In an interview with Fightful, Joey Janela revealed some details about his contract with All Elite Wrestling, including the fact that he will be allowed to continue holding shows with GCW, such as Joey Janela’s Spring Break. He said that his contract is for three years and will begin in May. He also revealed that AEW talent have already started to get paid. Here are highlights:

On getting to continue his GCW shows: “It was a big part. That’s why I didn’t want to sign with WWE yet. I’m having too much fun. These guys are going to give me the opportunity to keep doing what I’m doing right now. What I’m going to be doing is going to play out over this three-year deal with them. It’s very special that I get a chance to stick around see talent develop. With my shows and the Game Changer brand getting more involved with the non Janela shows — I want to make sure we can help develop talent for the future. PCO (wrestled) at Madison Square Garden. Jungle Boy signed with AEW. I’m sure when Marko Stunt comes back he’ll have great success.”

On his AEW deal: “I think the contracts officially start May 1st. That’s when things roll through, but we already got handled a little bit money-wise, so things are looking great. I’m already getting paid. Dealing with that is cool. Getting my first paycheck after 14 years of busting my ass. Never received a paycheck from Wrestling, just from jobs that have kept me afloat until I got to this point.”
