Shawn Spears of The Pinnacle, and husband to Peyton Royce, recently spoke with WrestleTalk and talked about the possibility that his wife and Billie Kay could join AEW in the near future.

Spears said, “Those kind of questions are a little above my pay grade. Being biased and obviously being selfish, of course I think both of those women individually are incredible talents, but collectively they are over the moon in terms of talent. I don’t need to sell Cassie Lee or Billie Kay, I don’t need to sell any of those guys to you. You know what they are capable of, you know how highly entertaining they are, and when it comes to in-ring ability, they just complement each other so well.”

Does he think they could show up to AEW? He said “When things like that happen, and they happen to everybody, I tell everybody this not just those two, but I’ve been released before. Everybody loses their job at some point, you’re either there for 30 years and they give you a gold watch and you retire or things happen. The main thing is how you bounce back. Really good individuals, really strong-willed individuals and people with even a chip on their shoulder, they have a tendency to bounce back and land on their feet, and those two women are going to land on their feet without question. Wherever they go, they’re going to be on TV together somewhere. So selfishly I’d like us to get with them first, but wherever they go they’re going to make a massive impactful debut. I expect nothing less from those two.”

Shawn also spoke about his upcoming match, which is the first ever Blood & Guts match. Shawn Spears hinted at legitimate heat between members of the Pinnacle and the Inner Circle. He said, “I don’t think I’m going to get in trouble. If they ask you to cut this, then go ahead and cut this, but sometimes in wrestling, you’re going to meet guys and work with guys that you just don’t get along with, no matter what you don’t see eye-to-eye. That’s something that’s just not going to change and it is what it is. Professionalism takes precedence, but sometimes guys just don’t like each other. I’m not going to name any names, I’m not going to say anything more other than there are guys in this match on May 5 that legitimately don’t like each other.”
