Former ROH Contracted Wrestler Signs With AEW

When Ring of Honor announced the promotion was going on hiatus and all talents would be released from their contracts, speculation commenced on who would end up where. The belief was Tony Khan had his sights set on several of the promotions wrestlers, and following the signing of Jay Lethal, he has added another ROH alumni in the form of Brody King, according to a report by Bodyslam. The signing reportedly took place over Thanksgiving weekend, and it is assumed that King was the mystery man featured during Wednesday night’s episode of Dynamite who had mist spat into his face by Malakai Black.

King and Black are tag team champions in Pro Wrestling Guerilla under the name Kings Of The Black Throne, so joining The House of Black makes perfect sense. For those not familiar with King, the 34-year-old began wrestling in 2015 and wrestled on the independents in California before working for MLW, Evolve, and PWG. Subsequently, he would sign for ROH in 2018, which led him to wrestle on New Japan shows and earn an international reputation. Despite being 6 ft 5 and almost 300lbs, he demonstrates incredible agility and speed and has the tools to be a star in AEW.
