Sonny Kiss Gone From AEW

Sonny Kiss is no longer with AEW

Following her removal from the AEW roster page over the weekend, Tony Khan has confirmed that Sonny Kiss is no longer signed with All Elite Wrestling after the promotion opted not to renew her contract. 

"I really like Sonny Kiss. We have a roster of over 100 wrestlers now across AEW. Sonny is a great wrestler. I've done a lot to keep the locker room stable and I have a lot of people that I not only keep under contract, but I've done well to not do major mass layoffs and let 20-30 people go at a time. I can't renew every single contract in AEW, it would be impossible and with such a big roster and limited amount of TV spots, I think Sonny Kiss is a great wrestler and had a lot of potential from the very beginning and still has a lot of potential. I think Sonny Kiss could certainly be back," Khan said during the post-All Out media scrum.

"We've seen people go on, do exciting stuff, and come back like Stu Grayson. You never know what the future holds for Sonny Kiss. I think Sonny Kiss has a lot of talent and I wish him the best and I hold him in high regard. It's true that I did not renew that contract, but not because I don't like Sonny. Every opportunity Sonny has had, I've put thought into it. With a huge crew, it's hard to get everyone on TV. One thing that's been a challenge is losing Dark and Elevation. The roster is growing and growing, it's much bigger than the original roster, which Sonny was part of. Sonny and others who are not with AEW anymore, we'll keep an eye on them and I'd be open to bringing them back if something opens up or I get an idea for a story or if anybody has an idea for a story that I would do or they get hot and I get interested."

Sonny Kiss was an AEW original, signing with the company in 2019. She was featured on TV during the first year of AEW but she was not booked on TV for a long stretch between October 2020 and August 2022, only working the promotion's YouTube shows Dark and Dark: Elevation. Kiss turned heel and joined the Trustbusters in the Summer of 2022 which led to a brief resurgence but she was soon once again only booked on the YouTube shows and Ring of Honor. 

Her last match while under contract took place at the July 22 taping of ROH TV where Dalton Castle and The Boys defeated Kiss, Slim J, and Jeeves Kay.
