The recent unexpected releases of several superstars from the AEW roster have stirred up intrigue and speculation within the wrestling community. The rationale behind Tony Khan’s decision to let go of these talents remains shrouded in mystery, leaving fans and industry insiders pondering the motives behind the surprising move. In light of these developments, one recently released AEW star highlighted the irony of the situation.

The first to be let go was Stu Grayson, followed swiftly by AEW ring announcer Dasha Kuret. In total, approximately 10 stars have been released from AEW thus far. Alongside Grayson and Kuret, Parker Boudreaux, Slim J, Gravity, Anthony Henry, Jora Johl, Jose The Assistant, and the Boys have also been added to the list of departures from the company.

Henry’s recent stint with AEW was cut short due to an unfortunate injury he suffered during an independent wrestling match in March. The injury, a broken jaw, not only sidelined Henry but also led to his withdrawal from the AEW Tag Team title tournament, where he was set to compete alongside his partner, JD Drake.

Before his injury, Henry had been increasing his presence in AEW, making more frequent appearances alongside Drake on Ring of Honor TV. However, the injury setback has put a halt to his momentum in the promotion.


Henry took to Twitter and uploaded a screenshot of the top selling t-shirts from AEW in the past week, pointing out the fact that The Workhorsemen t-shirt was among the list.

”Oh, the irony…”

Anthony Henry is also unsure about whether he will continue to be professional wrestler. It remains to be seen what will become of Anthony Henry in the coming months.
