AEW star Rebel was interviewed this week on Vickie Guerrero's "Excuse Me" podcast.
Here are some highlights:
Rebel talked about being a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader: “It was amazing and brutal at the same time. I think the way today is a little different than when I was there but it was 5 days a week, 4-5 hours a week of training and it was very strenuous. It’s like glamorized slavery. Yes, it has its perks, but it was a lot.”
Vickie mentioned that Rebel has a background of being a professional wrestler, a makeup artist, wrestling manager, actress and dancer and done music videos with famous people: “I used to belong to a show group that encompasses dancing, singing, twirling fire with a group called Perfect Angels. We were featured in a lot of videos. I got to be the lead in Trace Adkins’ 'Honkey Tonk Badonkadonk' video with him at the ACMA Awards in Las Vegas. I was in Brooks & Dunn’s, 'Play Something Country' and Toby Keith’s 'High Maintenance Woman'. The girls were on CMT’s Jeff Foxworthy’s 'Big Night Out.' We were the dancers in between the skits.”
Rebel talked about being signed by AEW to be the makeup artist and then transitioning to being an AEW character: “What happened was Britt (Baker) was doing a segment showing her dental office and they wanted someone to speak on her behalf. She pushed me in front of the camera and Tony Khan saw that. He said this duo is dynamic and we have to keep having them together.”
