Scorpio Sky is sticking around AEW for the long term.
At AEW All Out, Dan Lambert revealed that Scorpio Sky had signed a new five-year extension with the company. Sky said in May that he was ready to prove himself in a "contract year" and, based on the extension, did enough in the eyes of Tony Khan.
Speaking to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Sky confirmed the extension with AEW.
"He's a very, very smart guy," Sky said of Tony Khan "He's got a memory like no one I've ever seen. I mean, you can have a small two-second conversation with him ... Two seconds, who can talk in two seconds ... But a small 20-second conversation with him in a loud room that you won't remember the next day, and he'll remind you of it a month later. "Hey, sir, I didn't forget about this." Like, "Oh, holy crap. I did. Sorry." Working for him is great. I love it. He's always shown faith in me, and it's something that I've really truly appreciated. He saw something in me very, very early on. He still sees it, evident by the contract extension that I just signed so I'm going to be with AEW for a long, long time. A lot of that comes down to Tony Khan and his vision. There's nothing more I can say about it. Nothing but good things to say about working for a guy like that."
Sky reconfirmed the deal by saying, "I did that right around the time of the Pay-Per-View. I'm happy to be with AEW for at least five more years."
Sky is set to team with Junior dos Santos & Ethan Page as they battle The Inner Circle (Jake Hager, Chris Jericho, & Sammy Guevara) on Friday's AEW Rampage.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Rampage beginning at 9 p.m. ET with the Buy In show.
