AEW Signs Olympic Medalist
All Elite Wrestling continues to expand it’s roster. While WWE has brought in boxer Tyson Fury for Crown Jewel, AEW has signed Olympic bronze medalist boxer Anthony Ogogo (h/t PWInsider). The 30-year-old Brit was announced as a signing during the final Southside Wrestling event on Saturday. Ogogo went face-to-face with MJF and punched him during the event.
I’m thrilled about this signing. Anthony will be our first developmental project as a company. For those who followed his boxing career and saw his Olympic acumen, you’ll be happy to see he’s now applying that passion and work-ethic to pro-wrestling training. Welcome Anthony! https://t.co/QLARQOTbof
