Sonny Kiss wants to continue exploring the dynamic of “Sonny and Joey” on AEW TV.
Kiss was a guest on a recent Pro Wrestling Junkies Q&A and said (via Fightful) he wasn’t sure why the storyline vignettes with Joey Janela were stopped, but hopes to see more of them in the future.
“A nice storyline would be great for us, that’s what I’m looking forward to, more so than a championship match or getting the titles. If we get the titles, I want to be in an actual story with the titles. Being involved in a story, more of the vignettes, please. The official team name for us was Joey & Sonny or Sonny & Joey, whatever. They just never used it as the actual team. The idea, when we did the vignette, was supposed to be based on a sitcom. At the end of the vignette, it says Sonny & Joey, and that was the original team name. Basically, giving a sitcom feel or like Jay & Silent Bob. That’s where we were supposed to go with it, I don’t know why we didn’t do more vignettes if it wasn’t warranted or needed. That’s what we want a lot more of. I know Dynamite doesn’t have as much time and you have to get everyone on, I totally understand that. With Elevation coming, more opportunities will be coming. We’re fine waiting our turn. When we get it, we’ll be ready for it.”
Sonny Kiss and Joey Janela have been regular fixtures on AEW Dark in recent months, but they haven’t teamed up on Dynamite together since they lost to Kip Sabian & Miro in September 2020. Sonny and Joey have been on the winning end of their last three matches together on Dark, and they’ll be back in action on Tuesday’s episode of AEW Dark against Santana & Ortiz.
