He stated that his contract was up on April 30, and he went on to wish everyone in AEW luck. Grayson also stated that he hopes the world will see what the Dark Order is capable of soon.
On April 30th my contract with AEW expired. Best of luck to everyone working for AEW, our great production and medical team and of course every man and women who steps into the ring.
And to my Dark Order family, I hope the world will soon see what you are truly capable of.
