Another AEW Star Leaving The Company AEW

Following a recent departure, another AEW star and WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson is set to be leaving the company.

UPDATE: In yet ANOTHER update, Jake Hager’s contract has reportedly expired and he is also gone from AEW – find more details on that at this link.

As previously reported, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry has confirmed his departure from All Elite Wrestling after his contract expires at the end of May.

Now, it looks like Henry is not the only name that is set to exit All Elite Wrestling at the end of the month.

During his live episode of the ARN Show, Anderson revealed he is set to leave AEW this Friday (May 31), the last day of his contract.

He said:

“One thing people know that I am very appreciative to have been in this business for 42 years. I’ve often said this business does not owe me anything, I owe it everything.

“Here at the tail end of my career, I’ve been very fortunate to work for AEW and Tony Khan for the last four years, he is a great human being, he’s taken the wrestling business and given it another option and a whole other category of what pro wrestling is perceived to be or can be or will be or has been, so I just wanted to thank you to everyone who worked there, they are all exceptionally great.

“Tony, we appreciate everything you’ve done for the business. The time I have left I want to spend with Brock, because I think Brock has the attitude and he will be a player for somebody, I’ve just got to get him some experience so that’s where I’m going to devote my time is helping to develop Brock and teaching him, and if he comes along like I think he will.

“This coming, May 31, is the last date on my contract, and I just want to say thank you, I appreciate everything and that goes to everybody who works there. I just want to say thank you and see you down the road.”

Arn Anderson debuted in AEW at All Out 2019 and played a key role in Cody Rhodes’ act in the company as part of the Nightmare Family and would accompany Rhodes to the ring as his coach.

Anderson was later briefly an ally to Wardlow during one of his three runs as TNT Champion in 2023.
