All Elite Wrestling signed Kip Sabian to work for it before the AEW Double or Nothing PPV event. Kip participated in AEW’s first ever singles match which took place right after the Casino Battle Royale. He wrestled Sammy Guevara and beat him.
Getting signed by All Elite Wrestling was his big break. He got noticed by the company after Christopher Daniels spoke about him. Daniels saw his work and was impressed. He spoke about his signing with AEW with Chris Van Vliet.
"He said in an interview or to a fan in Vegas about how he put in a word for me. Daniels was really instrumental in everything that happened to me over the last few years," stated Sabian. "Prior to this I shared a long car journey with him and he was a great guy and gave me lots of advice, tips, pointers.
That night it was me versus Chris Ridgeway who is one of my best friends. It was me and him in the main event and we were told we could do whatever we want, you've got half an hour, have a great time. So we went out there and it is still one of my favorite matches to this day, it was just so much fun.
AEW has a number of poplar indie wrestlers. They also have some famous former WWE wrestlers and may end up beating the WWE one day.
