Pen to paper. AEW has done a lot of good things since its inception less than three years ago. Possibly the most important thing, at least in the eyes of wrestlers, is offer a new place for talent to go. It has been missing for a long time now and AEW has filled a role. That is on display again, as another former WWE star has been signed to a contract with AEW.

Following this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, AEW has announced that Bobby Fish has signed with the company. This comes after Fish made his debut with the company, unsuccessfully challenging Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title. Fish’s signing was rumored since the match was announced, but nothing was ever officially confirmed until after this week’s show.

You’ll get to know him. Check out some of Fish’s time in the ring elsewhere:

Opinion: This is where AEW is such a blessing for the wrestlers out there today, as leaving WWE was often a huge drop off for anyone released. No company is close to WWE overall, but AEW is a heck of a lot closer than anyone else. Fish should be a good fit for AEW and at the very least he is going to have a chance. That is not something he got very often, at least on his own, in NXT so let’s see what he can do with a shot.

What do you think of Fish? How do you see him doing in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
