‘Pretty’ Peter Avalon was one of the more popular comedy characters in the early days of AEW. Along with ‘The Wingmen,’ he portrayed a sleazy lover boy character who can get under the fans’ skin. Avalon recently claimed that his AEW deal cost him a spot in WWE.
Peter Avalon recently discussed his 2019 professional career options. Numerous professional wrestlers from all around the world were given the chance to become household names when All Elite Wrestling was established in 2019 as a part of a hot new wrestling company.
Peter Avalon, who has participated for the company from the initial Fight For The Fallen occasion in 2019, was one of those names. Avalon recently said in an interview with Fightful that he was in talks with WWE about a potential role on the 205 Live brand when he received his contract offer from AEW.
Well, I go to a lot of people for advice. I have my people there that I’ve been with for a while, in and out of wrestling and everything. I talk to Adam Pearce a lot about my career trajectory and what I should do. Different people, different places, just to see what I should do. The timing of everything was AEW was coming around and that, within the months happening and the talks happening with everybody, Cody reached out and told me to keep May available if I can. As I got more and more information as it came out, I was eventually offered an opportunity with AEW that overlapped with the timing of it and after conversations with certain people, like my people I was previously talking about, telling me to bet on myself.
I went with what was presented to me as the AEW contract, and I took that. So I bet on myself and wanted to be joined with AEW because they had an idea, they had a vision, and it wasn’t just like, ‘Let’s keep talking, let’s keep talking, let’s keep talking.’ It was, ‘Here. Here is something.’ I had EVPs telling me to keep time open, and eventually I’m being pitched a character and then here I am.
Contract season’s coming up for Big P, I guess. Me and my people, I’ve been talking to different people. Honestly, making different phone calls, different phone calls coming to me. It is what it is. I’m playing for a real contract. That’s it. Of course. I’m an AEW original. Dynamite since day one. I want to be an AEW legend. I want to die an AEW legend. Of course. I’m a loyal guy and honestly loyal to a fault, honestly. I see it a lot of times in decisions made in my career. It is what it is. But I’m an AEW original, Dynamite since day one.
Avalon’s involvement in the company has gradually diminished as he now mostly fights on AEW Dark and AEW Dark: Elevation with his Wingmen stable. He disclosed later in the interview that he hopes to quickly land an actual contract with a corporation. Avalon has wrestled for companies like New Japan Pro Wrestling, GCW, and Prestige Wrestling in addition to his participation with AEW in 2022.
