Mance Warner MLW Status Update
This past Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite featured AEW announcing that Jon Moxley will be facing off against Mance Warner in an Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator match. Warner earned a chance at a future title shot following his victory in the Bunkhouse Battle Royal match at this past Sunday’s Ric Flair’s Last Match event.
Fightful Select reported that their sources stated that despite his recent return to Major League Wrestling, Warner is currently not under contract with the company. Warner reportedly is among the few MLW talent who currently works for the company without a contract, which was stated to be around 10% of MLW’s roster.
This reportedly was the reason why AEW officials did not need to contact MLW in order to negotiate a deal for Warner’s appearances this week in the company.
