Her signing was revealed by Excalibur during her entrance on an episode of Dark. However, Hogan is yet to receive the official ‘All Elite’ graphic.
In a recent interview on GAW TV, Hogan confirmed she is signed to AEW and spoke candidly about her time in the promotion thus far.
“I like the girls in the [AEW] locker room. Obviously, my girlfriend, Diamante, worked there before I worked there so I was there backstage a lot of the time helping girls do makeup because I do makeup sometimes. I also have a lot of friends in the locker room that were excited for me to come over there. They’re like, ‘Are you gonna come over here? I wanna wrestle you, I wanna wrestle you,’ like Tay [Conti], Red Velvet, and of course, one of my best friends, Big Swole, Nyla [Rose], a lot of the girls were just like, ‘We want to wrestle you. I wanna have a match with you because I know –’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I wanna have bomb ass matches with you, too.'”
Upon arriving in AEW, Hogan has faced the likes of Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander and Jade Cargill. Despite wrestling some the promotion’s biggest stars she feels she has got lost in the shuffle as of late.
“Okay, so I’m here, but I feel like — there’s a lot of moving parts going on at AEW right now, so I feel like a lot of things are getting lost in the shuffle and I feel like I’m one of those things, but, I’m just trying to just stay positive and just focus on what I can control which is just staying ready for whenever that opportunity does present itself and I’m excited because — NWA, I still am able to do indie bookings under my contract and do things that honestly I can do because of my contract so I’m able to still work and go out and things and with the time that I do have off, I’m able to just focus on myself, working out, my move set, and going to training or getting bookings.
Hopefully, like I said, [she will get bookings] overseas or something with the time that I have off because it’s only a couple of shows and the Dark and the Elevation tapings are kind of sporadic when it comes to filming. I’m not really sure like the next time I do work, but I just try to stay ready for whenever the opportunity [comes].”
Hogan is also involved with NWA and is currently in a programme with Mickie James.
