace praised Steiner for being similar to his character and only providing contrast in real life to his character where it really counts.
"Oh, that's him, obviously not as misogynistic but like the way he talks and his overall demeanor is kind of the same. He really reminds me of my grandpa. He's like a cool-ass grandpa, right? He's a super sweet, super nice guy, but when you're around him, you can feel his presence. If that makes any sense at all."
Speaking about her nickname, she would say that was a fan call, but she found herself falling in love with Scott's in-ring style after watching matches and his infamous "Math" promo.
"Oh, he definitely didn't pitch it. I don't I don't think he pitches anything anymore. I think he just gets kind of like thrown into these stories. But actually, I'm 25 so that Steiner promo and his matches and stuff, obviously, were kind of like before my time. A few years ago, maybe five-six years ago, I watched the Steiner promo for the first time and I was immediately like, 'This is the best thing I've ever seen. This is the best promo ever.' I started watching some of his matches and I just kind of fell in love with his persona, his wrestling ability. I had tweeted something like 'Oh, what do you guys think my new moniker should be?' One of the options was 'Thicc Mama Pump,' that like won out by a lot and so I started using it on the indies and then somebody I don't know who like started some kind of campaign about me and Scott to do a tag match, eventually, I got signed to IMPACT and then the opportunity came about and it just happened to just kind of fall into place.
"They did not want me to use the name Thicc Mama Pump' at first. They didn't want to put it on my screen, I don't think I was allowed to have the sirens on my music. Then, they just kind of realized, 'Well fuck, everybody already knows her as this on social media and stuff, so we're just gonna use it.' I actually didn't even know that they put the name 'Thicc Mama Pump,' in my tron until one day, I was watching one of my matches back and I was like, 'Oh shit, they put it on there.'"
Jordynne Grace won the Digital Media Championship at Bound for Glory during the Countdown Show.
