AEW original Frankie Kazarian has reportedly agreed to stick around for a few more years.
If recent reports are accurate, All Elite Wrestling stalwart Frankie Kazarian will likely see out the remainder of his career with the company. According to PWInsiderKazarian has put pen to paper on a new AEW contract, although the specifics of the deal have yet to be revealed.
Kazarian and his former SCU stablemates Scorpio Sky and Christopher Daniels were a part of the first batch of AEW signings when the company launched back in 2019. As we reportedmultiple wrestlers who joined the company at launch signed three-year deals which are now due for renewal as the company approaches its third anniversary.
“The minute the concept of AEW itself was pitched, I was on board”Kazarian said of his initial AEW deal during a 2021 episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast with Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone. “We still have a real tight bond, SCU and The Bucks, and Cody and [Adam] Page. We were all together all the time, and we were kind of on the ground floor of this. It was just one of those things that comes along, and you can not turn down. “
Kaz continued, “The camaraderie we have, the closeness, the way we’ve taken care of, Tony Khan treats us all so well. We’re treated like athletes, and we are fed and we are taking care of. I can not say enough good things. I’ve never felt more respected as a talent in any other wrestling company, and that’s no disrespect to the other companies I’ve for, but this is just on another level. ”
Kazarian and Daniels were the first men to ever hold AEW World Tag Team Championship, so their names will forever be synonymous with AEW. Like Daniels, Kaz is a veteran who understands the business better than most. He’s an asset to the locker room, and Tony Khan was smart to offer him a new deal.
While AEW is still a relatively young wrestling promotion, they’ve already had certain acts that fans may have forgotten existed, like SCU.
