In the world of professional wrestling, alliances form the backbone of any gripping narrative. One such alliance, the Mogul Embassy, is fast rising as a dominant faction in AEW. With standout performers such as Swerve Strickland, Brian Cage, and the formidable duo known as the Gates of Agony, it's no wonder they've quickly seized the spotlight.
However, a large part of their allure and success is owed to their enigmatic manager, Prince Nana. Fans can rejoice as latest reports suggest that Nana's influence in AEW will persist.
Nana's AEW Commitment
Inside sources have relayed to Fightful Select that Prince Nana has officially penned a multi-year contract with AEW, solidifying his presence in the promotion.
Known for his exemplary work, he has garnered considerable admiration within AEW's corridors. Nana isn't new to the world of wrestling. Since 2002, he's been a central figure in Ring of Honor (ROH). Notably, in 2004, he established the iconic 'The Embassy' faction.
He remained intermittently associated with ROH, leading up to its acquisition in 2022 by business magnate Tony Khan. An unforgettable moment was witnessed at Death Before Dishonor that same year when news broke that Nana had taken over Tully Blanchard's faction after the latter's dramatic exit.
Under Nana's strategic guidance, Jonathan Gresham faced off against Claudio Castagnoli, eventually relinquishing his world title. Furthermore, Nana masterminded Brian Cage and the Gates of Agony in their triumph over Dalton Castle and The Boys, capturing the ROH Six-Man titles.
Subsequent events saw The Embassy and Swerve's Mogul Affiliates merge, giving birth to the now-celebrated Mogul Embassy. Nana's role evolved further, as he stepped in to manage Strickland. Just this past week on "AEW Dynamite", fans were treated to a display of Nana's tactical prowess as he escorted Strickland to the ring, setting up an explosive confrontation with "Hangman" Adam Page.
As the storylines thicken and battles intensify, Prince Nana's secured tenure ensures that the Mogul Embassy's influence in AEW is just beginning. Wrestling enthusiasts should keep a keen eye on this dynamic group.
