There’s your next one. The wrestling landscape has been changing almost weekly over the last year and that was certainly the case last month, as Ring of Honor announced that it was entering a hiatus following Final Battle in December. As a result, most of its roster was suddenly free to go elsewhere, and now we know where one of the biggest names will be headed.
During Saturday’s AEW Full Gear event, former Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal made his debut, announcing that he was now All Elite. Lethal immediately challenged Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title and the match was made for next week’s edition of Dynamite. Lethal is a two time Ring of Honor World Champion and Television Champion and holds the record for most days as champion with both titles.
Lethal has quite the resume of his own. Check out some of the things he has accomplished in his career:
Opinion: Lethal might not be the flashiest wrestler in the world, but there is no one with more singles success in Ring of Honor than him. He is the modern ace and arguably face of the company and getting him is going to mean something. I’m not sure how big of a star he is going to become in AEW, but this is a chance he has earned. At the same time though, it’s hard to imagine Ring of Honor without him, and I don’t think there is much hope for the company ever resembling its old self again.
What do you think of the signing? What should Lethal do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
