The Return of Ace Steel to AEW: Not on the Road

Despite the past issues, Ace Steel made a comeback to AEW. However, his return came with specific conditions.

While he’s back on the AEW payroll, he isn’t travelling with the Collision roster. This decision stems from the concerns regarding his previous actions and the subsequent label of being an “insurance risk,” according to a new report from Fightful Select.

“After months out of the fold, we’ve learned that Steel met with Tony Khan in recent months and spoke about wrestling. Ultimately it was decided that he could return to AEW in some capacity while not being on the road, and would be permitted to seek work outside of All Elite Wrestling as well. The word was that his deal is up in the Fall of 2024.”
