A top AEW star has denied reports that he has left All Elite Wrestling and could be heading back to WWE in the near future.

Speaking on an Instagram Live stream, Malakai Black revealed his status with the company right now, saying that he is just taking some time off.

‘That [conditional release] is false, I don’t know why you trust these people [the wrestling media] to tell you the truth. Because it’s not true” Black revealed during the live stream.

‘Clearly, it’s not confirmed (speaking about his release from the company). None of it has been confirmed because I haven’t left. I’ve been given time off by Tony Khan to take care of a bunch of stuff. All this stuff was weeks ago.

“I posted that statement as a summary to understand why I [am taking] some time off. It is in the statement. It’s mind-boggling” Black added.

‘I will see you guys in a couple of weeks, maybe a couple of months. As I said, I’m only taking some time off’¦there’s nothing going on. I’m fine. I’m going to be fine. Everything’s fine. You’ll see me right back in AEW pretty soon. I’m just going to take some time, that’s it” the former WWE Superstar concluded.
