Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo might not have been seen by AEW fans in quite some time but he has now revealed that he’s been re-signed by the company.
Ogogo has not been seen on TV since June 2021 when he teamed with QT Marshall to defeat Cody Rhodes and Lee Johnson. That appearance came just days after Ogogo’s controversial match with Rhodes at Double or Nothing where Rhodes competed for the first and only time in his career as The American Dream.
Ogogo continued to be featured on AEW’s now-defunct YouTube shows Dark and Elevation but his last bout on one of those shows came in August 2022. More recently the English star has been in dark matches at Collision shows, defeating Jon Cruz in November 2023.
Anthony Ogogo Wants His Chance In AEW
Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Anthony Ogogo revealed that he has been re-signed by Tony Khan to AEW and explained that he just wants his chance to contribute to the company:
There’s working there (on the independents) and there’s working AEW. So I’m in a weird situation now where I think there’s a lot of potential around me and Tony Khan has signed me and he’s re-signed me. So he obviously sees something in me and I have this aura which people haven’t got because they haven’t done what I’ve done in real life. But it’s like, I need to get the experience. It’s what do you do? Do I put myself out and do every indie? Just go on and get the experience?
But then again, working in front of 100 people is very different to working in front of 5,000 against somebody else, or do I just kind of sit and be patient? But I don’t wanna be patient… I don’t wanna be patient anymore. I wanna show my worth. I just wanna show what I can do… If I didn’t think I could deliver, I wouldn’t be saying this. But I know what I can do, I know what I have. I just wanna contribute.
When Anthony Ogogo will be seen on AEW TV again remains to be seen. Another AEW star not seen since 2022 is set for their first match back on Collision.
