All Elite Wrestling are on a bit of a high right now, and they’re coming off their very successful latest pay-per-view – Revolution.
We saw a new World Champion crowned in the form of Jon Moxley, who dethroned Chris Jericho to become the new face of AEW.
The feud between MJF and Cody Rhodes will no doubt rumble on after the former’s victory in controversial circumstances, and the day must be coming soon where he gets his comeuppance.
But the most exciting current news is the fact that AEW are set to add to their already talented roster, as The Young Bucks – two of the Executive VPs of the company – showed up in Matt Hardy’s ‘Free The Delete’ series.
It’s been long rumoured that he may join AEW, and Hardy’s interaction with the Jackson brothers all but confirms that he’s penned a deal with the promotion, just days after he departed WWE following the expiry of his contract.
If that isn’t exciting enough, then AEW are seemingly teasing the debut of another former WWE star who looks to be heading to Dynamite very soon.
The teaser above was posted on AEW’s official Twitter account this morning, and the phrase ‘It’s Wednesday’ only seems to suggest one thing – that Luke Harper is arriving.
The former Wyatt Family member left WWE on December 8, and he soon changed his name back to Brodie Lee on social media, which was his name before Vince McMahon signed him up.
Many have interpreted the teaser to be Harper arriving on Dynamite tonight in Denver, but that may not actually be possible.
WWE usually apply a 90-day no compete clause to their released stars, which would mean that Harper’s expires on March 8.
Whilst you may see Matt Hardy tonight, you probably won’t see the formerly-known Luke Harper – but in two weeks time, AEW travel to Rochester, which just so happens to be Harper’s hometown.
So if you’re tuned-in to Dynamite on March 18, expect a monster pop for the debut of Brodie Lee!
