Former ROH World champion Jonathan Gresham has asked for his release from his contract says Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Wrestling.
Gresham, according to the report, requested to be let go before his match against Claudio Castagnoli at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Saturday. He only recently signed a deal with the company this past April which saw him also appear on AEW television.
According to Sapp, Gresham was annoyed at the lack of communication over the past several weeks and felt disrespected. His match also opened the show on Saturday and was only given around 12 minutes, something he wasn’t a fan of. The report also says that Gresham “cussed out” AEW President Tony Khan on Saturday and things were definitely not cool between the two.
The former champ deactivated his Twitter following the show.
The 34-year-old has been working for ROH since 2014 and also worked for Impact Wrestling over the past year.
