Marko Stunt has plans to open his own promotion.
After leaving AEW earlier this year due to his contract not being renewed, Stunt has returned to the independent scene, most often working for GCW. While Stunt has remained relatively active in the ring, he has plans outside the ring to start his own promotion later this year.
"I'm actually, I have my own promotion coming up around where I live in Memphis," Stunt told Steve Fall of NBC Sports Boston. "I think we're starting here in September. We're still trying to come up with everything and do everything. We haven't released any posters or anything. That is coming soon. I am going to be starting up a promotion here. I also help out a lot with a show in Missouri, with the booker there. I've been getting into that role and trying to learn that type of stuff."
Stunt was recently named Executive Vice President and Co-Booker of Cape Championship Wrestling in Missouri.
When asked about his future in wrestling and goals, Stunt circled back to his promotion, "That is my biggest goal right now. Starting that up, getting it running, having a little bit of eyes on it. It'll be cool once it starts going, I think it'll have initial buzz once I announce it and hopefully, I can keep that up, not get that initial pop and not know where to go from there."
It is unknown when Stunt's promotion will start up.
Elsewhere during the interview, Stunt discussed Christian Cage name dropping him on AEW Dynamite and Cage's role in the Jurassic Express. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
