Formerly known as Tye Dillinger in WWE, All Elite Wrestling announced today the signing of Spears following his appearance at Double Or Nothing.

Spears revealed in an interview with Chris Van Vilet, his appearance at Double Or Nothing almost didn’t happen due to his 90 day no compete clause with WWE. If WWE waited an extra 24 hours, he would have not been able to appear.



Spears asked for his WWE release on February 19th, was verbally granted it on the 22nd, then given official paperwork the following week. Spears believes WWE provided him his release due to the mutual respect he gained during his time int he company.

His appearance during AEW’s Double Or Nothing ‘Casino Battle Royale’ was a one-off appearance at the time. Today, the announcement of his signing was revealed during ‘The Road To Fighter Fest” video.

Back in March, Jason Agnew of TSN’s “Saturday Night’s Main Event” revealed that AEW did approach the network to air their weekly show. No details from those talks have been revealed, other than the answer was not a “No” from the network.  TSN currently runs several networks in Canada.

TSN has a long history of airing pro-wrestling content in Canada. The network aired programming from AWA, Stampede Wrestling, WCW, and WWE.

Renne Young posted a photo of John Moxley on Instagram with a new right arm brace as he deals with his second case of MRSA on his elbow.

Moxley had to pull-out of AEW’s ‘All Out’ event on August 31st due to his diagnosis.

Judging from the photo, Moxley completed his successful surgery to remove the bursa sac.

This is a result of his first diagnosis of MRSA as Dean Ambrose in the WWE, last year in 2018.

The former ‘Lunatic Fringe’ says,

I ended up having two different surgeries… this MRSA, staph infection. I nearly died.

According to the Mayo Clinic, MRSA is Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or “staph infection” that’s become resistant to many of the biological antibiotics used to treat infections.

Take note that Moxley dealt with a severe triceps tendon injury in the same right arm, in late-2017; before his complications with MRSA.

According, to Medicine Net, MRSA is very contagious and Moxley is probably stuck with it since this is his second diagnosis in only a year.

In conclusion, according to the ‘Death Rider’ himself, he believes that he’s making a speedy recovery just in time for AEW’s TNT airings by October 2nd.
