In February of 2007, The Fritz would return to the world of professional wrestling after signing a contract with ECFW to take on a dual role of road agent, as well as taking on a managerial role for Jeffery Wolfe, who's career was just taking off. In this time, The Fritz was often seen at ringside with his former student, Jeffery Wolfe the gig didn't last long before the role was phased out due to Jeffery's ECFW Championship victory. The Fritz was taken off TV with the exception of the odd Lonewolf promo he would appear in.

Wilson remained in critical condition for seven days before suffering a second heart attack in the hospital, a heart attack that would ultimately take his life, Avery Wilson died at forty-eight years old. It was later revealed that Wilson was slated to take on the role of manager for Matthew Cross, a student of Jeffery Wolfe who was set to debut in December of 2007.
