Maybe later? There are a lot of wrestlers who move in and out of the AEW locker room. The company has brought together all kinds of stars from present and past days, making quite the mixture of available names. Sometimes they need to bring in some fresh stars, but that is not going to be the case at the moment, as it seems a recent appearance was a one off.
This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite saw Johnny Elite (Morrison/Nitro) appear as the Joker in the men’s Owen Hart Foundation tournament. Elite lost to Samoa Joe in the first round in his AEW debut. According to PWInsider.com, Elite has not signed a deal with the company, meaning that at the moment, this seems to be a one off appearance. However, the two sides may be open to another appearance in the future.
Opinion: This is the way I like to see things, as Elite was a nice surprise but not exactly a game changer. He came in, had a good enough match with Joe, and then left without really disturbing anything. That is how something like this should have gone and it worked out well enough for everyone involved. I could go with seeing him again, though I don’t know if that is going to happen at the moment.
What did you think of Elite’s appearance? Do you want to see him back in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
