Prince Nana reveals how he signed to AEW: I got a text out of nowhere

The “AEW Unrestricted” podcast was the perfect opportunity for Prince Nana to reveal how he got signed to AEW. Although he was somewhat disappointed and was looking for a new chance, he did not give up on his goals.

One of my producers, we were having a business meeting that morning going over plans for the rest of the year and moving on. We were doing it early. It was August. I had just gotten back from Los Angeles doing some Independent dates out there.

I don’t want to say that I was thinking to myself, ‘Is it time for me to hang it up?’ I don’t want to say that, but I was contemplating more like, ‘What more can I do to give back as much as I can to the wrestling business without seeming selfish’ Being on TV is an opportunity.

It’s not something that everybody gets. So I wanted to make sure I gave back in some kind of way. But anyway, we were sitting down having our discussion. It was probably 1:30 or two o’clock in the afternoon. Yes, I’ve been to the AEW shows in the past because I have a ton of friends who are supportive of me and they know that I support the product, and boom, I got a text out of nowhere from one of the executive producers at AEW.

He was like, ‘Hey, listen. Are you local? Are you in the area? We had a little discussion and next thing you know, boom”. - he said, as quoted by

Tony Khan

Things turned out for the best for him, and that was also the moment when he met Tony Khan.

“You know Prince Nana has a lot of money, so money is not an issue, So Prince Nana, boom, was in Boston, Massachusetts. We got the Tully Blanchard situation out of the way. You know, he’s a great legend that I respect and there’s nobody’s shoes that I would like to fill more than Tully Blanchard.

Everything that I did in the wrestling business came together in one day. I always remember that day and I’ll always remember all the people involved. I met Tony Khan that day. I met him before, but I met him again that day, and what a great meeting we had”.
