With AEW having now been established for four years, the subject of expiring contracts has become a hot subject, with even The Elite’s status in the company being called into question.

However, while much of the focus is on big names such as the Young Bucks, it’s an issue that also affects the rising stars of the company, including second-generation talent Brock Anderson.

Brock Anderson’s AEW contract is up in May

Brock is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson and made his debut for AEW in 2021, teaming with Cody Rhodes as part of the Nightmare Family to defeat The Factory’s Aaron Solow and QT Marshall.

More recently, he has been teaming with Brian Pillman Jr on Dark, with the pair defeating Dean Alexander and Rosario Grillo in their first match together.

Speaking to Steve Fall for WrestlingNewsPremium, Arn Anderson revealed that Brock’s contract is up this May, while his own still has a year to go.

“Well, Brock’s got about, I think in May his is up, and then I have another year passed that. I’m having a great time. I’m enjoying working for the company and I’m going to certainly get that last year now.”

Looking to the future, Anderson said he is happy to have another year and a half to help out his son in whatever way he can.

“What they have for Brock and I together going forward, I don’t know. I look at things and always have going all the way back to WCW when contracts came out. When you get a guaranteed contract, your wife has the luxury of planning your life because they do it anyway.

“To know much time and it’s not something that’s not going to change and all that, you can map your life out. That gives me another year and a half almost to help Brock every which way I can.”

Regarding his departure from WWE in 2019, Anderson says he doesn’t want to be somewhere he isn’t wanted.

“I will stay with AEW as long as they want me. That’s my one thing, and I said that after I left, well, I was canned by WWE.

“I don’t want to be anywhere that I’m not wanted anyway, not for one minute, not for any amount of money, not for one second. If at the end of the contract, if they would like for me to stay aboard in some limited capacity, I would love to.”
