It should be noted that the internal list of Performance Center attendees, on which Sabbatelli's name was found, often contains errors. Regardless, the former NFL player showed up at the building despite there being no concrete word on whether or not he is heading back to WWE on a full-time basis.
The report also identifies Sabbatelli as the "NXT reject" that Chris Jericho put on blast for spoiling Eric Bischoff's Dynamite appearance on 5 August. "Oh, we know [who it is]," Jericho said at the time, "and he'll never f*cking be back in AEW."
Sabbatelli wrestled as "Sabby" on the 21 July episode of AEW Dark, teaming with Brady Pierce in a defeat to Best Friends. This was his first (and, at the time of writing, only) wrestling match since being let go from WWE, having only recently returned from an absence of almost two years when Vince McMahon cut him.
