AEW star Anna Jay recently appeared on Talk Is Jericho. She reflected on her run with the company and discussed her role in the Dark Order. In one highlight, she revealed that she hopes the stable stays together, and she hinted that the group is more of a babyface faction now.
“I hope we stay together, at least for a little while,” said Jay. “I think now we’re even more like a family on-screen and off-screen. So I feel like we kind of have to go in that direction…. [We’re] probably nice guys now….I don’t really know how people are going to boo, you know?”
Jay also described the origin of her “Queenslayer” nickname, and she stated that Brodie Lee surprised her with this moniker.
“I didn’t even know that he was gonna call me the “Queenslayer” until we were live, and he did it in the ring,” said Jay. “And it just kind of caught on.”
Likewise, Jay shared how Lee came up with her number (99) in the Dark Order.
“I didn’t even know about that until his [AEW] Unrestricted interview came out,” said Jay. “He never even told me, and it’s funny because in the interview, he literally said it only matters to me. So he never even told me that’s what it was for. But now to know that, it’s crazy and it’s cool, and I’ll keep that with me forever.
“99 [is] Wayne Gretzky, the hockey player. I don’t know much about hockey, but obviously, [Brodie] was a huge fan, and I guess ‘The Great One’ so like I said it’s an honor to have that number.”
Fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Jay and the Dark Order. The stable is regularly featured on AEW programming every week.
