Another Star Officially Signs With AEW AEW

Following The Kingdom signing with AEW, a notable update has emerged on former ROH Pure Champion Josh Woods.

Woods has recently been teaming with Tony Nese. The duo notably challenged for The Acclaimed’s AEW Tag Team Championship on the October 21 edition of Rampage.

Per Fightful Select (subscription required), Woods has now signed a multi-year full-time contract with AEW. Woods had previously been working under a tiered deal.

Woods made his AEW in-ring debut in December 2021, before ROH’s hiatus. Woods was ROH Pure Champion at this time, and held the gold until Supercard of Honor in April, where he dropped the title to Wheeler Yuta.

This was notably the first ROH pay-per-view following Tony Khan’s acquisition of the brand.

This report on Woods’ signing comes after reports that Maria Kanellis, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven of The Kingdom have signed multi-year deals with the company, following their AEW debuts on the October 14 edition of Rampage.

AEW has locked down a number of talents with full-time deals recently, including RUSH, who had been wrestling for the promotion for four months before AEW announced that he was officially All Elite.
