That would be a change of pace. AEW has shaken up the wrestling world by allowing a lot more wrestlers a chance to appear on mainstream television. That is the kind of thing that fans have been wanting to see for a long time now and AEW has provided that platform. Now though, a wrestler seems to be wanting to perform elsewhere, despite being an AEW regular.
AEW’s Pretty Peter Avalon has announced that he is now available for all independent dates and appearances going forward. This announcement leaves his AEW status unclear, though Avalon wrestled at the most recent set of AEW Dark television tapings, teaming with JD Drake in a loss to Orange Cassidy and Wheeler Yuta. Nothing in his announcement says or suggests that he has left AEW or will be anytime soon. Avalon has not wrestled on Dynamite in nearly a year, but has wrestled on the company’s streaming events. He has also been wrestling on the independent circuits on occasion in recent months.

Opinion: I’m not sure what this means for Avalon’s future, but it is the kind of thing that you might be seeing more often going forward. At the end of the day, AEW is not going to be able to keep all of its wrestlers under contract forever and some people are going to want to leave. I don’t know if Avalon is leaving, but he is certainly opening things up for other opportunities in the future. You might be seeing that more often, and that could make things interesting.
What do you think of Avalon? Who do you see leaving AEW when their deals expire? Let us know in the comments below.
