One AEW talent seems intent on staying with the company after his teammate apparently departed.
Following his break up with Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland brought in Parker Boudreaux and the heavily tattooed Trench to form his Mogul Affiliates group alongside rap impresario Rick Ross. Strickland only teamed with Boudreaux once in AEW, losing to Dustin Rhodes and Keith Lee while Trench has not yet made his in-ring debut.
However, Strickland switched things up when he merged his group with The Embassy which features Prince Nana, Brian Cage, Toa Liona, and Kaun. The group has a rich history that dates back to 2004 with the current incarnation holding the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Championship.
Fightful Select reported that both Trench and Parker Boudreaux are suffering from injuries that have caused them to be absent from AEW television in recent months. It was noted the injuries came before the move to switch up the factions and form the Mogul Embassy.
However, it now appears that Trench is no longer with the company as AEW’s own website has removed him entirely from the roster page while Parker Boudreaux is still listed on it. Boudreaux is listed as part of the Mogul Embassy which means he could well bolster the group’s ranks when he returns.
Taking to social media Parker Boudreaux gave an indication as to his future plans and he seems set on remaining with AEW, writing:
“I’m not going anywhere”

Prior to joining AEW, Parker Boudreaux was part of the NXT roster where he was known as Harland. At one point, the star was tipped to be the “next Brock Lesnar” but he was released by WWE in April 2022.
