The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has an update on possible plans for both Malcolm Bivens and Candice LeRae, both of whom left WWE recently. Bivens was released last month, while LeRae’s contract expired last week.

The belief in NXT was that Bivens did not sign a new deal with the company because he wanted to go to AEW. It’s believed that he will be there when his non-compete ends on May 29.

Meanwhile, while it’s unknown how Tony Khan feels about it, there is said to be some interest in LeRae in AEW. There are people in power in the company who would want her there. She’s worked with The Young Bucks in the past, including matches against them in PWG. There is no non-compete for her since her deal expired, so if there is interest she would be free to show up any time.
