Backstage News On Bobby Fish’s All Elite Wrestling Status

This past August 6th, Bobby Fish was released by the WWE reportedly due to budget cuts and since then he has been taking independent bookings in the Pennsylvania area and he even made an appearance on an episode of MLW’s recent Fightland tapings. Bobby Fish took to his Twitter account shortly after Sammy Guevara won the TNT Championship and issued a challenge to be the first opponent of Guevara to defend his title against, which Sammy Guevara accepted during the first commercial break of last Wednesday’s Rhodes To The Top.

Fish made his AEW debut during last night’s 2nd Anniversary episode of Dynamite, but came up short as Sammy Guevara successfully retain his TNT Title. This past weekend, a number of fans noticed that the TNT Title Match graphic of Sammy Guevara and Bobby Fish saw an AEW logo on the t-shirt of Fish, which would lead to fans speculating that he may have already signed a full-time deal with the promotion as AEW will likely not give the green light to sell or mass produce Bobby Fish’s t-shirt with their logo on it just for a one-off match.

According to Fightful Select, people who spoke with Fish at MLW’s recent taping noted that he claimed he has not yet signed with All Elite Wrestling as of that point. It is interesting to note that Stars such as Adam Cole and CM Punk didn’t actually sign their AEW contracts until they got to the building on the night of their debuts, so it is possible that Fish will only be signing his AEW contract after he makes his debut with the company. Typically, AEW publicly announces via press release or on social media when a wrestler signs a full-time deal with the company, so that could be made after Bobby Fish makes his AEW debut.
