Ex-WWE Star Not Signed By AEW Despite All Out Debut

Tony Khan AEW

AEW All Out saw a shock debut but it might not be a long-term thing.

AEW was still reeling from the news that CM Punk had been fired by the company as All Out took place in the United Center in Chicago. It has been the most turbulent week in AEW history with the Punk fallout coming off the back of the biggest show in company history at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

All Out saw several AEW stars get their chance on pay-per-view after missing out on All with Miro and Powerhouse Hobbs two that made the absolute most of their opportunity. The two big men battled in a typically hard-hitting match with the crowd getting behind the displays of strength and toughness on display. In the end, it was Miro who was able to pick up the win who made Hobbs tap out with Game Over.

After the bout, Hobbs offered a hand of respect to Miro and the former TNT Champion accepted. However, when Miro turned his back, Hobbs attacked his opponent. Unfamiliar music began playing in the arena as Hobbs continued his assault before Miro’s wife CJ Perry made her first appearance for AEW.

She ran to the ring and clocked Hobbs with a chair. That provided enough distraction for Miro to get to his feet and take out Hobbs with the chair. However, The Redeemer looked less than thrilled to see his wife and left the ring without her.

Tony Khan says CJ Perry not signed by AEW

At the post-All Out press conference, Tony Khan was asked about CJ Perry’s appearance on the show and said it’s not a long-term thing with the former WWE star:

“I think it’s great to have CJ here. It’s not a long-term guaranteed thing or anything, but at least for tonight it was great to have her appearing with us, and I thought it was a great surprise.”

Given that Miro has already renounced his “hot, flexible wife” in pursuit of success in the ring, he might at least be grateful that she stopped him being taken apart by Powerhouse Hobbs.
