Impact Wrestling has signed super heavyweight star Ace Romero.
The deal was made official this Saturday night at All Glory, a collaboration between Impact and several Midwest independent promotions, that saw Romero defeat Larry D in the show’s main event. Following the bout Scott D’Amore came to the ring and offered the big man a three-year contract.
Romero has been wrestling since 2013, hails from Orlando and was trained (at least in part) by NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan. He has been a mainstay for AAW in Chicago for the last two years, including a lengthy program with Maxwell Jacob Friedman that culminated in a Street Fight, as well as a bloody Dog Collar Match.
He has also worked several dates for MLW, battling Simon Gotch several times, and was just this year a surprise entrant in the 21-man Casino Battle Royale at AEW Double or Nothing. He was at one point on AEW’s radar, but obviously nothing materialized on that front.
