Every AEW Signing Of 2024
All of AEW's signings in 2024
Since founding All Elite Wrestling in January 2019, Tony Khan has proven that he absolutely loves making a signing.
AEW have unveiled several surprise incoming talents over the years, from Will Ospreay to Jeff Hardy to Keith Lee to Toni Storm as only a handful of examples. All Out 2021 even featured three signings, including two to cap off the show in Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole, who both remain two of the biggest incomings in the promotion's short history.
One signing has been made by All Elite Wrestling in 2024 and the expectation is the promotion will add more talents to the roster throughout the year. A number of talents are expected to become free agents in 2024, with WWE and AEW likely to compete for their signatures.
1. Deonna Purrazzo - January 2024
All Elite Wrestling added a new talent to the women's division to kick off 2024, with Deonna Purrazzo debuting as a full-time AEW talent on the first episode of Dynamite of the year on January 3.
The recently-signed Mariah May had her debut match on Dynamite and following her win over Queen Aminata, May expressed her unhappiness with having her debut match in New Jersey. This brought out Purrazzo for the debut in her home state and after revealing she was 'All Elite', she told May to tell Toni Storm that 'The Virtuosa' was looking for her. This led to a scuffle, with Purrazzo standing tall to end the segment after a slap and high kick to May.
Purrazzo signed with All Elite Wrestling after three-and-a-half years as one of the top stars in TNA/IMPACT Wrestling, with her contract expiring at the end of 2023. During her run with the company, Purrazzo became a three-time Knockouts World Champion and one-time Knockouts World Tag Team Champion with VXT partner Chelsea Green. Purrazzo also picked up gold in other promotions, becoming the AAA Reina de Reinas Champion and ROH Women's World Champion in 2022.
Purrazzo previously had a two-year run in WWE from 2018 until her release in April 2020 but she only had 16 televised matches.
