Cody Expresses Interest in Indie Wrestler; Impact Signs Him to a Contract

-- Earlier today, AEW Executive VP Cody participated in a conference call where he spoke about independent wrestler Chris Bey as someone who was on his radar as a potential signing:

“I’ve been doing a deep dive on YouTube on a guy named Chris Bey who’s a prime example of you know somebody who could potentially be good for our singles division. We haven’t spoken to him or anything of that nature, but I’m sure this call will have some sort of — he’ll hear about it to some capacity.”

-- Well it looks like Chris Bey probably did "hear about it" as only hours after Cody's call, Impact Wrestling snatched up Bey, signing him to a contract that was announced this evening. Bey is an accomplished indie wrestler, notably with Championship Wrestling in Hollywood as well as Futures Stars of Wrestling (FSW) in Las Vegas. He was also notably on the card for both of the sponsored live events in 2019, wrestling Luchasaurus in May and The Human Tornado in June. While it's not clear if AEW's interest prompted Impact to sign him to a deal, the timing sure makes you wonder. Social Media Interaction
