Wrestling fans are some of the most passionate and knowledgeable in the world, with some of the most ardent fans claiming to know all there is to know about specific wrestlers. Anna Jay has been with AEW since 2020, and while some fans believe they know everything about her personal and professional life, the majority of those followers are likely unaware of her real identity, Anna Marie Jernigan.
AEW is only three years old, but it has already amassed an impressive roster. The women’s division of the company still needs work, but it’s full of ladies like Anna who have a lot of potential. Anna has a bright future ahead of her, and if she continues to improve, she will undoubtedly become one of AEW’s top talents.
Tay Conti is popular among AEW fans not just because of her appearance, character, and athleticism, but also because she has a promising future. That future exists mostly because she is young, which implies Anna Jay’s future is much brighter because she is the TayJay duo’s younger member.
Anna turned 23 years old this summer, having been born on June 15, 1998. Anna is one of the youngest wrestlers on the AEW roster, and despite her youth, she has already made a name for herself.
Although the year 2021 is drawing to a close, there are still plenty of predictions for AEW to be made, one of which being a Dark Order split. Although the group’s future is unknown, no one can dispute that the stable has aided Anna Jay’s development. Fans may be astonished to hear that she isn’t even the shortest member.
Anna is 5 feet 8 inches tall, which makes her taller than John Silver, and it shows when they’re on camera together. Taller ladies don’t always receive the same kind of pushes as shorter women, for whatever reason, but AEW has done a good job with Anna so far.
