All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star Scorpio Sky has revealed that his current contract with the promotion expires this year.
Speaking with talkSPORT, Sky explained that his match with Sting at Double Or Nothing was big, not only because of Sting, but also because he needs to prove his worth with his contract date approaching.
He said (this was before the match had happened):
“This is a big match on pay-per-view, I know it’s a television business now and more people are going to see your matches on television, but I am an old school fan in the sense that a pay-per-view match is the pinnacle and the top place you want to be.
“It’s a highlight match on pay-per-view. I’m looking forward to this opportunity and many more. It’s a contract year for me and it’s time for me to show what I’m worth. All professional athletes, we have to go out and show what we’re worth.
“That’s from a status standpoint and everything else involved. When you get opportunities on the big stage you have to hit it out of the park. Not everyone can do that. Not everyone is a big match player and can come up clutch in big moment. I am someone that can.”
Sky and his tag team partner Ethan Page came up short and lost to Sting and Darby Allin this past Sunday, but it was a great match and really everybody came out of it looking better than they did beforehand.
Sky was positioned as one of the top potential talents in AEW from the outset of the promotion, and while that momentum has somewhat fizzled out, you have to imagine there are still big plans for him.
