The Young Bucks announced in this week’s “Being The Elite” video that Japanese pro wrestling legend Cima (Nobuhiko Oshima) has signed a full-time contract with All Elite Wrestling. Check out the video below or at the Being The Elite Youtube Page.
Powell’s POV: As always, the video contains NSFW language, so keep that in mind if you are watching at work. Cima’s involvement with AEW was known due to his role with the Oriental Wrestling Entertainment promotion, but the news of him signing a full-time deal with AEW is new. The video also features the announcement of the AEW Fight For The Fallen pre-sale password (AEWFIGHT) along with various skits involving the Bucks, Cody, MJF, Joey Ryan, and others. There is also a hint at the end of the video about another tag team that is likely AEW bound.
