Former WWE Superstar Signs With AEW at AEW Revolution

A former WWE Superstar officially signed with All Elite Wrestling at AEW Revolution. One of the major reasons wrestling fans were looking forward to the Revolution pay-per-view is not only to see all of the matches capping on some big stories, but it's often where the company showcases their next major signing. This was especially the case this time around as AEW has signed yet another former WWE superstar who was previously let go by that promotion as part of several waves of budget cuts over the last two years. This signing isn't as surprising to many fans, however. 

It was revealed during Revolution that Shane "Swerve" Strickland (who previously performed with the WWE as Isiah "Swerve" Scott as part of the Hit Row faction on WWE NXT and SmackDown) has officially signed with All Elite Wrestling. This followed reports of him signing with the company popping up last month, and now it's officially confirmed as he's been welcomed to the world of AEW and its fans with a lot of love already. Check out the announcement below:
