This week, Alan Angels spoke with Fightful, talking about AEW not re-signing him:

“I was told about a month and a half ago that they are not going to re-sign me," Angels said.

"They did offer me a per-appearance which I decided not to take, just solely based off what I thought was best for me. I feel there is more room to grow outside of AEW right now at this point in my career."

"It’s nothing against AEW or Tony Khan or any of the higher-ups in the business. It’s a personal thing. I feel that going on the indies and showing people what I can really do, and showing people that I’m a good wrestler will raise my stock."

"I’m not saying it’s impossible to do that in AEW, but I guess the perception of how fans perceive Alan Angels is that I’m the bottom guy in Dark Order. I feel I can change that outside of AEW. It’s possible in AEW, but I feel it would take longer. On top of that, I never got to have a great Indie career. I was on the Indies for three years, got lucky, and got scooped up."

"As a wrestling fan, being an Indie wrestler and doing cool ass Indies shows is a thing I want to do. There are plenty of places to make money in pro wrestling right now. That’s not to say that I won’t be back in AEW. Maybe I will, I don’t know, but that’s pretty much it. They offered me something and I felt it was better for me not to. That’s all it was.”
