AEW officially offered AR Fox a contract following his threesome match with Top Flight and Death Triangle this week AEW dynamite. Fox is best known for his time in Lucha Underground as Dante Fox, but in the years since that promotion ended, he’s worked in promotions like Evolve, CZW, and GCW. He debuted in AEW in July on AEW Dark: Elevation and wrestled six times in dark matches before finally getting the nomination for a TV contest this week.
“It’s incredible to me. I don’t think I have the words to describe it. I grew up about ten minutes away and I had my mom here in the crowd for a moment that I never thought I’d get to. So I’m just waiting to be alone so I can cry,” Fox told Lexy Nair in a backstage video after Dynamite.

AEW’s recent signings include former ROH World Champion Bandido and Jeff Jarrett, who also serves as an on-screen character and Director of Business Development. Jarrett recently explained how he got to the promotion on his own My world podcast.
“The pieces of the puzzle started to come together and the role behind the scenes, as well as in front of the camera, all those pieces started to come together and it didn’t happen overnight. This has been kind of work already been going on for quite some time. It wasn’t something that just happened overnight,” Jarrett explained earlier this month.
“I don’t know if I’m more excited about the behind-the-scenes work or the executive work or anything, or the in-ring stuff, because Karen texted me on Wednesday, about 1:30 or so, and said, ‘What am I? you doing?’ I said, “I feel like I’m a 19-year-old rookie pacing through WMC TV studios.” I said, “I’m nervous about tonight.” I think about it. I wanted it to go well. I wasn’t quite sure about that,” he added. “So that’s kind of one of the messages I want to get out. Folks, I’ve been doing it for a long time, but I was as nervous as could be, and when the lights in the ring were restored, it was a surreal moment. The reaction had a little fresh coat of paint, little red guitar, little red and black guitar. It was really cool. I got a good crack on old Darby. I’m super thankful. I’m excited. I’m ready to get in to dig, in all sorts of ways.”
