Khan revealed that Swagger, who also uses the name Jake Hagger has been signed to them for a while now and both the parties had successfully kept it secret till now:
“You know what’s pretty cool about secret keeping is that Jake’s been signed for like a really long time, Jake’s been signed to us for like a really long time now. Jake can clearly keep a secret and so can we. For quite awhile now Jake was signed.”
The AEW President then went on to confirmed that Swagger’s signing with the promotion will not affect his MMA schedule and he has adjusted his schedule to be able to do both.
