Stick around for a bit. We are coming up on the three year anniversary of AEW’s first ever event and the company is still going strong. The rise of AEW has changed quite a few things for all kinds of fans but also for the wrestlers themselves. Now wrestlers are able to have a different place to go aside from just WWE and one such star is going to be sticking around for a long time.

AEW star Kyle O’Reilly appeared on the Toddcast and revealed that he has signed a five year deal with the company. It is not clear if this is a new deal or the deal that he signed when he came into the company back in December 2021. O’Reilly has gone on to become part of the Undisputed Elite and will be facing Samoa Joe in the semifinals of the men’s Owen hart Foundation tournament.

Opinion: Good for O’Reilly to get a deal that he seems happy with and that he can be on for a long time to come. You don’t get to see a lot of people get that kind of security and O’Reilly is talented enough that he deserves it. I’m glad to see him getting to do what he wants and if AEW is happy with him, that makes things even better. O’Reilly is a talented guy and someone anyone would want to have so AEW is lucky to have him.

What do you think of O’Reilly? How far can he go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
