Report: AEW Not Granting Talent Releases


An AEW wrestler reportedly informed the company that WWE representatives had approached them regarding a potential return, prompting AEW to email WWE co-CEOs Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon, telling them “not to tamper” with their talent.

Malakai Black has now denied claims that he asked to be released from his contract,  following reports to the contrary.

After Triple H took over creative duties from Vince McMahon a few months ago, WWE contacted a number of AEW talents regarding a possible return, including Black, FTR, and Swerve Strickland.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said no one is going to be released at this moment in time by AEW President Tony Khan.
