Yesterday, a video surfaced of AEW star Buddy Matthews cutting a promo at the Life Pro Wrestling event and saying he was going away for a while to “recalibrate” some things, where he thanked fans for their loyal supporters of the House of Black, especially in the wake of Malakai Black’s AEW release.
Later in the day, a report came out from Fightful Select stating that Matthews may have finished AEW and that he had expressed some disappointment with his run since joining the promotion earlier this year. An AEW source apparently shared this with the publication, adding that his involvement with the Great Muta on Grand Slam Rampage was a way to write him off from television for a while.
Despite all this, Matthews has taken to Twitter to deny the reports, where the former NXT cruiserweight champion shared a GIF of the famous sitcom Seinfeld of Elaine repeating the phrase “Fake, Fake, Fake Fake”. At the moment there is no specification as to which part he denies. Check it out below.
