Lately, the AEW roster is also thinning a lot, with some personalities who decide not to renew their contract or ask to be removed from the company for various reasons. In a recent update from Fightful's American colleagues, we learn that even the legend Tully Blanchard has decided to separate his own path from that of the Jacksonville company.
As we could see, the man did not appear on ROH Death Before Dishonor, presumably, he would have accompanied the FTR to the ring, and in reality, the opinions regarding this absence are mixed; in fact, we mainly talk about the fact that his Prison Ministry Group is the reason that kept him away from the event with another commitment.
In addition, the talents and staff who asked about the event where Blanchard was were told that he had "practically walked away" from the Ring Of Honor and is currently not listed in the names for future plans of the company, which we remember is always managed by Tony Khan.

After what was revealed, Brian Cage, who was part of Tully Blanchard Enterprises, the stable of the father of the controversial Tessa Blanchard, opened his Twitter account by posting a photo of him with the shirt of the stable and writing: "Ughhhh, well, here today, away tomorrow…."
During the pay-per-view, it was revealed that Prince Nana bought Tully Blanchard Enterprises and renamed the faction The Embassy. Although the stable continues to include Cage, Gates of Agony (Toa Liona & Kaun) and Jonathan Gresham as members, there is uncertainty about Gresham's future after the former ROH world champion asked Tony Khan for his release followed by a backstage fight because the wrestler felt disrespected.
Further developments on the issue are awaited. John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) recently admitted he was wrong to yell at Tully Blanchard when the wrestling legend returned to WWE as a producer. Speaking in a Q&A on his YouTube channel, JBL explained that he felt aggrieved about the way Blanchard treated him earlier in his career: “I had heat with Tully from an old event.
Tully doesn’t even remember it from what I’ve seen. I thought he was disrespectful to me, and I carried, stupidly, a lot of anger toward Tully for years. I saw him for the first time in WWE and I just exploded. It was unprofessional, it shouldn’t have happened. It shouldn’t have happened there. I should have just pulled Tully aside,” he said.
