AEW officially announced the signings of Ricky Starks and Abadon. Terms the deals were not disclosed.
Powell’s POV: Starks made his AEW debut last night in a TNT Championship match loss to Cody. He is a former NWA TV Champion, whose deal with the NWA expires. Abadon worked an AEW Dark match in March, then returned last night in a win over Anna Jay.
Thank you @starkmanjones for a great effort tonight. While he didn’t win the open challenge & the TNT Title, he opened a lot of eyes on #AEWDynamite. Thank you @CodyRhodes & Arn for nominating a great challenger; I was glad to sanction the match. Now: congrats Ricky you earned it pic.twitter.com/K9dTVRlv1I
