On this week's "The Sessions with Renee Paquette," Big Swole talked about putting out a music album, her release from AEW, and fans arguing about WWE vs. AEW.

Big Swole is working on putting out an album:

"I am working on my album. I'm finally putting together a nice little EP, 'For the People' that's gonna have a very, like, I'm a 90s kid, so it's gonna be very 90s aesthetic.”

Swole talking about her release from AEW:

"I still have love for the people there at AEW. I still have friends and everything like that. I'm supportive. I still watch their matches and everything," Swole said.

"Everything that went down kind of just went as a surprise for me. I didn't necessarily know he (Tony Khan) was going to react like that, but I mean, that's just his God given right. But my line is still open for T.K., for AEW, because I don't like to burn any bridges. I just like to tell the truth."

"These are my opinions, these are my experiences, and I feel like they shouldn't have been blown out of proportion as much as they have. I feel like people were doing more invalidating than actually actively listening and comprehending what I was saying. So in a sense of where my relationship is with certain fans, it's kind of like, no, but as far as AEW, I just really wish them the best because I don't want anybody getting out of a job."

"Competition is amazing for wrestling. We've been waiting for something like this for a very long time. Like, this is great. I feel like especially in this business, but especially in the world, but especially with these folks, if everybody just puts down the knives and picks up a fork, everybody can eat. There are places for people to eat everywhere."

"But people are so busy trying to like, 'Oh, this is my slice. This is mine. This is mine', and a lot of pointing and back and forth like, 'Oh, it's a war and this, this, and this.' No, it's just competition. It's just a place where people can eat and a place where you could put food on your table, a place where you can actually have some pride."

"I'm not a fan of people dragging each one. You won't hear me say like, 'Oh, I wish that this company would go to crap or like the different comments that people have been saying about people working with WWE vs people working with AEW. I'm like, guys, just chill. We're just here to watch wrestling."

Big Swole commenting on fans arguing with each other over WWE vs AEW:

"It's crazy to me, because behind that whole wall, you have a bunch of wrestlers who talk to each other, a whole bunch of friends, who are laughing at the whole situation. Like, alright, this is a little too much. You know, like, you guys are doing a little too much. Like, I don't care."

"You are pro WWE. That's great. You like to watch that. It's just wrestling. I'm just trying to see my friends succeed. I feel like if you are a true fan of wrestling, you should want the wrestlers to succeed wherever they're at."
