Just a little over a week after quitting WWE after WrestleMania, Pat Buck (real name Pat Buckridge) is now working for AEW.

PWInsider is reporting that Buck started with AEW as a Producer and a source says that he was actually at last week's Dynamite show as well.

Along with Michael Hayes, Buck helped to produce the WrestleMania main event between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. Buck also produced the SmackDown Women's Championship match between Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair.

Buck reportedly cited wanting to have more time for his family as one of the reasons why he left WWE and the schedule would not allow that. Obviously, AEW's schedule will grant him a lot more time at home with his family. He also stated that he felt like he achieved his goal of producing one of the WrestleMania main events. Buck also did some work in the WWE Talent Relations department and he had been helping to scout potential new signings.

Buck's jump to AEW is not surprising because he has a lot of friends and former students there. He co-owns the Create-A-Pro Wrestling Academy in Long Island, NY and New Jersey with Brian Myers. Some of the names to come out of that school include HOOK, Kris Statlander, and MJF, among others.
