During the AEW Full Gear post-show media scrum, Jay Lethal said that the deal with AEW came together just a few days ago.
Lethal said that he met Tony Khan for the first time in person earlier in the day before his AEW debut. Lethal said that he will not be appearing at ROH Final Battle next month and he considered AEW his home.
Lethal was introduced during AEW Full Gear and he immediately offered to answer the open challenge of TNT Champion Sammy Guevara. The challenge was accepted and the match will take place on Wednesday night on Dynamite.
