New home? The rise of AEW has changed the way the wrestling world works, including the wrestlers. One of the biggest changes has been the rise of a new big budget wrestling promotion where wrestlers can go, meaning more wrestlers are at work. If nothing else, it allows people who leave WWE to have another place to find work, and that is the case again as a former WWE star will be making his AEW debut.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Back Later: AEW Announces Injury, Match Set For Dynamite Changed

Bryan Danielson is currently trying to earn a shot at AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Revolution. In order to earn a shot, Danielson must win a series of matches, ending on February 8. This week, Danielson defeated Brian Cage, but Cage injured Danielson’s shoulder after the match. Later in the night, Friedman announced that Danielson’s next opponent will be former WWE star Timothy Thatcher, who will be making his AEW debut. Since his release from WWE in January 2022, Thatcher has primarily wrestled in Pro Wrestling Noah. There is no word on if this will be more than a one off appearance.

He’s a tough one. Check out Thatcher in action:

Opinion: This is an interesting way to go and I’m curious to see what Thatcher is going to be able to do in AEW. He is someone who wrestles a style that could work very well for Danielson and maybe he will stick around after the one match. Thatcher would seem like someone who could do all kinds of good things in AEW, whether it is as a wrestler or a trainer. Either way, at least he has a chance.

What do you think of Thacher? Would he fit in well in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
