Taking to social media, Angels posted the following statement regarding his AEW departure:

As of June 30th, my AEW contract has expired.

I am nothing but grateful for the two years I spent there. I love AEW. It was/is the best place to ever work. I got to wrestle some of the best wrestlers in the world on a weekly basis, as well as travel to some of the most amazing cities and meet some of the best fans in the world. There are no hard feelings between myself and AEW or Tony Khan.

I had a great time in AEW and would have loved to have stayed, but I am extremely excited for my future in pro-wrestling. I am 24 and I look at this as my wrestling career just beginning. Now I get to show everyone how good I really am. I’m going to grind harder than I ever have before. I’m going to make as many towns as I can, meet as many fans as I can and wrestle as much as I can until I am considered one of the best going today. Thank you all for all the support and kind words and I hope you all will continue to follow my journey.
