Could Malakai Black go back to WWE?

Last updated

All Elite Wrestling star Malakai Black recently confirmed that he had requested his release from the company, but could he return to WWE?

Speaking on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed more about the situation and how Black might work going forward.

‘He had a push there [AEW] and he was hurt, which was part of the problem. I think he had a bad back and so he was used not as much as late” Meltzer began.

“They put him in the trios thing, so the other two guys’¦it’s a lot easier with an injury to be in a Trio rather than being used as a singles guy a lot” Meltzer explained.

“I guess we have to wait for it to play out and see what the situation is. Basically, it’s what type of a deal he and Tony Khan came up with. Tony Khan wouldn’t talk about it. He talked a lot but didn’t say any specifics as to what the deal is. The story going around was that it was a conditional release and what that meant, I don’t really know” Meltzer revealed.

“The assumption of a conditional release is that it’s probably something where he can’t just go right to WWE. Maybe there’s a timeframe or something like that. I don’t think he would agree to it if the timeframe was four and a half years” Meltzer concluded.

Essentially, yes Malakai Black could end up returning to WWE, but it’ll likely be a fair few months until it actually happens.
