Following Jade Cargill and Brian Pillman Jr. leaving AEW, another talent is now gone from the company.
In recent months, the AEW roster has lost some names with Jade Cargill and Brian Pillman Jr. finding new homes in WWE following their contracts with Tony Khan’s company expiring.
VSK and Sonny Kiss have also departed the company in recent months as well with Khan favouring an approach that sees people’s deals expire rather than releasing them ad hoc.
Eagle-eyed fans have now spotted that Brock Anderson has been removed from the company’s official roster page, signalling that he is no longer with the company. Anderson last competed on the 12th of August edition of AEW Collision where he was defeated in short order by then-TNT Champion Luchasaurus.
Anderson had been aligned with his WWE Hall of Fame father Arn Anderson for much of his time in the company and in the early part of 2023 had formed a tag team with Brian Pillman Jr. – who fans will now know as Lexis King in NXT.
Will Arn Anderson follow his son out of AEW?
In the early part of 2023 Arn Anderson, in a discussion with Steve Fall at WrestlingNewsPremium.com, explained that his son’s contract with AEW was set to expire in May – and he has only had one match in the company since then – whilst he has a further year on top of that which he is ready to see out:
“Well, Brock’s got about, I think in May his is up, and then I have another year passed that. I’m having a great time. I’m enjoying working for the company and I’m going to certainly get that last year now. What they have for Brock and I together going forward, I don’t know. I look at things and always have going all the way back to WCW when contracts came out.
“When you get a guaranteed contract, your wife has the luxury of planning your life because they do it anyway. To know much time and it’s not something that’s not going to change and all that, you can map your life out. That gives me another year and a half almost to help Brock every which way I can.”
Brock Anderson has had a few matches on the independent scene in recent months as well, what the future holds for the 26-year-old talent remains to be seen.
