Leva Bates has announced that she has left AEW.
Bates joined the company in April 2019 shortly after its launch. While she wrestled just 25 matches during her time with the promotion, she worked on a number of projects behind the scenes including the Being The Elite YouTube series.
‘The Librarian’ last wrestled back in February when she teamed with Madison Rayne and Willow Nightingale in defeat to Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose.
In a post on social media on May 1st, Bates confirmed that her deal with AEW had expired.
“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. 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. I’ve given my time, my focus, and my effort to the company, but now I’ve got to focus on myself, my future and my 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.”
