A new wrestler has been signed to a contract by AEW following a terrific match on Collision.

In the opening match on AEW Collision in Edinburg, Texas, the Continental Crown Champion Eddie Kingston faced off against “Bounty Hunter” Bryan Keith.

It was a matchup between a popular wrestler like Kingston, who has risen to a main event level in the company over the last four years. Keith has also been featured a lot of late as well.

The match between Kingston & Keith ended when Kingston hit a spinning back fist to Keith’s head and that was enough for the pinfall win.

After the match, announcer Tony Schiavone wanted to talk to Kingston, but Kingston told Tony: “Go talk to Bounty Hunter, not me.”

That led to Schiavone announcing that Bryan Keith has been signed to a contract. Moments later, All Elite Wrestling Owner/President Tony Khan officially announced on X/Twitter that Bryan Keith is All Elite.

Bryan Keith is from Texas, so it was fitting that he was announced as being All Elite at a show in Texas.

After Keith was announced as being All Elite, Eddie Kingston shook his hand. Bryan Danielson also made his entrance and raised Keith’s hand as a jab at Kingston as well. Bryan was also in the next match on the show.
