As mentioned, Holliday is most known for his time in Major League Wrestling, where he is a former tag team champion with MJF. The pair were known as The Dynasty and squared off against the New Era Hart Foundation on multiple occasions.
Holliday remained a top performer in MLW until he was tragically diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in September 2022. However, on a more positive note, the star is now in remission and has been a free agent since April of this year.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Richard Holliday and his status with AEW as we hear more.
