Last week’s AEW Dynamite
Toni Storm made her debut last week at AEW Dynamite with a win over The Bunny in a qualifier. Jamie Hayter defeated Skye Blue last week at AEW Rampage to become the second woman’s wrestler to reach the tournament.
Joe made his surprise return from ROH at Friday’s Supercard of Honor XV event. At the main event, Jonathan Gresham defeated Bandido to become Undisputed ROH World Champion. However, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt attacked Gresham and Lee Moriarty. After defeating Moriarty earlier in the evening, Lethal turned on Matt Sydal and challenged Gresham for an immediate title match. Gresham refused because of his previous actions. Gresham got beaten down by Dutt. Moriarty attempted to help Gresham, but he failed. That’s when Joe emerged, he faced Lethal and then choked Dutt.
Tony Khan declared that Joe “All Elite” following Supercard of Honor will be signed to both AEW & ROH. As this was later confirmed.
Joe will make his first appearance at AEW Dynamite. Supercard of Honor XV’s first appearance for AEW was in June 2015. WWE released the ROH Hall of Famer, former ROH World Champion, from his contract on January 6. It is believed that he had a 30-day clause which would have expired on February 5.
