As noted, Low Ki asked for his release during this week's GFW tapings, and initially, there were two stories out there: financial and creative direction. It now looks like creative direction is the reason for his asking, as PWInsider reports that he was looking to be included in the GFW Championship scene, while GFW planned on moving him towards the X Division over the next couple of weeks.
Currently, GFW has not granted Low Ki's release and he is still under contract with the company through October.
Returning to GFW for a fourth time in April of this year, Low Ki was able to win the X Division Championship for a fifth time in a six-man match on an episode of Impact. He then lost the title to Sonjay Dutt in June.
