Jack Evans Regrets Not Being In Proper Shape For Kenny Omega Match

Jack Evans has already placed the blame on himself for how his AEW run came to an end, saying he got a bit lazy.

Evans was part of the original AEW signings, but his contract wasn't renewed when it expired at the end of December. He was largely used alongside Angelico as TH2.

Speaking on the PWPonderings Podcast, Evans was asked if there were any goals in AEW that he didn't hit, leading to him revealing one of his biggest regrets.

"There is one specific match. I was super disappointed with my match with Kenny Omega because I had gotten so lazy and out of shape, we actually had to cut out so much and I didn't perform like I should have. That was a goal I didn't meet. That really should have been a breakout performance that I wasn't in the proper shape at all. I got so blown up. That's a regret. The only goal I had was to do more as a tag team with me and Angelico as TH2 and it never really got off the ground in the way I wanted," he said.

Evans and Omega wrestled on the November 26, 2019 episode of AEW Dark.

Evans continued, discussing how he let the team down and where he thinks they were headed before COVID.

"At the beginning, before they closed the borders with COVID, I think we were on the list to get a push. I just had this big fall off and wasn't performing well. If you go to AEW Botches on Twitter, I had a million of them. I feel bad for Angelico because I feel I got the tag team off track. Especially when the company first started, they didn't have many heel teams and we were down being the heel, I don't want to say midcard jobber tag team, but they needed that at the time. Specifically me, I wasn't able to perform that role and that's when the de-push happened. I think we were, I don't really talk to the office that much, but I think we were on the list to start getting feuds with the Young Bucks and Best Friends after the COVID shutdown," he said.

Evans is now taking Independent bookings following his AEW departure.

He is set to return to GCW in June.
