Arn Anderson has officially signed with AEW.
AEW’s Twitter account revealed the news, with Anderson saying that he had signed a multi-year contract with the promotion.
“About a year ago, I didn’t want to be anywhere where I’m not wanted,” he said. “A year later, it seems I am wanted somewhere, and I’m very happy to say today I signed a multi-year contract with AEW. I am absolutely thrilled to be here with all this young talent and watch this company blossom into being the platinum of all of our industry.”
Anderson first appeared on AEW back at last year’s All Out event on August 21, helping Cody in his match against Shawn Spears. In December, he was announced as Cody’s “head coach”, assisting him in matches.
He had previously been a producer with WWE dating back to 2001. He was released by WWE in February 2019, reportedly after letting an intoxicated Alicia Fox wrestle a house show match.
