AEW officially announces two new signings

Two wrestlers debuted on last night’s (June 17) episode of Dynamite, and they have now officially been added to the AEW roster.

First up is Abadon, who was a bit of a swerve on what was expected to be a showcase match for Anna Jay. Jay instead had her soul collected by the creepy and disturbing Abadon.

Next up is former NWA television champion Ricky Starks, who came up short on Dynamite in his bid to defeat Cody Rhodes for the TNT championship:

Starks is stoked about his future in AEW. He first celebrated with a song:

After that he thanked The Ryback. Starks was one of Ryback’s bullying victims on WWE television a few years ago, but it sounds like that’s all water under the bridge now:

Before we look too far ahead, it’s worth noting that AEW also gave the big “[insert wrestler name] is All Elite” treatment to Jeff Cobb earlier this year, and not much has come from it. In fact, the next day it was revealed that Cobb didn’t actually sign with the promotion. So we’ll still have to wait and see where things go with future booking plans for Abadon and Starks.
