Tully Blanchard believed to be gone from AEW/ROH


Tully Blanchard is believed to be gone from AEW.

Dave Meltzer reported that Blanchard is believed to be gone from the promotion. This follows a report on Fightful Select from Sunday saying that talent and staff that had asked were told that Blanchard was gone and isn’t figured into plans moving forward.

During last night's Death Before Dishonor media scrum, Tony Khan said that Blanchard is doing well personally and wished him the best, saying we could see him in AEW or ROH again in the future.

A storyline from Saturday’s Death Before Dishonor revealed that Prince Nana had purchased Tully Blanchard Enterprises from Blanchard. It was soon revealed that the group would now be going under The Embassy name, the longtime group associated with Nana dating back to 2004. Nana accompanied The Gates of Agony and Cage as they defeated Tony Deppen, Blake Christian, and Alex Zayne in a six-man tag match during the Death Before Dishonor pre-show. He later was in the corner of Jonathan Gresham, who lost the ROH World Championship to Claudio Castagnoli in the opening match of the pay-per-view.

Blanchard, who had managed FTR and was a part of The Pinnacle stable in AEW, revealed The Gates of Agony and Cage as part of his Tully Blanchard Enterprises stable at Supercard of Honor back in April. Two weeks ago, Gresham joined the group after turning on Lee Moriarty on Rampage. Blanchard had been seen as recently as this past Friday’s Rampage, where he was seen with the group in the crowd staring down Claudio Castagnoli.
