Another former NXT name is under a deal with ROH/AEW Fightful has learned.
25-year old Blake Christian has been working a variety of promotions, including AEW, ROH, IMPACT, NJPW, GCW, and Jim Crockett Promotions since his 2021 WWE release. However, sources this past weekend surrounding the Starrcast show indicated that Christian is under an agreement with All Elite Wrestling, tied to the Ring of Honor promotion.
Blake tagged with Tony Deppen and Alex Zayne at ROH Death Before Dishonor. He's also worked several AEW dates, dating back to the Dark tapings in March. However, he worked three matches at the July set of Dark tapings, leading many to believe he'd been signed by the company.
We haven't been told if the deal is full-time or tiered.
