Sonny Kiss, a familiar face in the AEW (All Elite Wrestling) roster since its inception in 2019, is no longer associated with the company. This comes as a result of AEW's chief, Tony Khan, choosing not to extend her contract this month.
While Kiss was a recurring feature on "AEW Dark" and "AEW Dark: Elevation," her appearances on the flagship show "AEW Dynamite" dwindled over time. Taking to Twitter/X recently, the former Trustbusters member reflected on her journey in AEW and voiced her anticipation for what the future might hold in her free-agent status.
Harwood's Heartfelt Tribute
In the midst of Sonny's introspection, AEW World Tag Team Champion, Dax Harwood, stepped in to send a heartening message of support. Harwood's profound words read, "In wrestling, and indeed in life, the narrative often revolves around overcoming adversity.
I truly cannot think of anyone who has faced and conquered more challenges than you, Sonny. You've emerged as an authentic role model for many. A gifted athlete, a compassionate soul, and a radiant human - you deserve every accolade and opportunity.
I eagerly await your next move in the wrestling sphere, but more so, your strides in life. My family and I hold immense respect and affection for you. Always remember, should you need anything, I'm here. Much love." Sonny Kiss, throughout her time at AEW, had notable moments including eight crucial "AEW Dynamite" matches.
One of the most significant was her TNT Championship bout against Cody Rhodes. Fans fondly remember her alliance with Joey Janela during the pandemic phase. However, the duo's camaraderie hit a roadblock, culminating in a fierce No Disqualification match by 2021's close, where Janela emerged victorious.
More recently, Kiss shifted her sights to "ROH on HonorClub," partnering with Jeeves Kay and Slim J from The Trustbusters. As the wrestling world turns its gaze, there is undeniable curiosity about Sonny Kiss's next move in the industry, bolstered by the warm support from fellow professionals like Harwood.
