Pro wrestling veteran Frankie Kazarian, who trained with Killer Kowalski and made his wrestling debut on May 15th, 1998, were one of AEW’s first signees, alongside his SCU partners in Christopher Daniels and Scorpio Sky. SCU would then make their AEW debut at the Double or Nothing Event, defeating Strong Hearts (CIMA, El Lindaman and T-Hawk) in 6-Man Tag Team action.
As previously reported, several AEW contracts are set to expire soon, unless the company renews their deals and those stars include Brian Cage, Marko Stunt, Joey Janela and Lio Rush, but Frankie Kazarian is not one of those stars as PWInsider.com reports that the professional wrestling veteran has signed a new contract with AEW, however, the terms of his new contract has not been disclosed yet.
Kazarian was one-half of the first-ever AEW World Tag Team Champions with Scorpio Sky, when they beat Lucha Brothers (Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fénix) in the finals of the AEW Tag Team Title Eliminator Tournament. They would then hold the titles for 83 days before losing them to AEW World Champion Adam Page and Kenny Omega. SCU were then forced to split up, when they tried to win the AEW World Tag Team Titles back from The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson).
SCU splitting up would then be the start of Frankie Kazarian’s singles run and since then he would be known as “The Elite Hunter.” Frankie Kazarian has since been featured on AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation on a regular basis and he has also competed on Dynamite from time to time, with his most recent match taking place on the January 19th episode, losing to Lance Archer in Singles action. Once the terms of Frankie Kazarian’s new contract with AEW has been revealed, it will be provided.
