All Elite Wrestling has a roster full of talented performers and a long-term deal with TNT. They are willing to pay more to acquire more talents, but it seems they will not be getting Mance Warner for a long time.
AEW was apparently interested in signing Mance Warner to a contract. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that was not going to happen as he is still under contract with MLW.
Court Bauer said that reports of Mance Warner going to AEW aren’t true and that he’s got a multiple-year deal here and Warner isn’t going anywhere
MJF and Jimmy Havoc were allowed to work in both AEW and MLW. Their MLW contracts did not specify they could not work for All Elite Wrestling as the company did not exist when they signed their contracts.
