AEW officially announces signing of Brody King

King made his AEW debut on last night's Dynamite and aligned with Malakai Black.

Following his debut on last night's Dynamite, AEW has officially announced the signing of Brody King.

AEW posted a graphic on Thursday morning announcing that King is All Elite. King aligned with Malakai Black on last night's Dynamite, with the two going by the name "The Kings of the Black Throne."

King made his AEW debut by taking out Penta El Zero Miedo, Griff Garrison, and Brian Pillman Jr. on Dynamite.

Penta El Zero Miedo defeated Matt Hardy on last night's show and then sent a message saying that he was going to teach Black some respect. The lights went out, then Black started brawling with Penta when they came back on. Garrison and Pillman ran in to make it three-on-one.

But Black started laughing at Penta, Garrison, and Pillman and then pointed to something. The lights went out for a second time, and King was in the ring when they came on again. He attacked Penta, Garrison, and Pillman, then King and Black laid out Garrison with a double-team powerslam.

King tweeted after AEW announced his signing: "THE WAR HAS BEGUN."

Black & King are the current PWG Tag Team Champions. They won the titles last September.

King was one of the top wrestlers in ROH prior to the promotion's hiatus.
