Sometimes you need a new job. At tonight’s Impact Wrestling Hard to Kill pay-per-view event, Frankie Kazarian announced that he had signed a new, long-term contract with the promotion.
Kazarian cut a promo during the show, stating that after wrestling from Impact, he had to decide whether to remain complacent and be with “people he thought were his friends” or push himself and he chose to push himself.
According to a report from PWInsider, after his 40-minute match with Josh Alexander, Kazarian asked AEW to be released and it was granted. It was said to be a completely amicable situation based on Kazarian wanting to push himself harder as he’s getting closer to the latter point of his career. In Impact, he’d had a chance to be more in the mix than he’d likely be able to get the opportunity to do in AEW, given how massive that company’s roster is.
It was said that Kazarian “did business the right way” and would be welcomed back into their locker room anytime.
I absolutely love this for him. He’s one of the most talented wrestlers out there and was being wasted in AEW’s, since you never know who is going to get TV time from week to week. I hope that he has one great final run in him and can show the world just how wonderful of a talent he really is!
