He detailed when and how he received the offer. 

For several years, Aaron Solo has been a part of All Elite Wrestling. He was introduced as a member of Cody Rhodes’ Nightmare Factory and then transitioned into ‘The Factory’ that was led by Q.T. Marshall. 

Present day, Solo is a member of Q.T.V. and the crew joined Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast to discuss the formation of the group and their respective journeys in AEW. Solo confirmed that he is under contract and recounted receiving the offer from Christopher Daniels via email. 

So I remember we had to do the spit test for COVID, especially with the west coast guys before we flew out and I was turning in my test at FedEx and I had an email from C.D. (Christopher Daniels) and it said, ‘Congratulations on your hard work. We’re offering you a contract. Here it is. If you accept it then sign it and send it back’ and all that and yeah, it’s funny because I remember that day and I remember being so excited signing it and then I was just kind of sitting in my bed afterwards. But I had romanticized this entire thing for years because it took me 11 years before I got an official contract and I romanticized this thing of going into this big office and shaking everyone’s hand and all that… Not at all (was it this big romanticized moment). Regardless, it still gave me what I wanted so, it’s okay that my big, romanticized signing of the contract didn’t happen but…

Solo, Q.T. Marshall and Johnny TV were on the losing end of a six-man tag on the 7/21 episode of Rampage. They fell in defeat to Billy Gunn and The Acclaimed (Max Caster & Anthony Bowens). 

After The Acclaimed and Gunn lost their World Trios Title match to House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews) on Collision, Gunn left his boots in the ring

He’s been on their roster page for a few years now, so I didn’t think he wasn’t under contract.
