Exclusive: Another AEW Star Finished With Company

Another AEW Star has wrapped up his time with the company this week.

It had previously been reported that Mark Henry’s AEW deal was set to expire, which Henry confirmed that his AEW contract would expire today May 28th, 2024 and that he would not be re-signing with the company. However, he is not the only AEW Star whose contract has expired.

Sources have confirmed to that AEW Star Jake Hager’s contract has also recently expired and that he did not re-sign with All Elite Wrestling making him a free agent. It was also noted to me that the decision was believed to be mutual.

Hager debuted with AEW on October 2nd, 2019 on the premiere episode of Dynamite where he would join The Inner Circle. Hager made his in-ring debut or AEW on February 29th, 2020 at AEW’s Revolution PPV where he defeated Dustin Rhodes. Hager would go on to be part of the Jericho Appreciation Society following the disbanding of The Inner Circle, however he had not been used much since the breakup of the JAS in late 2023.

Jake Hager’s last match in AEW was a loss to Roderick Strong back on the February 23rd, 2024 episode of AEW Rampage.

We will keep you updated if we hear anything more about Jake Hager’s future after recently becoming a free agent.
