Alicia Atout was associated with AEW during the early days of the company, but then she disappeared. The company continued without her and she moved onto MLW. Some time later she can now speak about her short time while working with AEW.
Cage Side Seats recently spoke to Alicia Atout about her time in the pro wrestling business and AEW came up. She explained that they had her in to work All In and then she did Double Or Nothing. To be fair, All In was a show that they did in association with ROH.
Something happened after that, but Alicia Atout didn’t go into specifics. She simply said that things “went a little cold,” so she moved on
“I had done All In and then Double or Nothing, the first two events, and I thought there was interest and then at some point, things went a little cold. Then I had interest coming in from other companies and brands and it just got to the point where — yes, anyone who signs there it’s a great opportunity — other things started coming my way. I was at a crossroads where do you wait for who knows how long or do you grab life by the horns and go for it. I ended up doing a couple of other things, a couple of other collaborations. “Shortly after, MLW reached out. As soon as I got into that locker room, it just felt right. I’ve been in many locker rooms in the past and this is the only one I’ve ever felt completely comfortable in. Just 100 percent. I’ll always be thankful to The Bucks and Cody for those opportunities and I’ll still Cody to this day when something cool happens to him or Brandi, but I’m happy with how everything did work out.”
We’ll have to see if Alicia Atout and AEW ever link back up. At this stage it seems that Alicia Atout found a new home in MLW and it might be a while before she circles back around to All Elite Wrestling. If anything, it sounds like she has no sour grapes.
