‘Pretty’ Peter Avalon was one of the more popular comedy characters in the early days of AEW. Along with ‘The Wingmen,’ Avalon portrays a sleazy loverboy character who can get under the fans’ skin. After his contract expired in January, many assumed that Avalon would be leaving AEW.
Avalon has been taking independent bookings and working on several other projects, but he’s not done with Tony Khan’s company just yet. Many fans don’t even realize that he has been wrestling fairly regularly on the YouTube series, “Dark.” Peter recently clarified his status with AEW.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Peter Avalon said fans can still see him, Cezar Bononi, JD Drake, and Ryan Nemeth on Dark. He made light of the group’s extremely long losing streak. Avalon said that with little promotion for the faction, many don’t know where to watch them perform.
“You can see me and (Ryan) Nemeth and the rest of the Wingmen, Cezar and JD usually main-eventing Dark. Weird how it works out where people wonder where we are at. We are not on the flyers or any of the advertising. Hell, it’s hard. But it’s funny that we will main event most episodes of Dark and we are now 0-672 to the Dark Order and to The Best Friends. We are doing really well against both teams.”
Avalon said he is trying to keep busy both inside and outside of the ring. He has a commercial agent and is working on films, music videos, social media, and the independent wrestling scene. He is even doing some booking from time to time.
Peter Avalon remains a staple of AEW, even though his role is dramatically diminished from what it once was. Fans who miss seeing him on Dynamite can check out a large assortment of matches he wrestled on Dark. Time will tell if he makes it back to TV, but even with a limited AEW schedule, Peter is always working on something new.
