Mance Warner is looking to get out of his MLW contract.
Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net reports that Mance Warner asked for his release from MLW, but MLW denied his request. According to Haynes, Warner is still trying to get out of his MLW deal and lawyers are now involved.
When asked by Haynes for a comment on the situation, MLW told him, "all we’re saying is he [Mance Warner] remains under a deal.”
It is unknown when Warner's deal with MLW expires and the company did not comment when asked. MLW is preparing for its restart as they return to running events, though an official date for the restart has not been announced. It is unknown if Warner will be part of the tapings.
It was previously reported that AEW had interest in Warner. Warner recently filed for trademarks on his in-ring name and 'Southern Stomper.'
While under AEW contract, Mance has competed at various Independent events and made an appearance at Joey Janela's Spring Break 4 in the Clusterfuck Battle Royal. He is set to compete for AAW on October 29.
