Joey made his first appearance for AEW in 2019 at Double Or Nothing.

Before that, he was a very well-known star on the US indie wrestling scene. He admitted that he is feeling a little nervous about returning to the indies. “I was a little scared, getting back into the independent wrestling world and making money,” Janela said.

“You take those things for granted, you’re getting a paycheck every two weeks. A pretty good paycheck. In your head you’re like ‘Sh-t, when this is over, this is gonna disappear.’ But I was born a hustler in this business.

I was scared to get back into that world but now I am no longer scared. “Back in the day before AEW, I was going out to wrestle for basically nothing,” Janela continued. “I was just doing it because I love it, I would do 3-4 shows a week.

I would rack up small paydays from the promoters, plus my merchandise and I’d be satisfied and I’d be making a lot of money. But now my price has gone significantly up so I didn’t know if the promoters were gonna welcome me back with open arms.

“But recently I’ve realized that the promoters know the situation, they realize what the situation is gonna be and they’ve been hitting me up big time. They say ‘We want you to come back here. We want you to wrestle some of the newer guys we have.

We want you to wrestle some of the older guys. We want Joey Janela back.' ” Joey stated that he is happy with what he achieved during his time with the company. “It was a learning experience, and I am gonna say this in the most positive way possible without looking negative,” Joey Janela said.

“Those three years with AEW was developmental for the rest of my career. I am so much sharper now, not only in-ring but business-wise, I’ve learned so much in those three years. Now not only am I sharper myself, in all facets of the wrestling business, but also I can go to a young guy, I could go to a Nick Wayne and teach him stuff, of the stuff that I’ve learned in those three years”.
