On April 19, Jack Evans announced that he would be leaving AEW as his contract would not be renewed at the end of the month.
Evans last competed on the March 1 (taped on February 5) episode of AEW Dark, but was part of the Hardy Andrade Family Offices.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on Insight, Evans discussed his AEW departure.
"I don't have any bad experiences or anything. Like I said in a follow-up tweet, I don't want to diss myself, but I kind of understand where they are coming from. I don't actually feel that I was giving added value to the company. Obviously, me being on that AEW salary contract and on TV is awesome, but it wasn't a bitter breakup or anything and I understood where they were coming from. It wasn't something out of left field. One thing that I want to put AEW over for is waiting the whole contract and not just, 'okay, we signed him, we don't want this guy anymore, dump him next week.' I didn't want to get involved because those Twitter fights are eternal, but it started this huge Twitter fight and I'm like, 'I feel that's the way to handle it,'" he said.
When it was mentioned that other companies may sign a person to a three-year deal and then release them after a few months, Evans replied, "100%. I like that they honor the length they told you they were going to give you."
Evans is currently a free agent following his AEW departure.
The full interview between Evans and Van Vliet will be released on Thursday, May 12.
