Report: AEW Considering Signing Daga

Could the former IMPACT star return to the USA?

AEW are reportedly interesting in signing AAA’s Daga, according to The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer.

The current AAA Latin American Champion has been working off-and on with AAA since 2011, and has also wrestled for IMPACT, and Lucha Underground. AEW and AAA have a healthy working relationship, with Kenny Omega being champion of both promotions, as well as AAA’s Laredo Kid guesting on this week’s edition of Dynamite.

What’s more, Daga is the husband of Tessa Blanchard, with the former IMPACT World Champion’s status being a hot topic in the wrestling industry, although Meltzer says any potential move for Daga would not necessarily mean a move for Blanchard too:

“As far as Tessa Blanchard goes, that’s a decision that ultimately will be made based on the perceived value of her to the product vs. the negativity and backlash in some quarters such a signing would have. Impact made her world champion when there were still fans and there was never a visible backlash from those who attended, but there was a backlash in social media. 

“AEW is a far bigger target for social media backlash, really the biggest of any company. But when Blanchard went into a self-imposed exile when the pandemic started one year ago, she was probably the best in-ring American woman wrestler including Sasha Banks if you based it on her major matches.”
