There was a story posted over the weekend by Ryan Frederick from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter regarding Bobby Fish trying to convince Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly to ask for their AEW release for them to return to WWE.

It was reported that both Cole and O'Reilly told Fish that they would not do that. Frederick added, "It’s possible Cole may have clued Tony in. If he did, I doubt he was the only one. I’m sure Swerve was one of them who did so."

It was later reported by Fightful that this story was "vehemently denied" by AEW sources and WWE sources say that they have not had talks with Fish.

While speaking on his Undisputed Podcast, he addressed this report and described the situation as “absurd.”

“Because guess what boys? After over 25 years or something like that in the wrestling business, I don’t know how contracts work myself [Fish laughed]. I guess what was most troublesome and amusing at the same time to me was how many outlets picked up on what was — because if there’s anybody who knows that it’s totally fabricated information then it would be me, Adam [Cole], Kyle [O’Reilly], Hunter, the people that it’s talking about who didn’t do any of the things, so none of it’s real and even people like Jim Cornette picked it up and commented on it and Jim and I have always had a great relationship. If I’m being honest, Jim hurt my feelings a little bit by believing some bullsh*t about me so easily. But yeah, it is what it is and I think that that’s what sucks most about it is that these people who write this stuff, there’s no checks and balances, there’s no ramifications when you are in the wrong. Therefore, they continue to just write whatever it is that they’re gonna write and it gets picked up by whomever and then it becomes — the fact or fiction line really doesn’t matter so, the whole thing is just absurd.”

Following his departure from AEW, Fish recently debuted for Impact Wrestling, although he doesn’t have a full-time deal with the promotion yet.
