Frankie Kazarian Addresses “Not Being Valued” On AEW’s Roster


Impact Wrestling star Frankie Kazarian has opened up about feeling underappreciated during his time with AEW.

Kazarian, one of the first names to sign with AEW, was one-half of the very first AEW World Tag Team Champions, winning the titles with Scorpio Sky in October 2019.


While speaking with Eric Bischoff on a recent AdFreeShows Q&A show, Kazarian addressed leaving AEW in late 2022. He said,

“I wanted to give that time to somebody that would value it. I felt at the time in AEW, my time, my contributions, and my talent was not being valued and that’s okay because I had the opportunity to take my time and give it to somebody else and that’s exactly what I did.

“I’m not a guy that’s wired to sit on the bench, you know? I’m a guy that should be in the starting lineup. It’s not being egotistical to say that because it’s true and I proved that.”

Kazarian is now part of the Impact Wrestling roster and will face KON at tomorrow’s No Surrender 2023 pay-per-view event.
