Lance Archer Reveals Why He Signed With AEW

He had offers from elsewhere...

Back in February, All Elite Wrestling announced they had signed Lance Archer. The Murderhawk Monster made his debut soon after and he has annihilated every opponent that has stood in his way. Archer will now look to capture his first title in the young promotion at Double Or Nothing as he faces off against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship.

Ahead of the pay-per-view, The American Psycho sat down for an interview with Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT and discussed why he decided to sign with AEW.

Archer said: "Yeah, there was definitely stuff on the table. Obviously, my relationship with New Japan, I'd been there for eight and a half years, there was an offer from them as well and nothing was quick. It was definitely a longer thinking process, a bigger decision process. I have a lot of faith and I did a lot of praying about this situation and it was one of those things.

"It ultimately came down to the people in AEW were much more attentive to having me a part of AEW. The numbers were adding up in the right way. As I said, the prayers I was doing were leading me towards AEW and just everything was leading me towards it.

"The opportunity to be a part of something that is growing, help that and help AEW become even greater than it already is, that challenge was just too enticing. Nothing was quick about the process. It took its time and I made some tough decisions but ultimately the right decision in my opinion. That's what led me to AEW and now we're here, I'm ready to kick some ass."
