London was offered a ‘look’ on Dark instead.

20-plus year veteran Paul London has competed for WWE, Ring of Honor and the most recent television wrestling product he was featured on was Lucha Underground.

During London’s appearance on René Duprée’s Café De René podcast, he expressed that he is not retired from in-ring competition. London would share that last year, he inquired about a coaching/producer position in AEW but was ‘shut down immediately’.

London would add that he was offered a ‘look’ on one of AEW’s Dark programs and brought up that Brian Kendrick left WWE, was brought into AEW and that blew up in the company’s face.

What a lot of people don’t know is that last year, there had been like some very loose discussions between myself and that company . Good luck.

In this same interview, London talked about his past interactions with current AEW producer Dean Malenko. His comments can be read at this link.

Who is he saying good luck to?

The square brackets used in the transcript seem to have omitted most of the quote on the forum. Would recommend reading the quote on the website.
