All Elite Wrestling has tasted success ever since the company was established back on January 1, 2019 and they have really been making a name for themselves in the professional wrestling industry and the promotion has been garnering global recognition all around the world and they have also been reaching worldwide audiences and markets.
One of the biggest factors in AEW’s continued success is the caliber of talent the company has signed throughout the years such as CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, Hangman Page, Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks. The company has also signed Lucha Libre Stars such as Penta El Zero Miedo, Rey Fenix and Aramis, who has worked for promotions like AAA and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that Aramis once had a deal with All Elite Wrestling, but it has since expired and AEW President and CEO Tony Khan chose not to renew Aramis’ contract with the company as there had been no plans to use him since he was signed, though AEW wanted to lock him up for the future, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things didn’t work out.
There is no word yet on what the plans are for Aramis’ future in the company as several deals are set to expire in the coming weeks from the original roster, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
As previously reported, AEW President Tony Khan recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TVInsider on how several talents have their contracts coming up and how he’s really tried to be considerate of the AEW wrestlers, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic and how he kept a lot of the roster under contract even though they weren’t necessarily being used on TV as he wanted them to still have work. Tony Khan also spoke about how with all the new talents coming in he has to make the tough decisions and how he wouldn’t be able to renew all the contracts and there are certain factors he must consider in keeping these talents such as ability, fan response, or possibly even both.
