Black Wrestlers Matter is an important movement that continues to generate support in professional wrestling. With Black Wrestlers Matter – Saint Louis scheduled for February 19, 2022; the card continues to take shape with names that many fans will recognize while discovering new talent to enjoy.
Big Swole is fresh off her run with AEW where she was one of the most popular performers in the promotion. During her tenure she played a vital part in Britt Baker’s rise with the fans, defeating the current AEW Women’s Champion at All Out 2020 in a Tooth and Nail match. She challenged for the title one time, falling to Hikaru Shida in October of that same year.
“When I was approached to work this show, it was gonna be a yes regardless,” Swole tweeted on Monday. “But the icing on the cake is working with Tootie Lynn.”
Lynn has competed for a variety of promotions throughout her career including AEW, NWA, and Mission Pro Wrestling. She’s the current Midwest Territory Champion, and she’s held that title for 50 days. She took part in the pre-show at NWA Hard Times 2 where she competed in a four-way match for the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championships, teaming with Kylie Rae, but the match was won by The Hex, Marti Belle, and Allysin Kay.
ACH and Camaro Jackson is another big matchup scheduled for the February card.
ACH is making his return to the ring after nearly stepping away entirely. Mainstream fans will recognize him from his time in WWE NXT where he won the inaugural NXT Breakout Tournament. After leaving NXT in 2019 he would compete in major promotions like New Japan, GCW, MLW, and others while being a champion for companies like EVOLVE and DDT.
Jackson is another wrestler that independent fans will recognize. He was recently seen in AEW, but has also competed in GCW, World League Wrestling, and Glory Pro in recent years.
