Update on Buddy Matthews possibly be finished with AEW

As previously noted, Buddy Matthews announced during Saturday night’s Fight Life Pro Wrestling event that he will “need to go away for a while” to recalibrate.

According to Fightful.com, the word going around in recent months was that Matthews “expressed dissatisfaction regarding his situation” in AEW. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that AEW hasn’t commented on Matthews but the belief is that both him and Malakai Black are done with the company for at least the time being. Meltzer wrote the following…

“There is no confirmation of a release although just about everyone figures he’s got a long-term deal, wants to go back to WWE and has to work something out to do so. We were also told Tony Khan is not hot on releasing people to go to WWE so we’ll have to see how this plays out.”

The current belief is that Brody King and Julia Hart will continue to be aligned on AEW television.
