Former Ring of Honor and IMPACT Wrestling star Jay Lethal has arrived in AEW and he’s already bagged himself a huge title match on Dynamite!
While AEW All Out in September was a night of surprises and debuts, Full Gear still came up with a surprise or two of it’s own.
After a brutal and chaotic Minneapolis Street Fight between the Inner Circle and The Men of the Year & American Top Team, Tony Schiavone headed up the ramp promising an announcement. The legendary announcer then promptly brought out AEW’s latest signing. Jay Lethal.
The former ROH World Champion immediately confirmed that he was “All Elite” before calling out Sammy Guevara. Lethal said that he wanted Guevara’s TNT Championship but couldn’t face him just yet because he’d just had a match. But there was nothing stopping the pair having a match on Dynamite in four days time.
At this, the TNT Champion appeared to accept the challenge.
