All Elite Wrestling almost added another luchador to their ranks before the global pandemic changed everything.
One of the original goals of AEW was to gather the best talent from promotions all around the world. AAA is one promotion in Mexico that they have a very close relationship with. Kenny Omega is still the current AAA Mega Champion.
A new report from Dave Meltzer reveals that, prior to the global pandemic changing everything and making the process of getting a work visa more difficult, AEW was ready to sign Aramis to a contract.
The report notes that Aramis was brought in to meet everyone when they held Dynamite in Indianapolis on November 20, 2019, and was offered a five-date contract to start with, but the pandemic making international travel difficult and the roster becoming so full, plans changed.
In the past, Aramis has worked with PWG, including being involved in the 2019 Battle of Los Angeles tournament. For right now, he is focusing on college until travel becomes easier, according to the report.
