Marko Stunt has been with All Elite Wrestling since the promotion’s inaugural Double or Nothing pay-per-view event in 2019. The 25-year-old worked alongside The Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus).
According to Fightful Select, Stunt could be on his way out of AEW since the promotion doesn’t plan on renewing his contract. Stunt has been taking independent bookings since January.
The outlet said that Stunt was informed of his imminent departure by AEW Christopher Daniels, who oversees talent relations in the company. He was also told that the promotion won’t be renewing his contract.
After reporting recently that Marko Stunt’s AEW is set to expire in May, Fightful Select can confirm that he will be leaving the company.
We’re told that last week, Marko Stunt got the call from AEW talent relations in the form of Christopher Daniels and was informed that the company would not be renewing his contract. It was claimed that Daniels’ cited budget cuts and a large roster as the reason that the deal was not renewed.
Stunt hasn’t appeared on AEW programming in six months, and Daniels also was said to have mentioned that plans had changed for Jurassic Express. Stunt sustained a concussion in October, and was not booked or given a reason why, but did make an effort to reach out to the company to get booked to prove himself for a contract renewal.
We’re told that the split was amicable, and the conversation went well.
It was previously reported that Joey Janela will be on his way out of AEW after his contract expires in May. Janela himself confirmed he won’t resign with the Jacksonville-based promotion.
