ACH has wish list for the indies, but it’s not clear if he’s free to work them

ACH (fka Jordan Myles) returned to Twitter this morning for the first time since he announced he was quitting WWE in a profanity-laced video on Weds., Nov. 13.

Along with a new handle with doesn’t include any reference to the WWE-trademarked, self-chosen moniker he called his “slave name”, ACH posted a wish list of matches he’d like to have on the independents:

It’s a good list, featuring some of the best wrestlers of color working in companies like MLW, Impact and another ACH targeted in his recent statements about racism in the business, Ring of Honor (those promotions typically allow their contractors to take non-televised matches elsewhere). It’s also similar to a tweet Cody Rhodes sent shortly after leaving WWE and we’ve seen how that worked out over the last few years.

The problem in ACH’s case, however, is it’s not clear he actually can wrestle anywhere else. WWE hasn’t publicly responded to his video, and they don’t allow their contractors to book their own dates. If they haven’t released him, ACH’s wish list will remain just that.

In its most recent edition, Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that ACH has been in touch with a promotion about an appearance, but uncertainty about his WWE contract status is preventing anything from happening.

The Newsletter also claims WWE tried to “help” ACH before he went public with his issues over a racially offensive t-shirt design, but he left Orlando and they couldn’t track him down. Everyone has been drawing their own conclusions about ACH’s health and WWE’s organizational biases, but with his social media activity and a brief statement from the company as the only on-the-record things to judge by, it’s difficult to know what to make of that item.

All we know for sure at this time is that ACH wants to be done with WWE. Whether that or any of his other wishes come true remains to be seen.
