All Elite Wrestling continues to acquire talent, and is expected to sign four more stars to the company.
According to Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer Radio, Sammy Guevara, Kylie Rae, Trent Barreta, and Chuck Taylor are all expected to join the company.
Sammy Guevara recently parted ways with Major League Wrestling, following double-booking himself for dates. MLW feels the best decision was to go separate ways, rather than continue working together.
Kylie Rae, who is known for her work with RISE, Shimmer, and Booker T’s Reality Of Wrestling promotion is expected to join the AEW Women’s Division.
The Best Friends, consisting of Chuck Taylor and Trent Barreta are finishing up dates for New Japan Pro Wrestling this week with the New Beginnings USA tour, and are expected to join AEW.
Barreta was offered a new contract with New Japan, but didn’t follow through with a handshake agreement he had with the company. Meltzer states that in Japan, it is heavily frowned on to not follow through with a handshake agreement. Barreta backed out of signing a new deal, and is expected to join AEW alongside his partner Chuck Taylor.
It’s unknown if any of these talents have officially signed contracts with All Elite Wrestling. It’s expected that once signed an announcement will be made during their ‘Double Or Nothing’ Ticket Announcement Party on February 7th in Las Vegas at MGM Grand.
