AEW Planning To Bring Back Anthony Henry Following Release

Anthony Henry heading back to AEW

Anthony Henry was released by All Elite Wrestling this week but he won't be gone from the promotion for long.

Speaking on the pre-Supercard of Honor media call, Tony Khan revealed that Henry will be back in AEW and Ring of Honor once he recovers from a broken jaw

"As an example, one of the things that has come up is Anthony Henry. He's somebody who's done great work in ROH. I really like Anthony and his team, The WorkHorsemen. Anthony got injured on an independent show. I do think when our wrestlers, there's a double-edged sword here, when we book independent shows, injuries can happen, and there's a risk to that, and they can affect the wrestler's career, and frankly, here in AEW, it changes our plans, or in ROH, it can change our plans when the talent get injured here, and by the same token, it changes our plans when people get injured on the outside. Any time anybody gets injured here, I feel responsible, and when it happens on the independents, it's a challenging grey area. I've had a little bit of time to reflect and think about it. Anthony's gonna be healing up soon, and I've thought about it, and Anthony's gonna come back to AEW and ROH when he's cleared, which is gonna be pretty soon, and I think we've worked something good out. So I'd like to have Anthony back in AEW/ROH," Khan said.

Anthony Henry addressed the announcement that he would be returning to AEW/ROH, tweeting:

"What a week! Obviously, I was not happy with what happened earlier in the week. However, I am estatic about being back! I believe in the locker room at AEW and cannot wait to be back in action. To those who voiced their support for me this week: thank you from the bottom of my heart. I never knew that what I do impacted so many. I've never had anyone rally behind me like that. It is an unreal feeling. I love you all. See you soon!"

Anthony Henry made his AEW debut back in September 2021. He is one-half of The WorkHorsemen with JD Drake.
