Former NXT Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish is All Elite after signing with the upstart company following his first appearance on AEW Dynamite.
It was announced just minutes after Sammy Guevara vanquished The Redeemer Miro for the TNT Championship in Rochester, NY that The Spanish God would be defending his title on the 6th of October edition of AEW Dynamite against veteran Bobby Fish.
Fish faced Guevara in Philadelphia, PA. on the 2nd anniversary edition of AEW Dynamite but came up short when it came to the TNT Title with Sammy Guevara retaining. After the bout, American Top Team led by Dan Lambert and Men Of The Year attacked Guevara leading to his Inner Circle teammates Chris Jericho and Jake Hager making the save. Lambert then challenged the three members of Inner Circle to face Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page, and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos in a six-man tag team match on next week’s AEW Dynamite. That challenge was dutifully accepted by Jericho.
While the story between American Top Team and Inner Circle is continuing, for Bobby Fish his time in All Elite Wrestling is just getting started after the company announced on social media that Bobby Fish is indeed All Elite.

Fish has built a stellar career all over the globe but will be best known for his tag team with Kyle O’Reilly. Fish and O’Reilly have captured tag team gold in New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ring Of Honor, and in NXT as part of The Undisputed Era.
Bobby Fish was released from his WWE contract on August 6th which was rumoured to be the same day that his other Undisputed Era teammate Adam Cole had met with Vince McMahon about extending his stay in WWE. With Cole and Fish now both in AEW, half of The Undisputed Era is All Elite while Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly remain on the revamped NXT 2.0.
