Sonny Kiss signed with AEW in February 2019 and was regularly featured on AEW television. Things eventually changed for him as AEW got more talent and Kiss was left on the sidelines. He is no longer part of the company as AEW opted not to renew his contract and now it appears Kiss revealed when he knew his AEW contract wouldn’t be revealed.

AEW featured Sonny Kiss a few times over the past couple of years, but his booking on television simply wasn’t what it once was. He used to have a partnership with Joey Janela, but that also ended abruptly.

Sonny Kiss was removed from the AEW roster page last week and this made fans fear the worst. It was then confirmed by Tony Khan that Sonny Kiss was indeed gone from the company.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Sonny Kiss talked about his AEW departure, revealing that he came to know in August that the company wasn’t going to renew his contract.


So I got the call the last week of August and honestly, it took a long time for it to settle in. It took a long time because I just was in shock. I wasn’t expecting it, and obviously for the longest time throughout the past couple of years of there not being any creative for me, I’ve thought about (it).

We will have to wait and see whether AEW will end up releasing more talent one way or the other, as competition continues to rise. As for Sonny Kiss, it is likely he will find another home soon enough.
