He suggested whoever gets a chance should put Blake on their show. Of course, this means Blake is just as good as any other Superstar and deserves to be working with a leading promotion.

“Buddy was doing stuff with the Mysterios. But that got dropped for [an] unexpected reason. I don’t know really why so me and him were just kind of left there. And we started reaching out to each other and starting formulating. Maybe we’ll pitch some ideas to get us back together. I think that would be – I always enjoyed wrestling with Buddy and we learned a lot from each other.”

“That was one of the fun times in my career was wrestling with Buddy. So we started doing that and I believe after Mania, I actually talked to him the day before I got released and he was going in to talk to the creative and some of the writers to see if we could make that happen but, unfortunately…” H/t Cultaholic

Even though Blake hasn’t revealed if he is going to join a new promotion, it’s possible he is going to wait for sometime before jumping back to move his career forward.
