Bea Priestley says she's headed back to Japan in the wake of her release from All Elite Wrestling.
On August 13th, 2020, it was reported that AEW released Jimmy Havoc, Sadie Gibbs, and Bea Priestley. Gibbs commented on her release, Jimmy Havoc is currently in rehab following sexual misconduct allegations, and now, Bea Priestley is taking to Twitter to thank everybody behind AEW for her opportunity while also commenting on how difficult COVID-19 has made it for her as a United Kingdom based-wrestler trying to work in America.
I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work on such a big platform with such a great roster.— Bea Priestley ビープリーストリー (@BeaPriestley) August 14, 2020
I wish @AEWrestling the biggest success & hope that everyone will stay safe & healthy. I will miss you all --
But until then.. -- ---- pic.twitter.com/AoWrMfLpj0
This is a difficult time for everyone globally, & I completely understand the circumstances that COVID 19 has presented.— Bea Priestley ビープリーストリー (@BeaPriestley) August 14, 2020
I’m sure once travel bans are lifted, you’ll be seeing me again on American soil.
Special thank you @dustinrhodes & @KennyOmegamanX for taking your time to coach me, and thank you @TonyKhan , @CodyRhodes , Brandi and @youngbucks for giving me a chance -- I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me— Bea Priestley ビープリーストリー (@BeaPriestley) August 14, 2020
