Tony Khan recently announced that top indie talent Lee Moriarty has signed a full-time contract with AEW.
According to Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda Wrestling, who was present at the Fift Arena in Cincinnati, Moriarty lost a match to Daniel Garcia on AEW Dark's tapings.
Moments before this week's AEW Dynamite went live on TNT, Tony Khan made his way to the ring and invited Lee Moriarty. The AEW President offered Moriarty a contract with the company, which the latter accepted.
Lee Moriarty first appeared on AEW on the 17th August edition of Dark, where he lost a competitive match against Dante Martin. Later, Moriarty also wrestled the newly turned heel Joey Janela on AEW Dark last week, where he also lost.
Even after taking his third loss against Daniel Garcia, it's safe to say he has impressed Tony Khan, who signed Moriarty after wrestling just a handful of matches in the company.
Now that he's All Elite, fans can expect Lee Moriarty to pick up some notable wins on Dark and Dark: Elevation before possibly finding a position on AEW Dynamite.
