Though it seemed like AEW strongly teased it at Full Gear, there are apparently no plans for Joey Janela to feud with his former girlfriend Penelope Ford and her current boyfriend, Kip Sabian, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
At Full Gear earlier this month, Joey Janela lost to Shawn Spears and the show quickly cut to a backstage interview with Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford. Penelope kissed Sabian and said, “Why be bad when you can be superbad?” That’s an obvious shot at Janela, since Penelope was known as “The Bad Girl” during her time aligned with “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela in the indies and at the start of AEW. Kip Sabian’s nickname is “Superbad.” That line was “slipped in” by Penelope Ford, according to the Observer.

After the Sabian and Ford interview, the show then cut away to Janela walking backstage after his loss, looking dejected. Janela tweeted this that night:
That promo was awkwardly placed after my match and want nothing to do with that Lmfaooooo

And he later tweeted that he’d “rather go back to delivering pizza” than feud with Sabian and Penelope.

According to the Observer, though it seemed like an obvious tease, there are currently no plans for a feud between the two in AEW, and when Janela said that he doesn’t want to do the angle, that was legit.
Both men were in the battle royal on Dynamite last week, but notably avoided each other.
