AEW Collision ended with a huge six-man cage match but two of the participants in the match are seemingly looking for a return to WWE.
The 27th of January edition of Collision was headlined by a massive elimination cage match that pitted FTR and Daniel Garcia against the House of Black.
Given the nature of the match, the winners were the team that could escape the cage first meaning that nobody had to be pinned or submitted to lose the bout.
House Of Black Pair Want Out Of AEW
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer commented on House of Black’s cage match with FTR and Daniel Garcia and implied both Malakai Black and Buddy Matthews are waiting for a return to WWE and questioned AEW’s wisdom in seemingly never having the House of Black never lose cleanly:
Malakai Black never does jobs, and when this was going on and I’m watching this, one of the things I was thinking watching this is like, these freaking House of Black guys never do jobs, and here’s the other thing: I was thinking like, what if they win this match and they’re just going like – two of those three guys are going to the WWE. I mean, they’re going.
As soon as they can go, they’re gone. Even though they were treated like sh*t in the WWE, and they never do jobs here, and they’re still going back to the WWE and my thought is kinda like, why do you keep putting them over because we know they’re leaving?
Malakai Black was known as Aleister Black in WWE while Buddy Matthews was known as Buddy Murphy. Both men were released by WWE on the 2nd of June 2021. Black appeared in AEW just a few short weeks later but Matthews did not become All Elite until February 2022.
Black is married to current WWE star Zelina Vega while Matthews is engaged to WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley.
Andrade became the latest star to make the switch back to WWE when he returned at the Royal Rumble. His last match in AEW came at Worlds End when he lost to Miro.
