Zicky Dice is now a free agent and he has his sights set on making a splash in All Elite Wrestling.
Dice spoke with Fightful after he officially became a free agent on January 1, and said that there’s been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the NWA in the past year, but he’s “ready for the bigger stage.”
Zicky asked for his release from the NWA earlier this year, but he would’ve needed to agree to some terms for that to happen, one of which was signing a non-disparagement agreement.
“They were willing to grant my release, and then I was sent this long, long, long NDA that basically said, because I had to lawyer up then, which basically said if I say anything about the NWA, the friends and family of NWA, for the rest of my life, then they come back and sue me for it. So I refused to sign that, and I stayed quiet and here we are, free bird, ready to sing like a canary. I’m only speaking facts and this is what happened with me.”
Now that he’s free to work where he wants, Zicky says he sees AEW as a great landing spot for himself and called it his number one goal moving forward.
“I see myself being All Elite, that’s the best stage for ‘Outlandish Zicky Dice,’ and whether they know it or not, I just think it’s been, I’ve been posting on the Craigslist Missed Connections for months now, and they haven’t picked up on it. But I think there’s a little missed connection there. And I think bringing the knowledge and power and creativity and character and charisma to All Elite and making that Outlandish, I think that would be the move. What I took pride in in the NWA was building this new company coming back. AEW is still very new, and I would love to be able to come in and share my story and create stories at AEW, so that is my number one goal. I truly see myself at AEW.”
