Ever since the new All Elite Wrestling promotion was announced at the start of the year, the members of The Elite have made a ton of surprise announcements. Not only is the promotion making its debut with the Double or Nothing event on May 25th, but a ton of young talent and recognizable names will be part of AEW as well. Kenny Omega left New Japan Pro Wrestling to work as a wrestler and an AEW Executive Vice President, and Chris Jericho, Pentagon Jr., Fenix, MJF, SoCal Uncensored, PAC, and more will be part of the roster. Just this week, it was also reported that legendary announcer Jim Ross and WWE star Goldust could be joining the promotion in the near future. However, Tony Schiavone is now teasing one more surprise for AEW.
During an appearance on The Jim Ross Report podcast, MLW announcer Tony Schiavone teased that a major name is coming to AEW but still has yet to be officially announced. Schiavone mentioned that he has known AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes ever since he was a kid and he praised his work in the wrestling industry. Schiavone took to time to mention that he will not be coming to All Elite Wrestling because he is working on numerous other projects right now. However, fans can still expect to see one more big name announced for the AEW roster at some point very soon. There is no word on who this person is yet, but stay tuned for any additional updates that may be provided in the future.
“Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho, I just think this is a great time for pro wrestling. They’re going to do some great stuff in wrestling, including bringing in somebody who has a great, great national name for himself, and I’ll just let it go with that. They’re doing it the right way and I’m pretty excited for them.” Schiavone said.
