Major League Wrestling has signed AJ Kirsch to join Rich Bocchini and Tony Shiavone in its broadcast team, the company announced.
The news was initially broken by SI.com, which Kirsch confirmed on his Twitter:
Kirsch first began his career as a professional wrestler in 2005 and competed on the west coast wrestling circuit. He was cast as a contestant on WWE’s Tough Enough season five.
In October 2011, he participated in the TNA Gut Check contest in Sacramento, California.
Kirsch was also the winner of The Rock’s “Rock the Promo”, a ten-episode promo competition series on The Rock’s YouTube channel. He recently voiced Buzz, the lead protagonist in the MyCAREER mode of WWE2K19.
The company has revealed that AJ will be broadcasting for the first time in Tijuana this Saturday for the MLW x The Crash Lucha Libre event.
MLW CEO Court Bauer said that he wanted to “add some youthful exuberance on the headset”, and that’s why Kirsch was picked.
The company will be holding their first-ever PPV on November 2, dubbed MLW Saturday Night SuperFight. It will will take place at the Cicero Stadium in Cicero, Illinois. Jacob Fatu (c) vs. LA Park for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship has been confirmed so far.
