Malakai Black

Report: WWE Spoke To Malakai Black & Others Still Under AEW Contract


WWE was reportedly engaged in talks with Malakai Black, despite him being under contract with All Elite Wrestling at the time.

Black left AEW earlier this month after being granted a “conditional” release from the promotion.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE reached out to Black during the latter’s five-year deal with AEW.

The new report also confirms that Black was not the only person in AEW to ask for his release at that time.

It is unclear who else WWE reportedly spoke to who are still under contract with AEW.

It has been reported that Black is eyeing up a WWE return given the company’s recent change in management.

His final AEW match came at All Out 2022, where he and the House of Black lost to Miro, Sting and Darby Allin.
