AEW Teases Possibly Signing Former NXT Superstar

AEW Teases Possibly Signing Former NXT Superstar

January 20, 2022 0 By Tim Jarrell

It looks like AEW may sign another former NXT talent.

AEW has signed a lot of former NXT talent with the most recent being Kyle O’Reilly, Mercedes Martinez, and Jake Atlas. Tony Khan says he needs to be more selective going forwards on who he does and does not sign and Thursday AEW teased a possibly new signee to the company.

Thursday AEW took to Twitter to advertise a shirt for former NXT Superstar Marina Shafir. Now Shafir has worked three matches for AEW on AEW Dark most recently this past weekend. AEW has not actually announced the signing of Shafir to the company which is what makes this more interesting. Previously, the company has not advertised merchandise for a wrestler on the AEW Shop website that is not actually signed to the company.

Since being released by WWE last year, Shafir has worked for multiple promotions outside of AEW, yet since first working matches for AEW back in December, she has not worked for any other promotion.

If we do hear anything else about Marina Shafir possibly signing with AEW, we will have it here and on the PWUnlimited YouTube Channel.
