After several weeks of speculation, All Elite Wrestling has finally confirmed the signing of former WWE superstar and New Japan Pro Wrestling sensation, Lance Archer.
Initial rumors suggested last month that Archer was in talks of signing with AEW and the former IWGP United States Champion himself has been teasing on social media about signing with the promotion.

Archer was last seen competing under the New Japan Pro Wrestling banner when he lost the IWGP US Title to non-other than Jon Moxley at this year’s Wrestle Kingdom 14. However, the exclusion of Archer’s name from this year’s New Japan Cup hinted towards him possibly signing with AEW.
A veteran of almost two decades of experience, ‘The American Psycho’ is no stranger to the pro wrestling fans around the world, as he has previously worked for both TNA and WWE, as well. And to those who have missed seeing him on their TV screens, will get a chance to witness the return of ‘The Murderhawk Monster’ on next week’s episode of Dynamite.
