Report: Talents Unhappy In AEW

Unhappy talents backstage in AEW

MJF seemingly isn't the only unhappy talent in All Elite Wrestling.

In recent weeks it has emerged that Maxwell Jacob Friedman remains frustrated over his AEW contract despite him and Tony Khan having held talks to clear the air that reportedly went smoothly. AEW are said to be willing to pay Friedman in line with other top stars and the promotion have made overtures about beginning negotiations, but no talks over a new deal had been held as of last week. 

While it is known that MJF is frustrated, Voices of Wrestling have reported that a source within the AEW locker room told them Friedman isn't the only talent 'feeling some level of discontent.' Common frustrations are due to a 'chaotic' atmosphere backstage stemming from talent not knowing finishes or angles until close to TV shows going on the air. How future matches have been set up has also been a cause of frustration. 

The issues in AEW aren't considered to be on the same level as WWE's Monday Night Raw rewrites but a source did still note that "every single one of us is pulling our hair out."
