Following AEW CEO Tony Khan’s announcement of a major signing to be revealed at this weekend’s Full Gear, speculation has been rampant about the identity of this individual. While many assumed it could be former Mercedes Mone (formerly WWE’s Sasha Banks), an internal belief reported by fightfulselect.com suggested otherwise. Other names thrown into the mix include Dolph Ziggler, Ronda Rousey, and Goldberg, all of whom are no longer under WWE contracts.
According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, his sources indicate that the person Khan will unveil as the newest member of the AEW roster is none other than free agent Will Ospreay. This comes amid reports that multiple promotions, including WWE, have expressed interest in Ospreay. Zarian stated, “I was told Will Ospreay. That is a big deal. A huge deal because WWE was actively pursuing him.”
