Of all the cameos AEW has had in its first year on television. Soul Train Jones (also known as Virgil), was perhaps the biggest one to date.
Soul Train appeared in a video package to hype Chris Jericho's match against Cody at AEW Full Gear and made a return appearance for the Inner Circle celebration.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Soul Train discussed his AEW appearance.
"I think Jericho called one of my agents. Me and Jericho are cool. The old man owns the Jacksonville Jaguars. I spoke to him. He said his son runs this AEW. I saw all the old dogs there like Billy Gunn. All the guys from WCW like Arn Anderson, Diamond Dallas Page are down there," he said.
Soul Train's most famous gig was as Virgil/Vincent, the second for 'The Million Dollar Man' Ted Dibiase in WCW and WWE. He also worked with Ted Dibiase Jr. in 2010 as an homage to the past.
When asked about working with Dibiase Jr, Soul Train said, "Junior is alright, but I mean, how are you going to surpass your father? His father started in the mid-south. He worked with the best guys in the world then with Junk Yard Dog and all the other guys. How can he touch Ted Sr.? He can't pass his father. That's why the angle didn't really go nowhere. Me and The Million Dollar Man went around the world. People were coming to see Ted and I got to get some of that money. How can his son call himself The Billion Dollar Man and not throw out one penny of money? Ted was The Million Dollar Man, and we were throwing out $20,000 each night. People were busting their ass to get to the arenas. We were packing them in like rats because everyone wanted to get some of that money."
At Starrcast ahead of AEW Full Gear, Fightful asked multiple wrestlers from AEW about Soul Train's presence in the locker room. You can check out the written version by clicking here and the audio version in the video above.
