WWE Contacted Malakai Black When Triple H Took Over

It has reportedly been confirmed that WWE attempted to contact Malakai Black despite his long contract with AEW.

Malakai Black recently was granted his release from his AEW contract, albeit conditionally. It is not known how long Black will be out of the wrestling industry but it has been reportedly due to mental health reasons while Black maintains he wants to get his life in order after several tragedies in his life.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted in the latest issue that Black was reached out to by WWE when Triple H took over creative in the company.

Malakai Black was one of the people WWE reached out to even though he had signed a 5-year deal with AEW. When Paul Levesque took over, WWE contacted a number of former WWE talents. Black was not the only person in AEW to ask for his release at the time.

Time will tell when we will see Black back in the squared circle and if WWE can find away to bring him back to the promotion.
