Aiden English Debut Vignette Airs During Impact Slammiversary

"Drama" is coming to Impact

Though he did not appear on camera at any point, a vignette heralding the debut of the former Aiden English aired during Impact Wrestling's Slammiversary pay-per-view.

In the vignette, an unseen person was shown writing the words "Long Live the King" on a piece of poster board. After writing out that phrase, the word "DRAMA" was hastily written before "King". English used the nickname "Drama King" at points during his career.

It's not clear what name English would use in Impact. In his indy appearances following his 2020 WWE release, he wrestled under real name Matt Rehwoldt.

From 2012 to 2020, English wrestled for WWE, where he first gained notice for his opera singing before and after matches in NXT. He later formed the tag team The Vaudevillains with Simon Gotch, and the two won the NXT Tag Team titles in 2015.

English later became an associate of Rusev, and would proudly herald "Rusev Day" before his partner's entrances. After the disbandment of their partnership, English became an announcer on 205 Live, and was released as part of the "Black Wednesday" cuts in April 2020.
