Mance Warner released by MLW


Mance Warner has become the latest talent to leave MLW. 

Warner has been released by MLW, according to multiple reports. SE Scoops had the news first. Warner had stated in interviews as far back as December 2020 that he was looking to leave MLW. He had not appeared in a match for the promotion since the April 11, 2020 episode of MLW Fusion, taped in Mexico in March 2020.  

Warner, 33, joins Jordan Oliver, Beastman, Bu Ku Dao and Leo Brien as names leaving MLW this week. MLW has yet to comment on the releases, but a PW Insider report speculates that CEO Court Bauer's desire to run shorter TV tapings with less talent is a potential reason for the cuts. 

Warner originally debuted for MLW in 2019, defeating Wheeler Yuta in his debut match for the company. 

In addition to his MLW run, Warner is likely best known for his work with GCW. He appeared on last weekend's GCW War Ready event, dropping the GCW Tag titles to The Briscoes with partner Matthew Justice.
