Former WWE Superstar Aiden English is heading to NJPW.. as part of the commentary team for Resurgence on August 14th.
New Japan Pro Wrestling will be holding their upcoming Resurgence PPV on August 14th from the Torch at the L.A. Coliseum, and will be available via FITE TV.
Aiden English, now going by the name Matt Morris, will join Kevin Kelly and Alex Koslov on commentary. New Japan also teased that Morris’ debut on commentary could potentially lead to something in-ring.
“Resurgence gets a new addition to the English broadcast team!
Bringing a wealth of experience in the ring and on the mic, Matt Morris (@DramaKingMatt) will join the broadcast team for #njresurgence August 14 on @fitetv!”
NJPW made the following announcement via their official website:
“When Resurgence hits the Torch at L.A. Coliseum on August 14, the star power won’t just be in the ring. A new name will be behind the announce table as well, as Matt Morris is welcomed to the desk.
Morris made a name for himself both in the ring and on the headset in his time in WWE, where he competed as Aiden English. Now Morris joins Kevin Kelly and Alex Koslov on the call for Resurgence. Could his background also lead to in-ring involvement? Time will tell!
The English archive of Resurgence will be made available on NJPW World. A live Japanese presentation is also planned on World. “
