AEW made another major splash today when they announced via their social media platforms that they had signed independent wrestler Will Hobbs.
Hobbs, who got his start in the independents, spent the better part of 2019 and 2020 wrestling for All Pro Wrestling (APW) in California recently has become a staple of AEW Dark, which you can watch weekly on Tuesday nights via AEW’s YouTube channel. He’s already had some matches against AEW mainstays competing in singles matches against Shawn Spears, Scorpio Sky, Orange Cassidy, and others. Will Hobbs even had a one on one match with with Darby Allin on AEW Dynamite back in August and competed on PPV for the company as an entrant in The Casino Battle Royale.
Will Hobbs was rated #25 on The Lariat Pro Wrestling Top 50 Independent Wrestlers North America list last month and should add to their already deep roster of Big Men. Potential matchups with Lance Archer, Wardlow, and Brian Cage seem inevitable for the ultra talented Will Hobbs.
