Shawn Spears To Be Featured As "Key Player" In AEW

It looks like Shawn Spears, formerly known as Tye Dillinger in WWE, may have found a new home at All Elite Wrestling.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Spears is expected to be a "key player" in AEW.

Spears made an impact at AEW Fyter Fest on Saturday night after he blasted Cody Rhodes with an unprotected chair shot. The chair shot resulted in the Nightmare Family member having blood pouring out of the back of his head, a gash that required 12-staples to close. Social Media Interaction
