It look like Johnny Elite isn’t a permanent fixture of AEW.
John Hennigan debuted on AEW Dynamite Wednesday, being the mens joker in the Owen Hart tournament. He would face Samoa Joe in a competitive match that Joe would ended up winning via pinfall. It was not clear if Johnny Elite was signed to a deal or if it was a one off appearance from the former WWE superstar.
Mike Johnson of PW Insider provided the latest update. While Johnny Elite is not officially on the AEW roster, fans might see him again. That will depend on his availability and whether AEW has something for him.
“Speaking of Hennigan, who debuted last night as Johnny Elite, we are told he is not signed to the promotion as of this writing but the door is open for additional appearances down the line after he wrestled Samoa Joe last night.”Mike Johnson Of PW Insider
Time will tell if Johnny Elite will wrestle for AEW again, and if he will sign a full time contract with the promotion following his debut on Wednesday night.
