Their eyes have been caught. Every wrestling promotion has to make changes to keep their roster fresh. This can be done in a variety of ways, but the easiest is to just bring in new wrestlers. These wrestlers might come from anywhere and sometimes they come in bunches. That might be the case again, as AEW has its eyes on one of the biggest free agents in wrestling today.
According to Fightful Select, Jonathan Gresham is expected to be signed to either AEW or Ring of Honor, with Gresham working on AEW shows either way. There is no word on when Gresham could be making his AEW debut..Gresham is the reigning Ring of Honor World Champion and will be facing Bandido in a unification match at Supercard of Honor on April 1. AEW President Tony Khan announced his purchase of Ring of Honor earlier this month.
Opinion: This doesn’t seem to be the biggest shock as Gresham is one of the top stars not currently signed to a major promotion. Let him go to one of the biggest promotions in the world and see what he can do on the grander stage. That opens up a bunch of fresh match possibilities as there is always room for a technical master like Gresham. This is some good news, and it is nice to see it seem likely to happen.
What do you think of the move? Who would you like to see Gresham face in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
