Tony Khan has announced a new signing for All Elite Wrestling ahead of tonight’s AEW Full Gear 2022 PPV.

Last night on AEW Rampage, Konosuke Takeshita and Jun Akiyama battled Eddie Kingston and Ortiz in a tag team match in the main event.

Akiyama connected with an Exploder Suplex on Ortiz to win the match. After Rampage went off the air, Eddie cut a promo and demanded that Tony give him a match against Akiyama at the PPV tonight. AEW President Tony Khan made it official and Eddie Kingston will battle Jun Akiyama during the Zero Hour kickoff show tonight before the PPV.

Tony Khan took to Twitter to announce that he has signed Konosuke Takeshita to an AEW contract. The 27-year-old DDT star has become quite popular among AEW fans as well.

It’s official! Congratulations @Takesoup, you are All Elite! After signing his AEW contract + winning again last night on Friday Night #AEWRampage on @TNTdrama, we’ll hear from Konosuke Takeshita on AEW Zero Hour moments before the annual #AEWFullGear ppv LIVE worldwide TONIGHT!
