Tony Khan recently announced that top indie talent Lee Moriarty has signed a full-time contract with AEW.
Moriarty lost a match to Daniel Garcia on AEW Dark’s records, according to Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda Wrestling, who was present at the Fift Arena in Cincinnati.
Just before AEW Dynamite went live on TNT this week, Tony Khan made his way to the ring and invited Lee Moriarty over. The AEW president offered Moriarty a contract with the company, which Moriarty accepted.
Lee Moriarty first appeared on AEW in the August 17th issue of Dark, where he lost a competitive game to Dante Martin. Moriarty later wrestled the newly rotated paragraph Joey Janela at AEW Dark last week, where he also lost.
Even after his third loss to Daniel Garcia, it’s safe to say he impressed Tony Khan, who signed Moriarty after playing just a handful of company bouts.
Now that he’s All Elite, fans can expect Lee Moriarty to take some notable wins at Dark and Dark: Elevation before potentially finding a position at AEW Dynamite.
