Willow Nightingale was a recent guest on the “Chats & Graps” podcast to discuss a series of matches she had with Athena last year in Ring of Honor.

Additionally, Nightingale opined on becoming the second winner of the Owen Hart Cup women’s tournament.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On their first match together in March of 2023: “We were doing the Ring of Honor tapings in Orlando Universal Studios at the time, and we would do like four tapings a day, like four different shows. We do the first show, they’re like ‘alright we’re going to have you cut this promo and challenge Athena for the title’ and I was like ‘oh okay so like I’m wrestling today.’”

On being praised by Zak Sabre Jr. the next day: “Up to that point, that was like my favorite match I’d ever had in my life, and the next day I did a Beyond Wrestling show in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Zack Sabre Jr. was also on that show. He was at the Ring of Honor tapings the night before, and he was like ‘that was the best babyface performance I’ve seen in a long, long time.’”

On becoming the second winner of the Owen Hart Cup women’s tournament: “Winning The Owen was also a really cool full circle moment. Because the very first match I had on AEW television — because I had done Dark a bunch, but the very first television match I had was against Red Velvet in an Owen Hart Cup qualifying match on Rampage the year before. So that was really my first exposure to the AEW crowd who’s only tuned in on TV for me. To then be in the next tournament and win it all, it was like, ‘Something’s working.’”
