The Blade Speaks About AEW Helping Him Get Through Mental Health Issues

The Blade is a very prominent wrestler in AEW and he recently spoke about AEW helping him deal with his mental health issues. The Blade had some feuds with popular AEW stars ever since he was signed with the company. He spoke about his mental health issues on Instagram after he posted a picture of himself with his wife, The Bunny.

The Blade Speaks About Taking Time Off to Recover From Mental Health Issues

“Hello, my name is Jesse Guilmette, and I struggle with anxiety, depression, and confidence issues,” Blade said. “I first noticed an extreme spike in these feelings during the pandemic, which also made me realize I’ve suffered from these issues all my life.

I just didn’t recognize what they were until then. So I reached out for help from some friends and family, tried a couple of therapists, and thought I had it under control from self-management. Until I had another spike recently.

So I took more drastic measures this time and talked to the executives at All Elite Wrestling. “Getting the courage to speak up to them was more difficult than it sounds, and I’d like to express a huge thank you to Doc Sampson, Megha Parekh, Tony Khan, and everyone at AEW.

When I’m not feeling the best, I simply remember that EVERY response I’ve received from the people I’ve opened up to has been incredibly positive and supportive. It feels good to tell you this and to take off my mask.

It helps to talk about my struggles instead of holding them inside, and I’m feeling more confident and comfortable around people. Thank you for listening. I’m sorry if I’ve been distant lately. I love you and I can’t wait to see you soon”.

The blade was part of The Butcher and The Blade in the AEW. The Butcher was his tag team partner and he is also known as Andy Williams in the band Every Time I Die. They are members of The Hardy Family Office Stable and will fight the Lucha Brothers for the AEW Tag Team Titles in September.

To recover from his mental health issues, Blade has taken some time off and does not appear on AEW TV regularly. His last match took place on the 6th of October at AEW Dark: Elevation. He was part of the Hardy Family Office and they managed to beat Brock Anderson, Chuck Taylor, Lee Johnson, and Wheeler Yuta that night.
