It seems that Marquez could not stay away from the ring for too long by the looks of things, because he made his return on December 28 at the TV taping for AEW Dark: Elevation.

A fan who attended the taping recorded some of his performance in the ring and it is said on Twitter that Atlas impressed the audience. 

In the video we see AEW president/GM Tony Khan join Atlas in the ring after the match to shake his hand and raise his arm to a delighted audience.

With Tony Khan joining in the celebrations after the match could this Mean that Atlas may soon have a AEW contract on the horizon?

After announcing his retirement in September, not long after being released by WWE in August and also Competing at ROH’s Death Before Dishonor, I have to say this was a very welcome surprise.
