Former Lucha Underground and AAA Star Jack Evans, who signed with AEW on May 9, 2019 and who made his All Elite Wrestling in-ring debut at the company’s first-ever PPV Event known as Double or Nothing on May 25, 2019, when he teamed up with Angelico in a losing effort to Trent Beretta and Chuck Taylor of Best Friends, recently took to Twitter and revealed that he enjoyed his time competing for AEW and it has really been fun, but his contract with the company will not be renewed once it expires at the end of this month and he would like to thank everyone in AEW for the opportunity.
Jack Evans then sent a follow-up tweet, where he praised All Elite Wrestling for letting his contract run its full length as opposed to releasing him before his contract was up. Prior to signing with All Elite Wrestling, Jack Evans also competed for promotions such as ROH, TNA, MTV’s Wrestling Society X, AAA and Lucha Underground. Evans became a four-time AAA World Tag Team Champion with Extreme Tiger as well as long-time tag team partner Angelico and a one-time AAA World Cruiserweight Champion. Evans as the AAA Cruiserweight Champion for 713 days is the third-longest reign in the title’s history, behind only El Hijo del Fantasma (Santos Escobar) and current AAA Cruiserweight Champion Laredo Kid.
In Lucha Underground, Evans was most popularly known for his time in the Worldwide Underground stable with Johnny Mundo (John Morrison), PJ Black, Taya (Taya Valkyrie) and Ricky Mundo (Ricky Mandel), who won the Lucha Underground Trios Title in season two of the promotion with Johnny Mundo and PJ Black.
Jack Evans’ most popular matches in AEW was when he and Angelico faced The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) on the December 9th, 2020 episode of AEW Dynamite and when he challenged Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega Championship on the November 26th, 2021 episode of AEW Dark, but would come out of the match on the losing end.
Jack Evans was the talk of the pro wrestling world last December when he was allegedly being extorted by Mexican police. A couple of weeks later, Evans would post a video on social media and claim police was trying to extort him yet again. Jack Evans last competed for AEW during an episode of AEW Dark in March, where he was defeated by Dante Martin.
Evans’ tag team partner Angelico last competed for AEW on the most recent episode of Dark: Elevation, when he returned from a torn ACL and competed with Private Party and the Blade to take on Top Flight and the Hardys in 8-Man Tag Team action. There is no word yet on Angelico’s contract status with AEW, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
