Lance Archer makes AEW debut, aligns with Jake Roberts

Lance Archer has made his AEW debut.

He arrived at the start of Dynamite during a match between Cody and Ortiz. With him was Jake “The Snake” Roberts, making it clear that he was in fact the new client Roberts had mentioned the week prior.

Archer and Roberts sat in the crowd during the match, but eventually left before the finish, which saw Cody pick up the win with the figure four.

Roberts made his debut for the promotion last week, telling Cody that he had found a new client that would take him out. Archer was originally advertised to debut last week for the promotion, but he never appeared on the program. Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio noted that there was a change in creative direction over Archer.

Before joining AEW, Archer had spent most of the last decade working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. He last wrestled for them in February during the New Beginning USA tour.
