Bobby Fish Addresses Rumor He Asked Adam Cole And Kyle O'Reilly To Leave AEW

Bobby Fish gives his side of the story.

Fish left AEW at the end of August after the two sides couldn't agree on a new contact. During his time in AEW, Fish was aligned with Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole in the Undisputed Elite. After his AEW departure, it was rumored that Fish had asked Cole and O'Reilly to leave AEW and join him in WWE.

Fightful Select reported "that was vehemently denied by numerous AEW sources, and WWE sources have stated that there haven't been talks between Bobby Fish and the company."

Speaking on his Undisputed podcast, Fish addressed the rumor.

"Guess what boys, after over 25 years in the wrestling business, I don't know how contracts work myself," he said sarcastically and with a laugh. "What was most troublesome and amusing at the same time was how many outlets picked up on....if there's anybody who knows that it's totally fabricated information, it would be me, Adam, Kyle, Hunter [Triple H], the people that they're talking about, who didn't do any of the things. None of it is real. Even people like Jim Cornette picked it up and commented on it. Jim and I always had a great relationship. If I'm being honest, Jim hurt my feelings a little bit by believing some bullshit about me so easily. It is what it is, but that's what sucks the most about it. The people that write this stuff, there is no checks and balances, there are no ramifications when you are in the wrong and they will continue to write whatever they're going to write and it gets picked up by whomever. The fact or fiction line doesn't matter and the whole thing is absurd. I appreciate the fact that AEW did what they did. It is no favor to me, it's just the truth. There is no favor needed, let's just all tell the truth."

Fish said media should be better about what they report and fans should be better when it comes to deciphering reports and not running with everything that is out there.

Fish made a surprise appearance at IMPACT Victory Road, saying he doesn't work for IMPACT, but praised the locker room for being "legit."
