Jonathan Gresham reportedly asked for his release from ROH/AEW in a heated conversation with Tony Khan before his championship defeat to Claudio Castagnoli at the Death Before Dishonor PPV last night.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful tweeted the report today, with a story on Fightful Select (paid content). Sapp stated: “There was a conversation that involved Gresham ‘cussing out’ Tony Khan.”
The reporting comes after Gresham deleted his Twitter account last night. He also raised eyebrows during the PPV when he came to the ring without his usual gear, including the octopus mask.
The championship match was the main card opener and lasted just over 10 minutes.
Additionally, Gresham appeared on a live WrestlePurists YouTube stream yesterday, during which he said of Tony Khan:
To be honest, I’ve not really talked to him. I don’t know what he thinks about me. I’ve had very short conversations with him. When I say ‘short’ I mean short. So, I don’t know. I would hope that he values me. I don’t know though. So, we’ll find out in the coming weeks, months I guess.
