He recently shared the experience of how his AEW came to fruition and what led to him joining the promotion.

Jay Lethal spoke during the post-AEW Full Gear media scrum and discussed how his deal with AEW came about. He further revealed that the whole deal happened just a few days prior to AEW Full Gear. He noted the difficulty of finding a job being a wrestler and amid all the concerns, Tony Khan’s associates reached out to him for a deal.

Here is what he said:

“It all happened so quickly, only a few days ago. My head was spinning because — Today was the first time we met and talked face to face. Imagine being, for lack of a better term, jobless and wondering how you’re going to pay your bills and such. You’re a professional wrestler so there’s not a ton of jobs. You can’t just fill out an application anywhere. I got a quick message from some of Tony’s associates, which was like a beacon of light. But literally, that was only a few days ago.”
