In a recent whirlwind of exhilarating announcements, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) President, Tony Khan, keeps fans on the edge of their seats, ensuring the professional wrestling world remains abuzz. Today, let's delve into the latest updates that are not only shaking the foundations of AEW but promise to render upcoming matches unmissable.
On the forefront of this thrilling news, Willie Mack, a former WWE superstar, is set to make a monumental return to AEW. Mack, who showcased his prowess in a match against Serpentico on AEW Dark last March 24, is now poised to step into the ring with the formidable Samoa Joe for the Ring of Honor (ROH) World TV Title.
Tony Khan, in his signature enthusiastic style, utilized Twitter to announce Mack’s return, igniting a maelstrom of excitement among fans and colleagues alike. He tweeted: "This Saturday, 10/14 Toledo, Ohio Saturday Night #AEWCollision On @TNTdrama, 8pm ET/7pm CT ROH World Television Title @SamoaJoe vs @Willie_Mack.

Adding another layer of excitement to the AEW scene, Tony Khan dropped yet another bombshell, announcing the signing and upcoming debut of Mistico (formerly known as Sin Cara in WWE) next week on Rampage. The debut isn't just a typical one, as Mistico is slated to face his well-established rival from Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), Rocky Romero, a match being billed as a quest for Mexico's pound-for-pound crown and a grudge match between two iconic figures in the wrestling world.
