Joey Ryan has been teasing a big announcement regarding his future. According to a report by news site SoCalUncensored, Ryan has turned down an offer to join All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
“We have confirmed with multiple sources that Joey Ryan has turned down a contract offer from All Elite Wrestling,” the report reads.
The news is surprising, since Ryan appears regularly on Being The Elite and had a memorable role at All In last September.
“Everything will be answered Thursday,” Ryan said regarding his status.
The official word regarding his future will be told Bar Wrestling’s Pickle Jar Hero show later this week.

Ryan is reported to have turned down a WWE offer recently as well.

The report continued to say Ryan would have accepted the offer earlier in his career. At 39, however, Ryan is not looking to take a pay cut to start in WWE.
Ryan was released from his Lucha Underground contract in March. His release followed the filing of legal action by lawyer Andre Verdun. K
