AEW Wrestlers Upset With Lack Of TV Time?

Frustrations over television time boil over amongst AEW stars.

Sonny Kiss

Contracted AEW wrestlers Ethan Page, Brian Cage, and Sonny Kiss have hinted at frustration with their lack of activity on social media.

Page was the most overt. Tweeting a match graphic for tonight's AEW Rampage bout with Leon Ruffin, the American Top Team affiliate was sarcastic in tone, saying being featured was a "nice change of pace at work" and that he "can't wait to do this again in 5 weeks":-

'All Ego' has worked 13 bouts on AEW programming in 2022, with his latest Dynamite clash coming against Orange Cassidy on 29 June. The bulk of his in-ring work has taken place on YouTube shows Dark and Dark: Elevation, though he featured regularly alongside Scorpio Sky and Dan Lambert during Sky's TNT Title reign.


Elsewhere, long-missing Embassy member Brian Cage wasn't as direct:-

Cage's tweet drew a response from Sonny Kiss:-

Last Saturday's ROH Death Before Dishonor show saw Cage's stable, Tully Blanchard Enterprises, acquired by Prince Nana for an Embassy revival. Brian and stablemates Kaun and Toa Liona defeated Alex Zayne, Blake Christian, and Tony Deppen on the show. The big man hasn't appeared on AEW programming since October 2021.

Kiss, meanwhile, wrestles almost exclusively on Dark and Elevation these days. His last Dynamite bout was a 26-second squash defeat to Kenny Omega in October 2020.
