Hager made his promotional debut last October where he was paired with Chris Jericho with the idea of Hager being his bodyguard. 

Shortly after his debut, it was reported that Hager has an agreement with Bellator MMA that he wouldn’t wrestle until after his next pro-MMA fight. 

That fight has passed as he fought Anthony Garrett at Bellator 231 on October 25 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. The fight ended in a no contest. As of this writing, his next MMA fight hasn’t been announced. 

AEW holds the Revolution pay-per-view event on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in Chicago, IL from the Sears Center.
