AEW Original The Bunny Reportedly Departs The Company

Over the course of 2023, almost a dozen talents have departed All Elite Wrestling. The biggest among them are two-time AEW World Champion CM Punk, who was terminated with cause following a backstage altercation at AEW All In; inaugural TBS Champion Jade Cargill, who has gone on to become one of WWE’s biggest signings in recent memory; and Brian Pillman Jr, who also signed WWE and has since been redubbed Lexis King in NXT. Now, yet another notable name has seemingly been added to the list.

PWInsider reports that The Bunny has exited AEW after she and the company came to a mutual agreement to part ways. No further details on her exit have been reported at the time of writing. The Bunny was one of the first female stars to join the promotion, signing in March 2019, and came out victorious in the company’s first-ever female singles match – defeating Leva Bates on the Buy-In of Fyter Fest 2019.

Throughout her four-and-a-half-year run with AEW, The Bunny primarily acted as a manager for The Blade, her real-life partner, and The Butcher. As a competitor, she found moderate tag team success in separate pairings with Brandi Rhodes and Penelope Ford. With Rhodes, she formed The Nightmare Sisters in mid-2020 and the two went on to reach the finals of the company’s only women’s tag team tournament. Her alliance with Ford, meanwhile led to a highly acclaimed tag team street fight against Anna Jay and Tay Conti at night 2 of AEW Rampage: New Year’s Smash 2021.

The Bunny is perhaps better known for her time as Allie in IMPACT Wrestling. During her three years there between 2016 and 2019, she captured the Knockouts Championship twice and had a notable alliance with Rosemary. Towards the end of her IMPACT run, she debuted a ‘Dark Allie’ persona, the inspiration behind The Bunny character she would use in AEW, when she was possessed by fellow IMPACT star Su Yung. This character eventually led to her on-screen exit from the promotion when she was saved from the possession by Rosemary but subsequently died in her arms.
