A familiar face to longtime pro wrestling fans surfaced on this week's edition of AEW Dynamite.
Former WWE referee and veteran pro wrestling official Mike Chioda made his official All Elite Wrestling debut on tonight's special Tag Team Appreciation edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT.
Chioda appeared in the Daily's Place amphitheater in Jacksonville, Florida to serve as the referee for the TNT Championship "Open Challenge" between "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes and Scorpio Sky.
Additionally, Chioda was featured in a backstage interview segment, which featured Chris Jericho trying to persuade him to show favortism to him when "Le Champion" squares off against "Freshly Squeezed" Orange Cassidy in their highly anticipated "$7,000 Obligation" rematch.
