AEW star may be leaving the company – Wrestling News

The House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews) lost to Darby Allin, Sting, and Miro at Sunday’s AEW All Out pay-per-view event. Post-match, The House of Black hugged at the top of the stage. Black thanked the crowd by bowing and waving.

AEW President Tony Khan was questioned about this during the media scrum following the show, but did not comment on this. As previously reported last week, Black recently asked for his release from AEW, but it was not granted.

While speaking on today’s episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez talked about how it felt like All Out was Black’s last night.

“They cheered him, he blew a kiss, he bowed, and he left. Man, I thought, ‘this dude is done,’” Alvarez stated.

Meltzer added, “I think he’s done.”

Bryan continued, “I don’t know if he’s done because Tony was asked about it, and Tony didn’t answer. He said he couldn’t talk about it. If he’s not leaving, then why didn’t you say no, he’s here.”

Meltzer pointed out that Khan did the same thing with MJF earlier this year by not commenting on the situation. However, that was part of the work/shoot storyline.
