You can watch it below:
AEW President Tony Khan revealed that Ambrose has signed a multi-year deal to become a full-time AEW wrestler:
“He is a multi-year contract, he will be on a full-time deal. When we go weekly, he’s going to be full-time. Same as some of the guys, especially when the schedule is light, I’m open to him working some international and indie dates. He is full-time with us, domestically, essentially he’s our guy. Yeah, he’s going to do some international and indie stuff, but he’s definitely an AEW full-time wrestler.
As soon as he was out of his deal and wanted to talk to people, he came to me. And I was really excited to talk to him when he was able to talk to me. He’s been great and I’m really excited he’s part of the roster.”
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated has confirmed that Ambrose will make his AEW in-ring match debut on June 29 at Fyter Fest in Daytona Beach, Florida.
