Lance Archer bet on himself when he signed with AEW and hasn’t looked back since. Lance talks about his journey to AEW, his first-time meeting Tony Khan, the backyard vignettes he filmed at Darby Allin’s house with Jake “The Snake” Roberts that first introduced him to AEW fans, his in-ring debut at the Nightmare Factory during the pandemic lockdown, and his matches against Marko Stunt, Rey Fenix and Miro.
Lance also reveals the philosophy behind the color his signature braid, the origins of the Murderhawk Monster, his Namahage status in Japan, why he wrestled under a mask for a short time early in his career, and who he’d love to form a faction with at AEW. Plus, Lance shares the story of the peanut butter challenge, the time he had breakfast with Stan Hansen, and a few choice words for AEW’s “Men of the Year.”

Lance on his AEW in-ring debut versus Marko Stunt:
“He’s a very durable young man to say the least. I tossed him from every corner that I could possibly do in every way I could.”
Lance on “Men of the Year,” Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky:
“I’ll call them ‘Men of the Hour’ because once we’re done with them, that hour is up.”
