Former ROH star Brody King has reportedly signed with AEW, as per Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net.
Haynes reports that an AEW source said that King’s signing was a ‘done deal’ by thanksgiving weekend, with the signing expected to have happened shortly after ROH announced it’s hiatus.
In October, ROH announced that after the December 11 Final Battle pay-per-view, the promotion would halt live events to be ‘reimagined‘ during the first quarter of 2022. All contracted in-ring performers were informed that they were going to be released from their contracts.
During Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite, Malakai Black teased the arrival of Brody King, with a vignette ending with Black blowing mist in somebody’s face, and telling them ‘now you are so much more than a King’.about:blank
