AEW Roster & New Signings

Recommended Posts

(Rumour) United Kingdom wrestler Sadie Gibbs is the newest member of the women's division signed to All Elite Wrestling.

United Kingdom wrestler Sadie Gibbs is the newest member of the women's division signed to All Elite Wrestling.

Gibbs, 26, has been wrestling on the U.K. scene and got strong reviews for her in-ring work in Stardom in January.
Gibbs is still inexperienced, but she clearly is a great athlete and got over with the Japanese crowd with moves based on her gymnastics ability, and in particular, a Space Flying Tiger Drop spot she used on several occasions.

Former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Allie is the newest addition to the All Elite Wrestling roster.

Former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Allie is the newest addition to the All Elite Wrestling roster.

AEW’s Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes announced that Allie was joining the team on the latest edition of the “Road to Double or Nothing” web series.

In the episode, Allie is fitted for new ring gear by former WWE seamstress Sandra Gray.
The 31-year-old Canadian made her first appearance for IMPACT Wrestling back in 2013, but only appeared sporadically until she officially signed with them in 2016. She captured the Knockouts Championship for the first time in August of that year.

Allie Impact Wrestling 42618

What a steal for AEW to sign Allie after Impact let her know that they had no intentions of re-signing her. Their loss is AEW's gain. I'm not going to say this is going to a blow to the company at large but i still think it's a key talent of their women's division that they have let go. Hope for all the success in the world for Allie.
I guess she will continue to go under the Allie name instead of returning to Cherry Bomb?

Allie is a big loss no doubt about it but she ain't Tessa Blanchard,Jordynne Grace,Taya Valkrie,Madison Rayne,and Gail Kim

I think Allie is worth more to the company than a returning Madison Rayne and Gail Kim is in a veteran role. At 31 and with the built in familiarity with the audience i still think they should've re-signed her. Tessa Blanchard is probably more valuable at the moment but we can't value the rest of the roster to who is on top.

AEW Signs Jim Ross to 3-Year Deal as Senior Advisor 

Quote

Las Vegas, NV (April 3, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling announced a groundbreaking three-year deal with legendary commentator Jim Ross, generally considered to be the greatest pro wrestling announcer of all time. Effective immediately, Ross will take on the role as Senior Advisor in what is the most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history.

Ross’ first in ring appearance for AEW will be at DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the highly-anticipated event on Saturday, May 25, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. He will also work closely with the senior leaders at AEW on their roadmap to shift and reinvent the wrestling landscape.

“I’ve been part of the wrestling community since I was 7 years old, and there’s no greater thrill than welcoming the voice that I grew up with, Jim Ross, to our AEW family,” said Tony Khan, President of AEW. “We all share a common goal to make this the true golden age, to make this the greatest time ever to be a professional wrestling fan. And, as a business, we also seek to make this a new golden age for the performers and our staff members. Our entire team is thrilled to have Jim onboard and we can’t wait to shake things up together.”

“We’re all excited about having the legendary voice of our childhood come here and help the new generation of talent with his expertise,” said Nick Jackson, EVP at AEW.

“I’m moving on in a very positive way to this timely opportunity to be on the ground floor of one of the most exciting moments in the history of pro wrestling,” said Jim Ross. “I’ve known Tony, Cody, The Young Bucks and Kenny for a long time, and I know they’re going to change the world of pro wrestling. Their roster is already packed with top-level talent and up-and-comers. They’ve got a huge show coming up in May. They’ve brought in game-changing partners like KultureCity. And they’ve got an all-inclusive, welcoming culture like I’ve never seen before. I’m ready to change the world with them.”

The voices of All Elite Wrestling are set.

On today's episode of Road to Double or Nothing, AEW announced that Alex Marvez and Excalibur will provide commentary for AEW Double or Nothing on May 25. Excalibur was part of the All In broadcast team and received high praise of Cody Rhodes, who said, "he was the anchor of the show."

Handling backstage interviews will be Alicia Atout. Alicia has made a name for herself as "The Interview Queen" and also worked at All In as a backstage interviewer.

Finally, Justin Roberts will handle ring announcing duties for the company. Roberts worked in WWE as a ring announcer from 2002 to 2014.

Sports Illustrated is also reporting that Jim Ross will call the action at Double or Nothing as well. AEW issued a press release announcing a three-year deal with Ross, noting that he would be joining the company as a senior advisor. There was no mention of him joining the broadcast booth for Double or Nothing though the press release did say Ross' deal is "the most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history."

Really glad to see them returning for this next event. Alicia Atout has made quite the career boom the last year or so travelling between many different promotions offering them a backstage interviewer and doing interviews for her website/youtube (I'd recommend it). When AEW finally gets their own weekly show i wouldn't be surprised to see her sign on to be their week to week interviewer.

Looks like his debut AEW match will be squaring off against Cody at Fyter Fest in June, unless he debuts at Double or Nothing in the Battle Royal. I'm even more excited about Brian Pillman Jr making an appearance at Double or Nothing though i hope that doesn't lead to him leaving his current gig with the Hart Foundation. Not sure about Glacier being in AEW but his appearance in the battle royal will be fun. I need a Glacier vs Pentagon Jr face off one day.

I'm really hoping that Brian Pillman Jr. doesn't sign with AEW because I think he will be a superstar in NXT.

Former Lucha Underground wrestler Angelico has signed a deal with All Elite Wrestling.

Sources tell Pro Wrestling Sheet the 32-year-old South African wrestler recently inked an AEW contract and his signing will be announced soon.

The wrestler teased his signing in two tweets over the past 24 hours. The first said, “Is it time for a change?” The second said, “Tomorrow. A decision that will change my life and career.”

According to sources … there was interest from WWE in bringing Angelico to NXT, but the company didn’t want to get into into a bidding war with AEW over his services.

Jerry Lynn Signs with All Elite Wrestling as a coach

Quote

All Elite Wrestling announced today that they have signed former ECW World Champion and former ROH World Champion Jerry Lynn to work as a Coach.
Lynn reacted to the news on Twitter and wrote, "I'm privileged to be a part of AEW!!!"

There's no word yet on other AEW coaches but names working as Producers, which could be a similar role to what Lynn ends up doing, are Christopher Daniels, Keith Mitchell and BJ Whitmer.
Lynn is a 30+ year veteran of the business who has worked for WWE, WCW, ECW, TNA, ROH and others.

Angelico is a great get for AEW. Dude is super talent and can put on great matches. He seems to be a good pick for the growing possible AEW JR Heavyweight or Cruiserweight division that they're building, hopefully we can see him in some interesting match ups and he lights up AEW with some wild spots similar to what he did in LU. 

Jerry Lynn is a veteran in the wrestling industry and he'll be extremely valuable in the backstage area and would probably be a great perspective on some business decisions considering all the promotions he's worked for in the past and if they really wanted to he could be an occasional wrestling presence in casino battle royal type match ups.

Angelico was one of the guys i was introduced to because of  Lucha Underground and was absolutely blown away by his presentation. Angelico jumping off the the roof cross body his opponents and the time he did the same but instead to dropkick someone off the ladder. The man is a human highlight real though i think he has calmed down the high spots considerably since leaving LU. Regardless this is a great signing for AEW and their roster is looking quite nice now looking on the full list. But then they go and add Jack Evans to the mix?!! Insane. The tag team division in AEW is shaping up nicely.

Dean Malenko signs with All Elite Wrestling

Quote

All Elite Wrestling announced this morning that Dean Malenko has signed with the company as its Senior Producer/Coach just weeks after quitting his long-time position as a Producer for WWE.  The announcement reads:

Globally Renowned Producer & Coach Dean Malenko Joins AEW

-- AEW Signs Malenko to Multi-Year Deal as Senior Producer / Coach --

Las Vegas, NV (May 24, 2019) – AEW today announced a multi-year deal with world-renowned coach, producer and wrestler Dean Malenko. Effective immediately, the former No. 1-ranked wrestler in the PWI (Pro Wrestling Illustrated) 500 will take on the role as Senior Producer / Coach.

Malenko, who spent the past 18 years producing and coaching some of the biggest starts in wrestling, is a second-generation wrestler trained by his father, the acclaimed Boris Malenko. Malenko’s impact will be immediate as he joins AEW this weekend at DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the highly-anticipated event on Saturday, May 25, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“Dean Malenko has been a massive force behind some of today’s biggest wrestling stars,” said Cody Rhodes, EVP of AEW. “He’s never stopped being a major talent who was part of the ECW revolution as well as a fixture in the cruiserweight movement on Nitro. He’s kept an open mind to our world from Lucha Libre to Japanese pro-wrestling. He’s the perfect fit for our sports- centric mentality, and his experience will be invaluable for our team. Welcome Coach!”

“It’s not often you get an opportunity late in your career to be a part of building something from the ground floor,” said Dean Malenko. “The freedom to be able to contribute uninhibited will only lend itself to foster creativity and produce an outstanding product. I’m excited about what the future holds for AEW, and I can’t wait to be a part of the journey.”
