It has been speculated that Malakai Black has had a request for his release granted by AEW.
Malakai Black is said to have asked for his release from the promotion, who are rumored to have granted the request. If true, then Black will depart the Jacksonville promotion fresh off the back of a shocking elimination from the Trios Title Tournament at the hands of the Dark Order
Xero News made the announcement via their Twitter page, stressing that the report is unconfirmed as of now. This means that as major as the speculation is, it is always worth bearing in mind that nothing has been made official yet.
The patriarch of the House of Black emerged in AEW in 2021 following his release from WWE. He has since feuded with the likes of Cody Rhodes, Sting and Death Triangle in a fairly middling run.
