According to a recent report, Malakai Black has told at least one WWE talent about his wishes of returning to the company in the near future.
Sometime before the recent controversy that led to the backstage brawl between CM Punk and The Elite, many pro wrestling news sites were reporting about some backstage unhappiness and frustrations going on in the AEW locker room.
About that, one of the main stories was the one about Malakai Black asking for his AEW release due to some mental health issues.
On a recent report, Fightful Select (subscription required) has informed that several AEW higher ups thought Malakai asked for his release because he just wanted to leave the company and return to the WWE. The main reason why they believed this is because, apparently, Malakai had told at least one WWE talent about his wishes of returning to the company.
Additionally, Fightful also states that some AEW officials thought the situation had ‘smoothed over’ before AEW All Out.
Malakai Black & Buddy Matthews Will Be Reuniting In WWE?
Also on this report, Fightful details that at least one AEW source believes that both Malakai Black and Buddy Matthews- who is also rumored to be done with the company- will return to WWE in the coming months.
They also explained that AEW never had any intentions of letting Malakai Black go, even during the last month.
There is no doubt that the situation is turning more complicated every day. So, since there are still more questions than answers about this, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
