Hart was released from MLW last week after reportedly asking several times since late November. Hart had felt disrespected by the company after they didn't back him up after allegations of his ex-girlfriend went missing in 2016.
In a statement from an MLW source to PWInsider about his release, they wrote:
"We felt Teddy was being not only disrespectful to us but to AEW and NXT and their locker rooms. If he had just been in the back, it's a non-issue. He was taking away from the talent in the ring with the antics too."
