Erick Redbeard looks back at his return to AEW.
On the lead-up to the Revolution pay-per-view, Erick Redbeard made his return to AEW and evened the odds for a six-man tag against House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews). Redbeard aligned with PAC and Penta Oscuro.
At the Revolution event, they fell in defeat to House of Black. That was Redbeard’s second appearance for AEW and he explained to the Wrestle Buddy podcast that he’d be open to going back if there is a story that calls for it. He was asked if he’d want to sign full-time, but Redbeard is not interested in just taking a spot and there being no solid plans for him.
Man, I would love to go and have a feud, a story and PAC. That was fun, because it was a couple day-story. To me, that was cool. It was cool to come back, do a couple things and then leave. There’s so many guys. I would hate to go and just take up space, take up a spot. I don’t like it when guys go in, take up a spot and they have no plans for them and then they just sit there. Like yeah, paychecks are really nice, don’t get me wrong. Paychecks are always good, like thank you. But, I wanna perform too. So, I wanna present the best part of myself at this point that I can.
At the Brodie Lee tribute show, Redbeard shared a moment with current AEW World Champion Hangman Adam Page and members of the Dark Order.
He does not to assume the role as on-screen leader of Dark Order and wants that to be Brodie Lee’s legacy. He added that he always wants Brodie to be remembered as the sole leader of the group.
I can give him an answer to that immediately, no legacy. He created that in the short amount of time he was with us and I want him to always be remembered as the leader of that group.
