Scorpio Sky has confirmed that he recently signed a five-year contract extension with All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
At AEW All Out, Dan Lambert noted that Sky had signed a new deal with the company. Speaking with PWInsider, the former AEW Tag Team Champion made it clear that he doesn’t plan to leave anytime soon.
Confirming that he put pen to paper around the time of the September 5 pay-per-view, Sky said:
“(Tony Khan is) a very, very smart guy. He’s got a memory like no one I’ve ever seen. I mean, you can have a small two-second conversation with him… Two seconds, who can talk in two seconds… But a small 20-second conversation with him in a loud room that you won’t remember the next day, and he’ll remind you of it a month later. ‘Hey, sir, I didn’t forget about this.’ Like, ‘Oh, holy crap. I did. Sorry.’
“Working for him is great. I love it. He’s always shown faith in me, and it’s something that I’ve really truly appreciated. He saw something in me very, very early on. He still sees it, evident by the contract extension that I just signed so I’m going to be with AEW for a long, long time. A lot of that comes down to Tony Khan and his vision. There’s nothing more I can say about it. Nothing but good things to say about working for a guy like that.”
“I did that right around the time of the Pay-Per-View. I’m happy to be with AEW for at least five more years.”
Sky will be in action on Friday’s episode of Rampage, teaming with Ethan Page and Junior Dos Santos to face Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and TNT Champion Sammy Guevara.
Citing his win-loss record as evidence, Sky recently noted that he doesn’t understand why people still underrate him.
