February 10th, 2021 will be a day Lee Johnson will never forget.
Lee Johnson was a staple of AEW Dark throughout the days of the global pandemic. After 29 straight losses, Lee Johnson teamed with Cody Rhodes on the February 10th episode of Dynamite and scored the winning pinfall over Peter Avalon.
Following this match, Johnson would cut a promo saying that he owes everything to the Rhodes family for trusting in him. Also following this match, Tony Khan would confirm that Lee Johnson is officially signed to All Elite Wrestling.
In April most of the roster couldn’t travel & we needed local talent for #AEWDynamite. @CodyRhodes recommended his pupil @BigShottyLee. Lee came & worked so hard. I was blown away & kept booking him. With Cody’s guidance Lee got his 1st win tonight! Congrats Lee now it’s official pic.twitter.com/hnINnF5Iep— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) February 11, 2021
