      AEW star Anna Jay was interviewed this week on the Battleground podcast. Jay talked about teaming with Tay Conti, the Dark Order and much more. Check out some of the highlights below.

      On how she got into wrestling:

      Quote

      “I didn’t know how to get into it. There were no schools around me. I didn’t think it was possible. It kind of fell into my lap. Everyone around me knew I wanted to and Glacier from WCW is a family friend. My aunts talked to him and said this is her dream. He said he was opening a wrestling school in Atlanta called the Power Factory and told her that I should come. I went to a camp there and knew I wanted to do it. Six months later, I moved to Atlanta to train full time. That was in 2018.”

      On how she got into AEW:

      Quote

      “I trained at the Power Factory. There’s a connection there. QT Marshall, who was my coach and he knew Cody Rhodes. AEW was not a thing when I started training. During the pandemic, they did not have their handle on a lot of wrestlers due to travel restrictions. I was in driving distance so I got the call that they wanted me to do a dark match with Penelope Ford. That was my first match with AEW. I got called the next week to have the match with Shida on Dynamite. The following week, the rest is history so I really lucked out.”

      On picking her dream match, past or present:

      Quote

      “There’s so many people I want to wrestle who are wrestling right now. But, I honestly think who got me into wrestling is Nikki Bella. I’m not going to lie about it. She’s charismatic. She made me believe that was something I could do one day. So I would love to wrestle her. No stipulations. I would like to go a very long time in the ring with her. That would be a lifelong goal but I don’t think that’s going to happen now, but that would be very cool.”

          E! has picked up a sixth season of docuseries Total Bellas, which follows the lives of WWE stars Nikki Bella and Brie Bella.
          The NBCUniversal cable network will launch the next run of the show later this fall.
          Season 5 of the show, which ends tonight, June 11, featured Nikki and Artem’s French engagement and the twins finding out they’re both expecting and due within weeks of each other.
          The upcoming season will highlight the birth of their babies as Nikki navigates the joys of parenthood for the first time and Brie becomes a mom of two.
          The fifth season is averaging around 1M viewers, with 604K in the total 18-49 demo with nearly three quarters of these viewers women. This average is up 10% from last season and the show consistently ranks among the top ten shows in primetime across ad-supported cable nets.
          Total Bellas is produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions with Gil Goldschein, Andrea Metz and Farnaz Farjam Chazan serving as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions and Kevin Dunn and Chris Kaiser serving as executive producers for WWE. The Bella twins also serve as executive producers.
          It was also confirmed on tonight's season finale Nikki and Artem are having a boy.

          Nikki Bella is opening up about her painful past.

          In her new memoir, Incomparable — co-written with twin sister Brie — the Total Bellas star, 36, shares the grueling details of her sexual assaults, why she felt ashamed to share her truth, how she learned to let go, and how she plans to empower others.
          At 15 years old, Nikki was raped by a fellow high school student she "thought was a friend," she said in the book. Then, at 16, she was raped again after being drugged by a college-age man.
          "There is the horrible offense in the moment, and then the shame and blame that follow and feel almost worse than the original pain," she wrote in the book. "When something like this happens to you, you understand the blame-the-victim mentality, how easy it is to feel shame rather than anger, how easy it is to feel like you could have stopped it yourself."
          Speaking with PEOPLE in this week's issue, the mom-to-be explains why she held on to that blame for all these years — and the rippling effect it had on her life, her relationships and her future.
          "When that happened to me, I immediately just felt so ashamed and blamed myself, and that's what made me want to keep it such a secret," she says. "And keeping that a secret and blaming myself, I started to lose my confidence. I started to disrespect myself. And then the relationships I got into at a young age, I let other people disrespect me and felt like, that's okay, this is what I deserved."
          "I was like that for a really long time," she admits. "I would go to therapy on and off. Looking at it now I'm like, 'Oh Nicole, I wish you just would've let go at a young age. So much would have changed for you.' And I think that's what made me really want to tell these stories finally."
          Now, Nikki says she's eager to share her truth in hopes of helping others who have been in similar situations.
          "When the #MeToo movement happened, I was just like, 'Oh my gosh,'" she recalls. "I feel like, if I'm having these younger women look up to me, maybe I can help them and have them not hold onto this as long as I did. It wasn't until I was 28 and in a relationship where someone started to teach me how to respect myself. That's how long I held on to things and felt I had no boundaries. And I'd always look at Brie like, 'Oh, she has boundaries, she treats herself with such respect. How do I not have this?' And I knew why. But I held onto it for so long. When I look back at just decisions I made based off of it, I wish I could have heard my words now as a 36-year-old woman then, and be like, 'You're going to be okay.'"
