Sonny Kiss’ AEW contract expired recently and she was removed from the roster page on AEW’s website over a week ago.

During the All Out media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that Kiss’ contract with AEW wasn’t renewed.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Kiss talked about her time in AEW and said that parting ways with the company was unexpected and heartbreaking. She also spoke about her struggles with the booking in the promotion.

“Definitely a question that a lot of people asked, like, ‘Where is Sonny? Where is Sonny?’ I understand. It hurt to go places and there was always the question that was asked. Like I would be in a super market or at training, whatever, and it’s just like, ‘We don’t see you.’ But I’m feeling, it’s like a heartbreak. It’s been kind of rough because this was everything I’ve always wanted to do, it’s a dream.

I’ve worked so very hard, I worked tirelessly for this not to happen. Dustin Rhodes, who’s been my mentor and trainer, he’s a trainer for all the women at AEW, and every single time I got sent to TV, I was there hours, hours before doors open, I worked my a$$ off every single week to make sure this didn’t happen. So yeah it’s heartbreaking.

I got the call the last week of August. Honestly, it took a long time for it to settle in. It took a long time because I just was in shock. I wasn’t expecting it. Obviously, for the longest time, throughout the past couple years of there not being any creative for me, I’ve thought about it. I thought about everything, like why? What am I doing wrong?

I would beg sometimes to go to TV. Can I just go to train with Dustin [Rhodes], please? Just something. Because I wanted to work. I never was resting on my laurels, I never was just okay with not doing anything, I never was okay with that. So yeah, when I got the call, I was very shocked.”

Kiss hadn’t wrestled for AEW since March and was mainly used on AEW Dark and AEW Dark: Elevation shows. She did not have a match on television since an episode of Rampage in August 2022, and last wrestled on Dynamite in October 2020 in a match against Kenny Omega.
