On Thursday night, Jimmy Havoc, Sadie Gibbs and Bea Priestley were suddenly removed from the All Elite Wrestling roster page. It then emerged that they had been released by the young promotion.
Chris Jericho commented on Priestley and Gibbs' releases on the latest edition of Chris Jericho's Saturday Night Special.
Le Champion said: "I hate to see anybody lose their jobs and I like both of them. I think they're both really good. Bea's really good and Sadie has great potential. She needs more experience, which she knows, and I think she was about ready to move to Atlanta even but then the pandemic hit and those girls got stuck. I think Bea lives in Japan but also England or whatever and same with Sadie.
"I give Tony Khan credit for continuing to keep as many people on the roster from Europe as he did. I mean, there's a lot of people from Europe that he's still paying and, unfortunately, Bea and Sadie were let go. But I would have to think as long as they keep working and keep honing their craft that when all of this goes away and they're allowed to travel again, who knows? That could be six months from now… Love them both, both great people and hopefully they will be back in AEW again soon."
