Marko Stunt made headlines recently after revealing on Twitter that he contemplated ending his life last year. Stunt, who participated in the inaugural Double or Nothing AEW event in 2019 and signed a contract with the company, remained a significant presence on television until his departure in 2021.
Stunt was part of the Jurassic Express, a popular trio that included Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus, and was managed by Christian Cage. However, after his contract with AEW expired, the company chose not to renew it, leaving Stunt in a period of uncertainty regarding his future in the industry.
Fortunately, Stunt found success working with the independent promotion GCW, and he eventually found himself in a much better place. In his recent tweet, he expressed gratitude for his progress, saying, “A year ago, I wanted to end things. Today I feel great. It’s easier to stay positive. I feel happier.”
Stunt’s revelation highlights the importance of mental health and the struggles that many in the wrestling industry face. While the nature of the business can be challenging and unpredictable, it’s essential to prioritize mental well-being and seek support when needed.
As for Stunt’s future in AEW, it remains to be seen whether he will return to the company. However, his story serves as a reminder of the valuable contributions that wrestlers make to the industry and the importance of supporting their physical and mental health.
A year ago, I wanted to end things.
Today I feel great. It’s easier to stay positive. I feel happier.
