Just as soon as the world knew Cody Hall had signed with MLW, he was gone.
The son of Scott Hall has spent time in NJPW, NOAH and DDT, but thus far hasn't made his impression felt in the United States. MLW founder Court Bauer confirmed that Hall did sign, but also, that he's gone from the company as later reported.
"He did sign," Bauer said. "He was briefly with us. He had some stuff going on that he didn’t feel he could participate and so we said, ‘We understand,’ and we moved on and we wish him the best. Cody’s a guy that we kinda looked at, probably, dating as far back as 2018 / 2019 when I started to create what the Dynasty would ultimately be. At one point he was a member of it in my mind before those deals, on and off, through a two year courtship, almost. At the end, I don’t think it was a right fit for either party. There’s no animosity on our end and we wish him the best with whatever is next in his life, in or outside of wrestling."
For Bauer, it's not necessarily the end of the road just because things didn't work out between the two sides in the past.
"There’s always a possibility. Like we were talking about at the top of the conversation, there’s guys that would maybe workout better here than elsewhere and there’s guys that workout elsewhere than here. But, I’m always a big believer in second chances. In my career, if I hadn’t had a second, third, fourth chance I wouldn’t be doing MLW now. So, I’m grateful for those that gave me a second chance, and a third chance. So, I guess never say never," Bauer stated.
