Kiss had been with AEW since its inaugural year of 2019. Ahead of AEW All Out, Kiss’ profile was removed from AEW’s roster page on their website. Fightful Select reported that Kiss was no longer with the company. At the AEW All Out post-show media scrum, Tony Khan confirmed that Kiss’ contract was not being renewed.
On September 10, Sonny Kiss posted a statement about her time in AEW coming to an end. She also looked forward to the future.
The statement is as follows:
“4 years of living my dream, traveling, making everlasting friendships, working with my childhood heroes, growing into the human I’ve become right before everyone’s eyes, and of course, being part of some historical events with groundbreaking wrestling promotion: All Elite Wrestling (AEW). I have made quite a few mistakes along the way. But I also have learned some valuable lessons, too. I am incredibly grateful for it all. In December, I’ll be 30 years old with 10 years of wrestling under my belt. The fun part is: I haven’t nearly touched the surface of what I am capable of.
“I knew my journey in pro wrestling would not be an easy one, regardless of my talents. The best part of it all is that I showed people like me that anything is possible when you’re working your ass off for it. It will not come easy, but it WILL come. Sometimes you have to fall all the way down to reignite that fiery passion again. So, now what? I’m the Concrete Rose, Sonny Kiss, and I am a free agent. I am SO ready for this next chapter. Let’s continue to break those barriers down, shatter those glass ceilings, and make $h!t happen! Where to next?”
Now that I've had time to reflect…
