Sonny Kiss Unsure Why AEW Vignettes Were Dropped, Wants To Be Involved In A Storyline
"A nice storyline would be great for us, that's what I'm looking forward to, more so than a championship match or getting the titles."
Back in the Summer of 2020, Joey Janela and Sonny Kiss were featured in vignettes on Dynamite. The pair were seen driving around an unnamed city and they ended up getting into a fight at a gas station during one episode.
The vignettes were suddenly dropped after a few weeks, though, and Janela and Kiss have spent the past several months teaming together on Dark and Dynamite. They have picked up a number of wins on the YouTube show, but they have also been used as fodder for more prominently featured tag teams.
During an appearance on a Pro Wrestling Junkies Q&A, Kiss noted he doesn't know why the vignettes were dropped, but he wants to be involved in a storyline on AEW TV.
"A nice storyline would be great for us, that's what I'm looking forward to, more so than a championship match or getting the titles. If we get the titles, I want to be in an actual story with the titles. Being involved in a story, more of the vignettes, please," Kiss said.
"The official team name for us was Joey & Sonny or Sonny & Joey, whatever. They just never used it as the actual team. The idea, when we did the vignette, was supposed to be based on a sitcom. At the end of the vignette, it says Sonny & Joey, and that was the original team name. Basically, giving a sitcom feel or like Jay & Silent Bob. That's where we were supposed to go with it, I don't know why we didn't do more vignettes if it wasn't warranted or needed.
"That's what we want a lot more of. I know Dynamite doesn't have as much time and you have to get everyone on, I totally understand that. With Elevation coming, more opportunities will be coming. We're fine waiting our turn. When we get it, we'll be ready for it."
