#1. Former WWE Superstar Big Swole
Before stepping inside a WWE ring a few years ago, Big Swole served in the United States military.
After Big Swole graduated from high school, she went to college. However, she dropped out a year later and joined the U.S. Air Force.
"I remembered promising her when I was younger, because she wanted to go to the air force. But she didn't have anybody to push her to follow her dreams. And so I was like, mommy I'll go to the air force for you. And I made like this big promise about it and, cause she's like, yeah girl, sure, whatever you, you won't do it. And when I was like, well, what do I want to want to do? And I was like, well, I want to go to the air force," she told Borne the Battle podcast.
Big Swole worked as a Fire Truck Mechanic in the U.S. Air Force. After leaving service, she started wrestling. In 2016, she made a one-off appearance on Monday Night RAW, competing against Nia Jax.
Swole lost the match. Nevertheless, the 32-year-old returned to WWE two years later to compete in the 2018 Mae Young Classic.
The former fire truck mechanic officially joined AEW in December 2019. She recently defeated Allie Katch on the September 21 episode of AEW Dark.
