Jamie Hayter: Becoming Champion Is Extremely Validating For Myself

Jamie Hayter did the unthinkable.

Jamie Hayter defeated Toni Storm at AEW Full Gear to become the interim AEW Women’s Champion. Following the show, Jamie spoke for the first time as champion at the post show media scrum, where she noted that becoming the champion is extremely validating for her after working so hard to get to this point.

Becoming the champion is extremely validating for myself because after working, like everybody works hard in wrestling, every single wrestler that goes out there, they work hard, they sacrifice. When it happens to you, it’s almost a surreal moment because you never really think it’s gonna happen, you never think you’re gonna win a belt at a company, you’re never gonna be signed to a company, you’re never gonna achieve really anything. It’s just a pipe dream. But, I can’t even put into words now I feel right now, it’s, if my wrestling career ended tomorrow, god forbid, I would be so incredibly happy with everything that I’ve achieved and this is definitely the cherry on top of everything.
