Leva Bates, who has been with AEW since the company was formed in 2019, has announced on Twitter that her AEW deal has expired and is no longer with the promotion.
“As of today, my contract with AEW has expired. The last four years have been quite a ride; I’ve learned so much and grown exponentially,” Bates wrote on Twitter. “I’ve seen wrestling history take place as someone who was on the team since before the first show. I appreciate & love all the crew, staff, and talent; I will cherish all our memories together.”
Bates added that she gave her time, focus, and effort to the company, but now she has got to focus on herself, her future, and her career.
“I hope you all, my friends, fans, and loved ones, stay with me through this next chapter of my journey. I hope to make you all proud no matter where I go,” she continued.
Prior to joining AEW, Bates had stints in TNA/Impact and later in NXT as Blue Pants.
