Kyle O’Reilly has signed with AEW, appearing at Wednesday's AEW Holiday Bash edition of Dynamite.
Toward the end of a match between Adam Cole and Orange Cassidy, Bobby Fish appeared at ringside. This distracted Cassidy long enough for O’Reilly to appear from behind and attack Cassidy which eventually led to Cole pinning Cassidy to win the match. Last week on Dynamite, Cole had promised a surprise for Holiday Bash.
Tony Khan later confirmed on Twitter that O’Reilly had signed with the company.
After the match had ended, Cole appeared surprised by O’Reilly’s arrival. The Young Bucks then came out and didn’t seem too pleased about the new developments. The segment ended with Cole leaving with O’Reilly and Fish.
Cole, O'Reilly, and Fish will be in action on next Wednesday's Dynamite against Best Friends and Cassidy.
O’Reilly, who had been with WWE since 2017, had his contract with the company expire earlier this month. He was last seen on the December 7th edition of NXT, where he was laid out by Von Wagner following a cage match.
