A former WWE name has discussed helping AEW at house shows.
All Elite Wrestling has seen its fair share of WWE stars on and off camera throughout the four years of its existence.
Speaking with Brian Hebner on his Refin’ It Up podcast, former WWE ring announcer Tony Chimel detailed the roles he has taken on with All Elite Wrestling at their house shows. Crediting AEW’s Vice President of Live Events and Touring Rafael Morffi, Chimel said:
“Well, they (AEW) started running some live events so I was at one of those just the other day on Saturday. But I’ll help out. I’ll do numerous things. Rafael Morffi’s the one that got my foot in the door and he does like 20 different things. I kind of help him out.”
“It’s kind of like (Steve) Rubin, do a little bit of (Mark) Carrano, a little bit of market rep stuff, a little bit of production stuff. I was helping this other girl, Lexy (Nair), who was ring announcing her first show the other day at Tupelo, Mississippi.”
“She did a great job. You know, giving her pointers with announcing and stuff like that so, do a little bit of everything, you know?”
“Which is nice and I’m not on the road 20 days a month so that’s a good thing as well and it still keeps me active and doing a little bit of that and working here at home. It’s a nice little mix right now.”
