Sonjay Dutt is now a part of All Elite Wrestling, but that move didn’t come without an interesting situation. He continues to be an important factor in the storyline involving Jay Lethal or Satnam Singh. Sonjay also worked with the WWE for some time, and now he is coming clean about why he left Vince McMahon’s former company.

On a recent episode of “The Sessions with Renee Paquette,” Sonjay talked about what went wrong and why did he decide to make a move from the wrestling juggernaut. Sonjay considered the lack of creative freedom as his major reason behind making the call. He confirmed that the experience he has helped him shape up things in Impact Wrestling.

So, it has been now — 2012 is when I first kind of worked in the office at TNA and Impact Wrestling. So, for 10 years now, like a lot of people, especially if you’ve worked with me in WWE where I was just a match producer, and that is kind of what WWE is where, ‘Okay, this is your job,’ which kind of was part of the reason why I wanted to quit. I was like, ‘Look, I know in my heart of hearts I can do more than just be a match producer,’ because before WWE I was at Impact, and what you see now I did at Impact. So, I had all these experiences and when I got to WWE it was like, ‘Okay, you have this one segment, and you’re gonna produce it, and then that’s it.’

Sonay Dutt never wanted to be stuck with just a match or a segment. He wanted to be a bigger person, and that wasn’t getting addressed when he was working with the WWE.


Dutt gets more television time in AEW, and he is one of the best in the company who can do whatever with what he is handed. It would be interesting to see where his journey takes him down the line.
