Slim J Reacts To His AEW Release, Mercedes Martinez HOF Induction, Bailey/Slamovich, Xplosion


Slim J was released by AEW on Monday, and the wrestler reacted to his release, tweeting,

“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 sh*t 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.”

GameChanger Wrestling (GCW) announced that former ROH Women’s World Champion Mercedes Martinez will be inducted into the 2024 Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame by Lexie Fyfe on Sunday, April 7.
