Former AEW Star Says ‘The Way They Like Wrestling Presented’ Wasn’t Happening In The Company

Former AEW Star Says ‘The Way They Like Wrestling Presented’ Wasn’t Happening In The Company AEW

Former AEW World Tag Team Champion Frankie Kazarian made his return to IMPACT Wrestling last year, where he announced that he had re-signed with the company.

Kazarian left AEW after three years with the company, and speaking on the Kurt Angle Show, he has now explained why he left.

Kazarian explained that he left due to AEW not being the vision he wanted, or presenting wrestling in the way that he likes.

He said:

“When I left last year, I still had two years left on my contract when I left. I made the decision to leave. I still had two years left. I probably could have been there much longer. I re-signed at the end of 2021 and hindsight being what it is, I probably shouldn’t have, but again, AEW, I was there since before day one. I was there when this was a germ of an idea. I was there discussing this company when they didn’t even have initials attached to them in these rooms with Cody and The Bucks and Page and Sky and C.D. So again, I was committed. I was like I want to try to, you know, ride this thing out.

“It just became apparent to me that what I like and what I appreciate about pro wrestling and the way I like it presented was not happening at AEW, and that’s not an indictment of them. It’s just what they perceive as good television wrestling and what I do are different things, and just the business model, everything.

“Again, it was one of those things I feel, and still do to this day, that I feel that I have so much more to offer than what I was being utilized for in AEW. So I bet on myself and I made the decision to walk away and I am very thankful I did. It’s by far the best decision I could have made where I am right now.”
