AEW adds another name to their roster.
All Elite Wrestling officially announced that they have signed Jimmy Havoc.
On the latest episode of Road to Double or Nothing, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes, AEW Head of Talent Relations Christopher Daniels and AEW Coordinator Michael Cuellari are seen watching a video package on the UK talent. At the end of the video, Cody says he “loves Jimmy Havoc" and is ready to make the call to sign him. It's unclear in the video if Havoc has signed as at the end of the episode, Daniels and Cody are discussing issues with "the visa process," possibly eluding to a hold up in signing Havoc.
However, the official AEW social media account confirmed that Havoc has indeed signed with the company.
Havoc is a former PROGRESS Champion and Tag Team Champion. He is known for his hardcore matches, although Daniels points out in the Road to Double or Nothing episode that Havoc "uses it as a smokescreen to hide the fact that he’s very technically sound and is a good talker. The violence sort of overshadows sometimes, and I think he plays that to his advantage."
At MLW SuperFight over the weekend, MLW announced that Havoc would be returning to the promotion in the near future. He competed for MLW in October 2018, which was the last time he wrestled in the United States. This would indicate that Havoc has not signed an exclusive deal with any company.
