Kyle O'Reilly says he signed a five-year AEW contract

O'Reilly revealed the length of his AEW deal during a podcast interview.

Kyle O'Reilly will be with AEW for the foreseeable future.

In an appearance on the Toddcast Podcast, O'Reilly revealed that he signed a five-year contract when he joined the company in December 2021.

"Yeah, for me in five years, I'll still be with AEW. I signed a five-year deal with them," O'Reilly said. 

In response to a question about his long-term goals, O'Reilly mentioned holding championship gold in AEW.

"So, hopefully by then, champion of the company or a several-time tag champion. Just having fun and never losing that love I have for the business," O'Reilly said.

"In WWE, I was with NXT, but I never got called up to Raw or SmackDown. Now with AEW, it feels like I'm having that main roster experience," he said. 

I'm part of an organization that's on national TV, that's selling out arenas all over, I'm traveling, I feel like a real wrestler. It's pretty cool."

O'Reilly debuted on the December 22, 2021 edition of AEW Dynamite. He made his final NXT appearance on the December 7, 2021 episode, losing a cage match to Von Wagner. O'Reilly left NXT after his contract expired and was not subject to a non-compete period after leaving.
