Big AEW star rumored to have asked for release

Last updated

A big All Elite Wrestling star has reportedly asked for their release from the company, potentially hoping to go from AEW back to WWE.

According to a new report/rumor from Xero News, Malakai Black has reportedly requested his release from the company.

“Unconfirmed report is that Malakai Black has asked for his AEW release and has been granted it” the site claimed on Twitter.

“Also told 4 people in total have also been granted releases. No other names given at this time. Double checking this and I will re-validate, This is unconfirmed at this time” the site concluded.

AEW star asking for release?

It’s worth noting that this rumour from Xero News is just that, a rumour, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

With Black’s wife Zelina Vega working in WWE and Triple H now the Head of Creative with the company, it would not surprise me at all to see him want to return.

Again this is unconfirmed at this time, but I would not be shocked to see Malakai leave and return to the WWE main roster under Triple H.

Black is actually one of the performers that I believe was better presented in WWE than AEW, which isn’t exactly commonplace.

I’d quite happily see Black back in WWE, because Triple H clearly ‘got’ him as a performer and could put him in a great position on WWE programming.
