Notable Free Agent Was Backstage At AEW Collision

This major free agent was at Collision last night.

MJF Richard Holliday

Former MLW star Richard Holliday was backstage at last night's AEW Collision.

Via Fightful Select, Holliday - who lives close to the area - was in attendance at Hartford's XL Center for Collision, though obviously was not featured on-screen at any point.


Of course, Holliday has plenty of previous with AEW World Champion MJF, having been a part of the Dynasty with the Salt of the Earth and Alex Hammerstone for a spell in Major League Wrestling, complete with holding the company's Tag Team Titles with Max. Even after MJF departed MLW and headed to AEW, Holliday and Hammerstone remained loosely aligned on MLW programming, including Holliday challenging Hammer for the MLW World Championship.

Away from the ring, Richard Holliday was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September of last year. The hugely talented star is now in remission and returned to the ring last month on the independent scene. Holliday also confirmed in April that he is now a free agent.


It was reported earlier this year that WWE had some interest in bringing Holliday in, so the 30-year-old could well have several options on the table where it pertains to his pro wrestling future.
