All three talents react to their exit(s) from AEW. 

As reported by Fightful and PWInsider, there were 10 names released from the AEW talent roster on Monday. Those names are: Anthony Henry, The Boys (Brandon Tate & Brent Tate), Stu Grayson, Dasha Kuret, Gravity, Parker Boudreaux, Slim J, Jose the Assistant and Jora Johl. 

Both Jose and Slim J reacted to their releases on X. Jose posted a tweet of an hourglass emoji and attached to it was a video of Cody Rhodes saying his, ‘What do you guys wanna talk about?’ line. 

Slim J went on to release the following statement

I’m grateful for the opportunity to have worked for AEW. Unfortunately yesterday was no April fools joke. I appreciate @AriyaDaivari for always bringing my name up and believing in me. @CapriceColeman you always put me over. As did @WilliamBehrens Thank you

Thank you to the fans that supported me. My gimmick was trash. I get that. I knew that. My work wasn’t though. I worked my shoot job through both contracts with AEW. My role there was to act rich. I’ve always been far from that in real life. Promise that.

All I wanted to do once I was signed. Was to get my wife and daughter out of the shit hole we live in. They’re my everything by far.i failed. Does it mean I quit. Not at all. Mouths to feed and I’m broke asf. So I’m looking for a second, second job. Stop sleeping on me.

Anthony Henry, who is sidelined with a fractured jaw, posted the following

The amount of support I am receiving during this very difficult time is amazing, and I appreciate all of it.

I don’t know what is next for me. I don’t know if wrestling is something I still want to pursue. I am devastated.

Regarsless, I am always a #workhorsemen

AEW is scheduled to present their next episode of Dynamite on 4/3 and they’ll be taping Collision on that same night.
