We had previously reported that Mance Warner had once again been drawing interest from All Elite Wrestling, as a source close to the situation stated that “AEW 100% has interest” in the Southern Stomper.
I have been told that Mance Warner has asked for his release from MLW, but was denied his request.
While Warner is currently under contract with MLW, source have confirmed to me that he is still trying to get out of his deal and that lawyers are now involved.
I reached out to MLW for a statement on the situation, asking about lawyer involvement, whether the company expected Warner to be present for their upcoming “Restart” TV Tapings, and if there had been any further negotiation between the two parties. However, the only comment I received from the company was “all we’re saying is he [Mance Warner] remains under a deal.”
I also asked MLW representatives how much time was left on Mance Warner’s current contract, which they also chose not to comment on.
Warner will be competing for AAW on October 29th. The event will be available on Fite TV.
We will keep you updated if we hear anything more about Mance Warner’s status with MLW.
