He added that the wrestler hasn’t yet signed with IMPACT Wrestling, which still keeps his way open to join AEW, however as per the expectations right now, he will most probably sign with IMPACT. Alvares also said the as he mentioned a few weeks ago, that he believes Wyatt won't join AEW.

Earlier in September, the wrestler took to Twitter and posted a series of tweets, which teased his return to the ring. Replying to a fan’s tweet about missing him in the ring, Wyatt said that everything will be clear soon, and also mentioned in his tweet that revenge is a confession of pain. Following these tweets, fans speculated that he would follow the footsteps of Daniel Bryan, Adam Cole, and CM Punk and join AEW. However that didn’t happen, and now he is being linked with IMPACT Wrestling.
