The recent unexpected releases of several superstars from the AEW roster have sparked intrigue and speculation within the wrestling community. The reasons behind Tony Khan’s decision to part ways with these talents were once mysterious, leaving fans and industry insiders to speculate about the motives behind the surprising move. A released star who got rehired by Tony Khan has now revealed when he will make his in-ring return.

The first to be let go was Stu Grayson, followed swiftly by AEW ring announcer Dasha Kuret. In total, approximately 10 stars have been released from AEW thus far. Alongside Grayson and Kuret, Parker Boudreaux, Slim J, Gravity, Anthony Henry, Jora Johl, Jose The Assistant, and the Boys have also been added to the list of departures from the company.

Henry’s recent run with AEW came to an abrupt halt due to an unfortunate injury he sustained during an independent wrestling match in March. The injury, a broken jaw, not only sidelined Henry but also forced him to withdraw from the AEW Tag Team title tournament, where he was slated to team up with his partner, JD Drake.

Tony Khan confirmed Henry would be returning to AEW upon his injury recovery. Henry took to Twitter and uploaded a photo of himself at the gym, revealing that he would be ready in about 4 weeks for a return.


”This dude is gonna be a problem in about 4 weeks…”

Tony Khan also revealed the reason for his recent slew of releases. Nevertheless, it is certainly great to know that Anthony Henry will return to AEW and ROH soon and will reform his tag team The Workhorsemen once again soon enough.
