As previously noted, former ROH world champion Jonathan Gresham reportedly asked for his ROH/AEW release.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com provided an update regarding the situation. Gresham is not expected to be back “in any form” with AEW/ROH unless him and President Tony Khan are able to make amends. One person described the backstage situation to Johnson as “ugly and unprofessional.” Johnson noted the following…
“One version of the story making the rounds is that Gresham ‘cursed out’ Khan. Another story talents are sharing includes that Gresham used his ranking in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine PWI 500 list as an argument as to why he should be presented better.”
Neither Gresham nor AEW have publicly commented on the matter although Gresham’s wife Jordynne Grace wrote the following via Twitter…
“I promise that you don’t have to believe everything you read online. 95% of ‘dirt sheet’ news is exaggerated, completely made up, or taken out of context.”
