AEW has a lot of talent that have been with the company since the very beginning and that included QT Marshall. However, he will not be sticking with AEW as 2023 comes to a close Now, Tony Khan addressed Marshal’s imminent departure and made it clear that the door is open for Marshall to return one day.
The past few months haven’t gone well for Tony Khan’s company whatsoever. After all, QT Marshall announced his resignation from AEW through social media post. A current AEW star also believes QT Marshall leaving the company is a huge loss for talent.
While speaking during the post-AEW Worlds End media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan talked about QT Marshall’s imminent departure. Khan put over Marshall in a big way, describing how fundamental he was to AEW and that any company would be lucky to have him. Finally, Khan made it clear that the door is open for Marshall to return one day.
”QT Marshall, his contract’s up. The door would always be open for QT to come back in any capacity, wresting, coaching, I know he wants to go out and apply his trade. I know he wants to go out and focus on his wrestling career, but he’s also been a huge part of AEW in addition to the wrestling, he’s been a great coach. He’s done great work internationally, I consider him a great friend. QT’s contract his up but I would welcome him back here anytime and I think any wrestling company in the world would be lucky to have him. Anybody that has QT is very fortunate.”
Marshall got external interest beyond AEW, contemplating plans involving the Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling trademark earlier this year. He openly expressed a desire to compete as an active competitor even now.
We will have to wait and see what the future holds for QT Marshall, now that his AEW departure is imminent. In the end, the company will move on without him and that’s just how things work in the business.
