Report: Update On Johnny Elite's AEW Status

Johnny Elite wrestled Miro on AEW Dynamite

After making his surprise AEW debut on the May 18 edition of Dynamite, Johnny Elite was once again in action on June 1, losing to a returning Miro on Dynamite.

However, despite making two high profile appearances on AEW’s premier TV show, a report from Fightful Select states that Johnny has not signed a full-time deal with AEW, with the company itself allegedly confirming this to Fightful.

So far Johnny Elite has wrestled three matches for AEW - the aforementioned loss to Miro, as well as his debut loss to Samoa Joe in the Owen Hart Foundation memorial Tournament, and a win over Private Party’s Marq Quen on AEW Dark.

After his WWE release in November 2021, the artist formerly known as John Morrison/Nitro/Mundo/IMPACT has wrestled for the likes of AAA (as Johnny Caballero) and GCW (as Johnny Game Changer) as well as his appearances for AEW as Johnny Elite.

A former ECW and IMPACT World Champion, Elite/Morrison/Hennigan has also held gold in WWE, Lucha Underground, and AAA amongst others.
