Report: Dark Talent Departs AEW

An AEW Dark talent is finished with the promotion

An AEW Dark talent is no longer with the promotion. 

Joey Janela departed All Elite Wrestling after his contract expired at the end of April but The Bad Boy hadn't been booked by the promotion since Dark tapings in mid-January, with his final match being a loss to Lee Moriarty.

Janela had been accompanied to the ring by IFBB Pro bodybuilder Kayla Rossi since September of 2021 but her appearances dried up after AEW stopped booking the independent wrestling star.

In an update, Fightful Select reported that Rossi had been done with AEW 'quite a while prior' to Janela's contract expiring as she was never signed to a full-time deal with the promotion. 

Sources noted she was offered a trainee contract but ultimately passed on the deal which resulted in both parties going their separate ways. There was no heat from either side following her exit.

If Rossi will continue in professional wrestling remains to be seen although Fightful noted she has considered performing on the independents.
