Becoming the Ringmaster: The Journey of Aubrey Edwards from Fan to Renowned Referee
In 2009 Aubrey Edwards graduated with a BS in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation. Then she went to Digipen and dove into programming.
As an intern, she helped ship an impressive three Nintendo DS titles as a tools programmer at 5th Cell. Beyond this, she also began to serve as a producer on her sophomore, junior, and senior DigiPen game team projects.
Edwards was also a dancer but continued her game production career. Although, she started a nonprofit dance company that worked with the Boys and Girls Club.
Later her husband, who also graduated from Digipen, began wrestling with an indie league in Seattle called 3-2-1 Battle. Their idea was Edwards would dance, and Steve would wrestle.
The couple both supported each other. Then in 2017, she changed her career path.
It all began when one of the referees, Chris Samuels, at the 3-2-1 Battle said they were looking for more refs. Chris asked her, “Do you want to try it?” and then she said, “Yes.”
Although she had been a wrestling fan for many years and had seen numerous live matches, things didn’t instantly click. She laughed and said, “I sucked.”
Edwards didn’t give up and kept training. Then after two months, she reffed her first match.
Afterward, she was reffing an average of two indie wrestling matches every weekend. Her journey as a referee formed, and people started to recognize her.
As of now, she is one of the most famous referees.
