EJ Nduka was blindsided by his WWE release back in 2021, but everything in WWE changed after Triple H took over as head of Creative. He would make his way to AEW last year but hasn’t done much at all. However, his status in the company remains a mystery even now.

EJ Nduka made his in-ring debut in AEW against Konosuke Takeshita on the January 28th, 2023 edition of AEW Dark. He was even offered a contract right after the match due to his performance.

Afterwards, he wasn’t used by the company at all until a September taping of Collision, where he was once again used in a dark match. His last match took place in the 7th October edition of AEW Collision in yet another dark match, where he was victorious over Jon Cruz.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson was asked about EJ Nduka’s status in AEW. Johnson noted that the belief is he has signed a contract with AEW but besides a few dark matches, he hasn’t been used at all.


The belief is that the former MLW Tag Team Champion is signed to AEW but other than a few dark matches hasn’t been used lately.  Unless there’s an injury, I don’t know why he isn’t in the mix.  Hopefully soon.

AEW has many talented competitors who haven’t been used much at all for the past year and EJ Nduka is simply one of them now. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what will become of Nduka in the end.
