At a WrestleGate Pro show in Nottingham, England last month, PAC squared off with Hangman Adam Page in an impromptu match that was actually scheduled for the following week’s AEW Double or Nothing show.
PAC lost the match via DQ after assaulting the referee, and the former WWE star then brutalised Page before revealing he would not be at Double or Nothing as he had shockingly quit AEW. It was later reported that this is due to creative differences between the two parties.
PAC did not appear at Double or Nothing, and has been pulled from any of AEW’s events going forward. Fans are unaware of PAC’s situation with the new promotion, but Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes has provided somewhat of an update.
Speaking to comicbook.com, Rhodes said that AEW are still trying to work through creative differences they have with PAC. Rhodes said he still wants to sign for former WWE Cruiserweight Champion:
“It’s kind of a current, ongoing situation in terms of creative differences. It’s the term we use, it’s not everyone’s favorite term to hear. But I love PAC, he’s amazing. He’s done a great job post-WWE with what he’s done with Dragon Gate, what he’s done with Rev Pro. And really the only thing I can say about it, because it is an ongoing situation, is that PAC is still part of AEW. It’s something we’re actively working on and making it happen. He’s a big part of AEW.”
AEW fans should have solace in the fact that Cody Rhodes is clearly not shutting down the opportunity for PAC to work with the company in the future. Rhodes is still very high on the British performer.
