Willow Nightingale Says Winning AEW TBS Title Felt Like ‘a Very Long Journey’

At the AEW Dynasty post-show media scrum on Sunday night, Willow Nightingale took various questions from the media. 

During it, Willow talked about beating Julia Hart for the TBS Title and is now setting the stage for her defense against Mercedes Mone at Double Or Nothing. 

“For me, even getting to AEW in the first place, I had to put work in like every day, every moment. Because I really started here. I was coming down to Jacksonville during the pandemic and I was sitting front row in the crowd and cheering for everyone. And I was in the dark matches and trying my best to put my best foot forward and be the best Willow I could be and make an impression. And while I did feel like there were people who were paying attention, it was like, “How do I make this happen? I want this to be my job. I want to work here. I love AEW.”

She added, “I was sitting down during quarantine at home every Wednesday watching in my Philly apartment with my boyfriend. I was like, “I know this is where I wanna be.” For me, it felt like a very long journey, but I think it really started last year in May, when I first wrestled Mercedes in the Owen Hart tournament that I won. And even having the first women’s main event in Ring of Honor history against Athena, like bang, bang, bang, back to back — that felt like a new level for me entirely that I was reaching. And so at that point, that’s when it was clear to me, it was like, “Okay, I can be this performer. I can be this high-level competitor.” And now we’re here, and you always think about like getting to the finish line, but this isn’t the finish line. It’s like, now I’m kind of just starting.”
