Parker and Lee were the most recent guests on Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast and Jericho revealed that they’ve signed deals with All Elite Wrestling.

It’s going to be a fun show, but these are glorified AEW Dark matches and they need to be careful. If they put out stuff like this on a week that wont have CM Punk debuting, I dont see the ratings staying where they are now.

Jade is coming off arguably her worst match yet on Dark: Elevation, so hopefully she and Kiera will put together something fun.
