Scorpio Sky confirms that he inked a new deal with All Elite Wrestling.
During the AEW All Out BUY-IN, American Top Team’s Dan Lambert stated that Scorpio Sky signed a five-year extension with AEW. Sky confirmed that while speaking to PWInsider. He told the site that he’ll be with AEW for at least the next five years.
Scorpio mentioned the contract extension when he was discussing what it has been like working with Tony Khan. Sky thinks Khan sees something in him and it’s evident by the contract extension.
I wish I knew what made him tick. He’s a special kind of guy. He obviously has a vision, which we’ve seen many, many, many times. He’s proven that-that vision is clear and when you see it come to light, good things happen. Good things like AEW, good things like we’ve seen in AEW, the talent he’s been able to attract even before the big names that have come in this year. If you look from day one, bringing in the Young Bucks, bringing in SCU, bringing in Chris Jericho and Cody and Hangman and Kenny, from day one, he’s had his eye on talent. This is a guy that loves the wrestling business, and it comes through like that. He’s not in this business to make money. He’s not in this business for clout. He’s not a money mark. He’s a guy that loves the wrestling business. I think that’s why people got behind AEW and that’s why people get behind Tony. Whenever Tony walks out on the stage, people cheer and bow and chant his name because he’s one of them, and he’s giving the fans what they want to see.
He’s a very, very smart guy. He’s got a memory like no one I’ve ever seen. I mean, you can have a small two-second conversation with him… Two seconds, who can talk in two seconds… But a small 20-second conversation with him in a loud room that you won’t remember the next day, and he’ll remind you of it a month later. ‘Hey, sir, I didn’t forget about this.’ Like, ‘Oh, holy crap. I did. Sorry.’ Working for him is great. I love it. He’s always shown faith in me, and it’s something that I’ve really truly appreciated. He saw something in me very, very early on. He still sees it, evident by the contract extension that I just signed so I’m going to be with AEW for a long, long time. A lot of that comes down to Tony Khan and his vision. There’s nothing more I can say about it. Nothing but good things to say about working for a guy like that.
I did that right around the time of the Pay-Per-View . I’m happy to be with AEW for at least five more years.
Elsewhere during the conversation, Sky said he doesn’t understand why he continues to fall into the category of being ‘underrated’. Sky said he has a better record than the AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and TNT Champion Sammy Guevara on top of having one of the best records in AEW.
I take nothing away from those guys . They’re both very, very talented in their own ways, but I keep falling into this weird category where people underrate me, and I don’t quite know why. But I mean, if you look at my in-ring ability and my talents, I always bring it. It shows on the record too. I’m 11-1 as a singles wrestler. I’m 10-1 as a tag team wrestler. I have a better record than the world champion. I have a better record than the TNT Champion. I’ve got one of the best records overall in the entire company, and I’ve had one of the highest winning percentages since day one in AEW. So I don’t know why people underrate me because the numbers don’t lie. If you look at the numbers, if you look at the analytics, the analytics show Scorpio Sky kicks ass, and he wins more often than he doesn’t. So take nothing away from me, and I take nothing away from Sammy or Jake Hager. But if you’re stepping in the ring against me with the caliber of resume that I bring and Ethan Page, who has never been pinned in AEW… Again, I repeat that. And Junior Dos Santos, who’s a knockout artist… I don’t think it’s going to end very well for you.
Sky is scheduled to compete on the 10/15 Rampage and he’ll be teaming with UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos and Ethan Page to face Chris Jericho, Jake Hager and TNT Champion Sammy Guevara in a Trios match.
