New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) announced today (July 21) that former WWE star Aiden English will be joining the English announce team starting with the upcoming Resurgence event on August 14.
NJPW posted a statement on their English website to announce that Engish, now going by the name Matt Morris, will join Kevin Kelly and Alex Koslov behind the desk. The statement reads:
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!
Resurgence will be presented live in English as a timed exclusive on FITE.
The English archive of Resurgence will be made available on NJPW World. A live Japanese presentation is also planned on World.
English is a former NXT Tag Team Champion in WWE, and spent a year doing colour commentary for 205 Live before being released by the company in April 2020.
The Drama King has been a busy man lately, as a vignette recently aired at IMPACT Wrestling’s Slammiversary event teasing his impending debut for the promotion.
