Kayla Rossi reportedly turned down a contract from AEW.
Rossi, a pro bodybuilder and fitness trainer, made her debut back in the summer of 2021 as the bodyguard of Joey Janela. While she never wrestled a match, she did get physical at ringside and deliver impressive moves to some of Janela’s opponents.
In an update, it was recently confirmed that Janela finished up with AEW on May 1 when his contract expired, but Fightful Select reports that Rossi had been done with the company for a while when Janela’s contract expired. She had already been removed from TV in the role with Janela.
Rossi never signed a deal with AEW, but sources there indicate that she was offered a trainee contact at one point. Rossi ended up turning the contract down, which led to the two sides parting ways.
It looks like Rossi is at least considering a further career in pro wrestling as she’s open to accepting indie dates from promoters.
There’s been no talk of bad blood between Rossi and AEW.
