Peter Avalon Discusses His Feud With Brandon Cutler, Says It Was All Written On The Fly

Peter Avalon talks his lengthy feud with Brandon Cutler.

Throughout the first half of 2020, Peter Avalon and Brandon Cutler tagged together on various episodes of AEW Dark. After losing multiple matches, Avalon and Cutler split and began to feud against each other, with the goal of one of them finally winning a match in All Elite Wrestling. Cutler would go on to defeat Avalon on the October 27 edition of Dark in a No Disqualification match, earning his first victory in the company.

In a new interview with Fightful, Avalon talked how the feud was made up on the fly and how it first came together.

"That’s great that you say that. That’s wonderful that you say that. I didn’t mean to cut you off. The feud with Cutler was completely just written on the fly because we were just two guys that had nothing to do and we weren’t doing anything. It was just something during the pandemic. Like I said, everything I did up and to that match, the loser thing was completely done on the thing. There was no writing thing for it. It was just done per show, we discussed it, things just kind of happened."

Avalon continued on and elaborated on the feud, noting that it really came together because of his lack of direction in the company.

"In October 2019, I think, is when the show hit TV. So we were only on for a couple of months. The Librarian was doing some TV and then immediately pulled from TV and put onto Dark occasionally. Then with no direction. The Librarian character really never had any direction. So it was just kind of business as usual, I show up to TV and no direction. Then the pandemic started and then most of the Californian guys aren’t on the road and then we just started building this thing between me and Brandon on BTE because were both, as you said, with the losers record and that was both suggested and written by the Bucks. The Bucks, and Brandon and me talking, but mostly them."

On a 2020 episode of Being The Elite, Cutler and Avalon had a press conference skit leading up to their last match against one another. In the interview, Avalon discussed how it all came together.

"So I asked Tony to do that because we were in the Jacksonville hotel. Everyone was downstairs mingling, doing the brothering thing—talking, chatting and doing that. Me and Brandon had this idea, like, ‘Hey, let’s do a press conference.’ So I don’t remember who’s idea it was. I just want to say it was a collective idea of Brandon and I. ‘Let’s do a press conference and make this like it’s a big fight feel despite how silly it is, the two losers,’ and then Tony was there. So I asked him and he said yes. So it was all impromptu, on the spot. We ran into each other and made it work. It’s awesome. I think that’s still Tony’s only thing he did on BTE."

Avalon and Cutler have yet to be involved in a match with one another since their final encounter in October 2020.
