Malcolm Bivens, now going by Stokely Hathaway, turned down a lucrative contract from WWE, per Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Stokely Hathaway joined WWE in 2019 as Babatunde’s manager, the present Commander Azeez. After NXT’s rebrand to NXT 2.0, the charsimatic manager managed Diamond Mine, a group of Tyler Rust, Hachiman and Roderick Strong. However, Bivens requested his release which was granted in May this year.

Dave Meltzer noted that Stokely Hathaway was offered a $250,000 contract that he turned down.

“It should be noted Hathaway was offered a WWE main roster contract a few months ago at $250,000 and turned it down,”

Stokely showed up in AEW at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view during the match between Anna Jay and Jade Cargill. He aligned himself with the TBS Champion in a move that promises to boost the Baddies Section’s leader’s stock even further.
