Vickie Guerrero: I'll Be Leaving AEW After July, I'm Ready To Move On And Bet On Myself

Fightful Select recently reported that Guerrero and AEW agreed to not renew her contract, which is up in July 2023.

In an interview with Denise Salcedo, Guerrero noted that she will be leaving the company after July, as she is working on other projects. She stated that she can't fully discuss what they are, as some of them have not been announced yet. Guerrero explained that she is working with HSN, and she is also writing her book.

“I am doing other projects. With me, having a decision to… after July, I’ll be leaving AEW, which is publicly known. But I have some great projects. I have a TV project that’s coming out that I can’t say yet because it’s not publicly been announced. It’s gonna be really exciting. I work with HSN, I’m an influencer. I’m gonna start going live with them next month, which I’m really excited about. To earn commission and to get paid, how great is that? To go shopping, I have shopping at my fingertips. That’s a woman’s dream. I’m writing my book, and so that’s another project that we’re doing. So it’s just a lot of cool side hustle things that everyone will start going, and Denise, I’ll have you back on to be on your show so that I can announce properly what projects we’ll be doing after July," Guerrero said.

When asked to reflect on her time with AEW, Guerrero made it clear that she enjoyed it, but she also wanted more. She noted that her character was not progressed throughout her run, and opportunities were not given. Guerrero then stated that she needed to go somewhere to the character she wants to be, and she's ready to bet on herself.

“AEW’s been good with me. I loved my time there. I was there for three years. I just want more in life. My character wasn’t progressed for the three years, and opportunities weren’t given. I just felt like, for me, as a professional decision, I needed to go somewhere else where I’m able to be the character that I want to be and to be appreciated for the work that I can present inside the ring. Even though I’m gonna miss managing Nyla and Marina, three years is good. I tried it, I bought the t-shirt, I get to say I was there, and I’m ready to move on and bet on myself. So with the way doors have opened, I’m very grateful, and I know that AEW’s gonna be very successful, and they’re gonna do great stuff in the future. I just want to take a different road," Guerrero said.
