AEW Name Officially Signs Multi-Year Deal

AEW Name Officially Signs Multi-Year Deal AEW

An AEW name has now officially signed with the company, though you likely already assumed he had.

Since Tony Khan bought and rebooted Ring of Honor, announcer Ian Riccaboni has served as the show’s lead announcer on HonorClub.

Riccaboni also subbed in for Kevin Kelly on last night’s (July 15) episode of AEW Collision due to Kelly being in Japan calling the G1 Climax 33 tournament for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

In an update from Fightful Select (subscription required), Riccaboni has now officially signed a multi-year contract with AEW.

Fightful notes that, along with fans praising Riccaboni’s performance on Collision, he also received heavy praise backstage for his performance on the show.

Riccaboni was one of the last original ROH contracts that lasted through Tony Khan’s acquisition of the company, with him being brought onboard.

Fightful also notes that Riccaboni was originally offered the role to do Collision full-time, with him citing prioritising his family as a reason he did not want to do it full-time, before recommending Kevin Kelly for the role.

Riccaboni will be calling the next four episodes of Collision due to Kelly being away, as well as him being backup for both Kelly and Excalibur when they need time off.
