He’s new here. The rise of AEW has changed the mainstream wrestling landscape in the United States. After decades of WWE dominating the industry, there is now a new place for wrestlers to go on a national stage. It can mean a lot when a wrestler who made a name for themselves appears in the other promotion and now it has happened again for a surprise match.

The main event of this week’s edition of AEW Rampage saw Orange Cassidy successfully defend his All-Atlantic Title against Trent Seven, a surprise challenger. Earlier this week, Cassidy had offered Kip Sabian the title shot but Sabian claimed that he was injured. Instead, Sabian was allowed to pick Cassidy’s challenger, choosing Seven. This was Seven’s first televised match after being released from NXT UK on August 18. There is no word on if Seven will be making additional appearance for AEW.

Seven is a talented star. Check out what AEW saw in him:

Opinion: Seven is certainly talented and has some name value, which is more than enough to see if there is something to him here. AEW has a tendency to bring in a lot of stars for the short term and that might be what they are doing again here. There are far worse names to bring in than Seven, so maybe there is a future for him with the company. He certainly seemed to do well enough in his first time out there.

What do you think of Seven’s debut? How would he do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
