On the back of Willow Nightingale signing with AEW, it appears a former WWE star has done the same despite not getting the all-important ‘All Elite’ graphic.
All Elite Wrestling seems never to be far away from adding new faces to its roster and since the formation of the company in early 2019 these announcements have always come with the ‘All Elite’ graphic announcing their arrival.
Former WWE broadcaster Renee Paquette received the treatment before she debuted for the company in her hometown of Toronto on Dynamite. And even more recently Willow Nightingale received the graphic on the news that she had signed a deal with the company.
A new report has now shed light on a former WWE star seemingly having been signed to a deal with AEW despite not receiving the confirmatory graphic. Fightful Select has reported that there are “several” talents that haven’t received the graphic despite being on full-time deals, one of those being the head of The Trustbusters, Ariya Daivari.
Besides not having received the customary graphic, Ariya Daivari is also not listed on AEW’s website as an official part of the company’s roster. Daivari’s Trustbuster teammate Parker Boudreaux is listed on the roster page and did receive the ‘All Elite’ graphic when his deal with the company was announced.
