Jack Evans is leaving All Elite Wrestling.

The TH2 man confirmed the news himself on Twitter a short while ago, stating that he will not be re-signed by the promotion when his contract expires towards the end of April. Calling his time with the company "fun and enjoyable", Evans thanked AEW (and its fans) on his way out:-

In a follow-up tweet, Evans theorised that he was being let go due to a perceived performance drop-off following an injury and long battle with COVID:-

Evans had been with AEW since 2019, with his signing confirmed that May. Billed The Hybrid2, he and partner Angelico debuted at the inaugural Double Or Nothing pay-per-view later that month, where they were defeated by Best Friends, and played a semi-prominent role in the company's young tag division. Though the duo's rank had fallen off over the years, they were recently part of the Hardy Family Office stable - with Jack losing his locks as part of this, dropping a Hair vs. Hair match to Orange Cassidy in September 2019.

That was Evans' last appearance on AEW television. Since then, he had exclusively wrestled on Dark, with his last outing taking place at the YouTube show's 5 February 2022 tapings.

Most recently, the 40-year-old has been working dates for Mexican indie group RIOT.

Once one of the most prominent and influential high-flyers on the American independent scene, Evans had been primarily competing in Mexico prior to joining AEW.
