Speaking to Koffin Radio, Toa says he's signed to AEW.

"It's official, I'm signed with them," Toa said when asked if he's with AEW. "I'm part of the ROH roster, but, I'm contracted so you never know when I might pop up on TBS or TNT. Watch Dynamite and Rampage."

Toa had worked a few AEW Dark tapings and that's when, according to him, he was told to stay ready.

"After all the Dark tapings, I had a conversation with Tony (Khan) and he pretty much said, 'stay ready.' I got my gear, had a conversation with Kaun, and we have the same type of mindset. We're both...we love to grind, we love to work hard, and we both want to be the best to ever do it. It was the perfect partnership for me and him to be put together. When that happened, we just had to stay ready and when we got that phone call, you get that opportunity, you have to get ready to hit it out of the park," Toa said.

Tully previously managed FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) when FTR took on Toa & Mike Reed on AEW Dark: Elevation.

Asked about working with Tully, Toa said, "The little kid in me, I was so ecstatic to work with him. It was my second time working with him since I worked with him in the FTR match. It was a nice little full circle. I had a little spot with Tully in that match, from going and grabbing his jacket to dusting him off and protecting him. I'm excited and happy to be part of TBE."

AEW has yet to give Toa the "All Elite" graphic treatment.
