Former basketball player Satnam Singh made his AEW debut last night on Dynamite. He arrived in the aftermath of the main event bout between Samoa Joe and Minoru Suzuki. After Joe defeated Suzuki for the ROH World Television Title, Singh, along with Sonjay Dutt, Jay Lethal, and Singh attacked Joe to end the show.
Singh’s debut was considered to be about launching his Indian brand for AEW because of the WarnerMedia/Discovery merger.
AEW programming airs on Eurosport India, which is based on a deal Tony Khan made with Discovery.
The director Khan wanted to bring relevance to India, by including the first-ever Indian NBA player. This player was drafted in 2015 and was left without playing for a team owned by Mark Cuban.
Santam Singh will be managed by Sonjay Dutt and they will promote AEW on Eurosport India.
