Report: Update On Johnny Elite's AEW Status Following Debut
Johnny Elite made his AEW debut on Wild Card Wednesday
AEW unveiled their latest surprise performer on the May 18 Wild Card Wednesday edition of AEW: Dynamite, as Johnny Elite/Impact/Morrison/Mundo/Nitro made his AEW debut.
Elite lost to Samoa Joe in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Quarter Finals after a spirited display, but a report from PWInsider suggests this was just a one-off appearance for the time being.
The report states that the door is open for Elite/Mundo/Morrison to make future appearances for AEW down the line, whilst the former WWE Intercontinental Champion currently enjoying a run on the indies for the likes of GCW and AAA.
Elite’s match with Samoa Joe on Wednesday was the first time the former TNA/IMPACT World Champions had ever clashed in singles competition, with Joe getting the win with a Muscle Buster after getting the knees up during a Starship Pain attempt.
Morrison was released from his WWE contract in November 2021 after a two-year run with the company. Morrison originally wrestled for WWE from 2002-2011, under the names Johnny Nitro and John Morrison.
