All Elite Wrestling has announced the signing of former ECW Champion and former ROH World Champion Jerry Lynn in a coach position.
The company revealed the news via a tweet from their Official Twitter account and replying to it, Lynn claimed that he is privileged to become a part of the promotion:
Jerry is a 30 year veteran of the business and he has worked for almost all major wrestling promotions in America since his debut in the industry back in 1988.
Since his debut, he has had stints with WCW, the original ECW, WWE, TNA and ROH and he has also worked for a number of promotions outside of the continent during his tours.
In his long and illustrated career, Jerry Lynn has won over a dozen championships including the ECW Championship and the Ring Of Honor World Heavyweight Championship.
It’s interesting to note here that he also won the NWA Tag Team Championship with the current WWE Star AJ Styles while TNA was in its early days in 2002 and they held a tournament to crown new champions.
Jerry is the first person to have signed officially as a coach by AEW. Though there are other stars in the company who people believe will be working in a similar capacity too, including Christopher Daniels and Billy Gunn.
