AEW has made notable talent signings as of late by bringing in Paul Wight and Christian.
Another name could be coming in soon as Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “there has been talk of Daga coming in.”
Daga is married to Tessa Blanchard. It’s been previously reported that AEW didn’t have interest in signing Blanchard to a deal. Meltzer noted that the decision will come down to the “perceived value of her to the product vs. the negativity and backlash in some quarters such a signing would have.”
Blanchard, a former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion, departed from the promotion last year.
Daga got his start in the pro wrestling business in 2011 and made a name for himself while working for AAA. He joined Impact Wrestling and worked there from 2019-2020.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Daga and Blanchard stayed in Mexico and didn’t appear on several episodes of Impact in the months following it starting in March 2020. Last October, it was reported that his release request was granted by Impact.
