AEW is reportedly considering signing Daga.
Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that ‘there has been talk’ of Daga coming into AEW.
Daga was signed to Impact Wrestling for around a year before being granted his release from the company in late 2020. Since then, he has worked with several independent promotions, with his last match being at AAA’s TripleMania XXVIII last December.
“There has been talk of Daga coming in. As far as Tessa Blanchard goes, that’s a decision that ultimately will be made based on the perceived value of her to the product vs. the negativity and backlash in some quarters such a signing would have. Impact made her world champion when there were still fans and there was never a visible backlash from those who attended, but there was a backlash in social media. AEW is a far bigger target for social media backlash, really the biggest of any company.”
Daga is the husband of Tessa Blanchard, however, this doesn’t mean that she would follow him to AEW. As noted in the Wrestling Observer, the final decision on whether Blanchard would be whether her talents inside the ring outweigh the backlash she received after allegations of bullying and use of a racial slur came to light around this time last year.
