AEW wrestler Queen Aminata became the first African-born woman to sign with a major wrestling promotion, and she discussed the topic during a recent appearance on the “AEW Unrestricted” podcast.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On signing with AEW: “Coming from Guinea, I wouldn’t say there’s nothing special about it but there’s so much more because people from here don’t know Guinea. They know Africa, but it’s like, Africa, you know what I mean? I just wanted to give them something that they don’t know, tell them a story without talking to them that is showing them, hey this is where I’m from, but this is what you get. Especially with being signed, this is a bigger company that has a major platform for me, so what a better way for me to just express myself and show people my culture, my accent, and how proud I am to walk in there with my cape.”

On fans questioning her authenticity: “It’s funny sometimes because some fans will be like, ‘Oh my God, that’s just a fake accent, are you really from Africa?’ I’m like, ‘Yes honey, I was born and raised in Africa. I still go back.’ I just had bigger dreams than I could realize in Africa, so I just took a chance on me and I gave it my all. I feel like I have two homes now, I have the USA and I have Africa. I’m happy to be here, at the same time I miss home. I’m so thankful for everything I’m building here and I know there is many more to come.”

Steph De Lander and Matt Cardona returned to TNA on Thursday’s episode of TNA Impact, with De Lander earning a Knockouts Title match.

De Lander returned to compete in the 8-4-1 match on Thursday’s show to determine a #1 contender to the Knockouts Champion, replacing Ash By Elegance and reaching the final four.

When the match went to a fatal four-way, Cardona returned to help De Lander win and earn a Knockouts Title match against Jordynne Grace.

De Lander will challenge Grace at TNA Rebellion on April 20.
