“Gearl Hebner” Aubrey Edwards announced through her social media channels yesterday that she has signed a full-time contract as a referee with AEW. Edwards officiated the main event from Saturday’s All Out show between Chris Jericho and Adam “Hangman” Page.
She posted the following to announce her signing with AEW:
“I can’t thank
@AEWrestling enough for the opportunities they’ve already given me. I have never been happier. Matt, Nick, Cody, Brandi, Kenny, Tony, everybody…they are all the most wonderful people! See you in DC on October 2nd on @AEWonTNT <3,” a subsequent Tweet read.
