After several weeks of rumors and speculation, Lance Archer has officially been announced as the newest member of the All Elite Wrestling roster.
The company announced today that he has signed. The rumors were out there. We previously reported that the same attorney who handles trademarks for other wrestlers in the company recently filed for trademarks on behalf or Archer.
Archer has wrestled all over the world and his stock has risen in the last couple of years in New Japan Pro Wrestling as he is considered one of the best big man wrestlers in the business today. He's a former IWGP United States and Tag Team Champion. He held the tag titles with Davey Boy Smith, Jr. on three occasions.
Archer previously wrestled for TNA Wrestling as Lance Hoyt. There is no word on if this AEW deal allows for him to continue working for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
