In a tweet Tuesday evening, All Elite Wrestling welcomed Jimmy Havoc, a 15-year wrestling veteran with an impressive portfolio of work on a global level, into the fold. Havoc confirmed his joining of AEW in a tweet made shortly after.
In recent years, Havoc has plied his trade in promotions such as PROGRESS, Major League Wrestling, Insane Championship Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, IPW: UK, and even brief forays with ROH and Impact Wrestling. Havoc is known among PROGRESS fans as being the longest-reigning champion in promotion history, holding the title from November 2013 to July 2015, spanning more than 600 days.
Havoc has made increased excursions to the United States in recent years, during which time he would win the 2017 CZW Tournament of Death, while also being showcased on the weekly MLW Fusion broadcasts on the beIN Sports network.
