One AEW star who has been with the company both in the ring and behind the scenes since its beginning is on their way out.

Taking to social media, QT Marshall issued a statement revealing he has handed in his resignation and will be done with AEW by the end of 2023. What has caught most people’s attention is the line about AEW having changed a lot and heading in a different direction:

Thank you AEW. Thank you Tony Khan. I’ve had the privilege of being here since day 1 and I’ve written over 750 formats for All Elite Wrestling and always with pride. As much as I’ve enjoyed being a VP, Manager of Talent Relations and wearing a myriad of hats, the company has changed a lot since 2019 and is heading in a different direction and I feel that it’s best that I do the same as we only get one chance to go All In! I have officially resigned from AEW and will have fulfilled all obligations by the end of 2023.

Thank you to everyone from the front office to the production truck to some of the hardest working talent in this sport! Most importantly, thank you to those who booed, cheered, and took part in this season of my life.

QT Marshall Came To AEW With Cody Rhodes

Marshall’s time in AEW began as Cody Rhodes’ assistant with Rhodes being named as one of AEW’s EVPs along with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. He then transitioned into his other roles in the company, sticking with AEW while Cody Rhodes left in early 2022 to return to WWE.

QT Marshall has been active in the ring for Mexican promotion AAA in recent months as well and lost his AAA Latin American Championship on the 19th of November.

While QT Marshall says there’s only one chance to go All In, AEW is going for a repeat as tickets have gone on sale for All In at Wembley Stadium in 2024.
