I guess that’s really it. With so many things changing in the wrestling world as of late, it is easy to have trouble keeping track of all of them. Wrestlers are moving from one promotion to another all over the place and there is nothing to suggest that it will be slowing down anytime soon. That was the case again this weekend and now we know a bit more about everything.
The big surprise during AEW’s Full Gear event saw former Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal make his debut for the company. Lethal’s arrival comes after Ring of Honor announced that they would be going on hiatus to begin the new year. According to PWInsider.com, Lethal received his Ring of Honor release several days ago and will not appear at Final Battle on December 11. During the post-Full Gear media scrum, Lethal revealed that his deal with AEW only came together a few days ago. Lethal only met with AEW face to face on Saturday.
Lethal is an awesome addition. Check out what he is bringing to AEW:
Opinion: This is a situation that shouldn’t be all that surprising and it is the kind of thing that is likely to be taking place more and more often in the near future. Ring of Honor had a lot of talent and a good number of them are going to wind up elsewhere. Lethal is about as close to a Mr. Ring of Honor as you can get and it makes sense to have AEW want to bring in someone that successful.
What do you think of the signing? What can Lethal do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
