AEW is not under any sort of hiring freeze right now, and Tony Khan seemingly proves that on weekly basis by inking talent to new deals. In recent memory, Khan brought in Mariah May and with Will Ospreay’s contract running out in NJPW soon enough, the whole pro wrestling world is watching that situation as well.
Now a new addition to their roster has surfaced on the official All Elite Wrestling page. This was confirmed by the AEW roster page on their website. The page saw some recent alterations, with the arrival and departure of in-ring talents, but it also introduces a fresh non-wrestler inclusion.
Kevin Kelly now appears in the “Broadcast Team” section of the roster page. Initially, Kelly served as the lead announcer for AEW Collision, a position now occupied by Tony Schiavone. Nonetheless, Kelly remains part of the broadcasting team alongside Schiavone and Nigel McGuinness.
Official news of Kevin Kelly’s departure from NJPW was announced on November 13th. Now, he is officially All Elite.
The current members listed on the AEW broadcast team, as displayed on the roster page, encompass Alex Abrahantes, Alex Marvez, Alvaro Riojas, Dasha Gonzalez, Excalibur, Ian Riccaboni, Jim Ross, Justin Roberts, Lexy Nair, Mark Henry, Nigel McGuinness, Renee Paquette, Taz, and Tony Schiavone.
Recent removals from the roster page have featured wrestlers like Brock Anderson and The Bunny, who have left AEW. Conversely, new additions include the Gates of Agony, the Righteous, Dralistico, and Mariah May. AEW is a revolving door so to speak, and that is common for pro wrestling companies. Only time will tell who leaves Tony Khan next, or who enters the situation from another company.
