Former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone is reportedly “locked into a deal” with All Elite Wrestling.
PWInsider reports Schiavone will be heading to AEW after agreeing to the terms of a contract last week. WWE was reportedly pursuing Tony as well, but the 61-year-old podcast host ultimately ended up with upstart promotion All Elite Wrestling instead.
Tony recently appeared on an episode of “Road to” in AEW’s “Control Center.”
For those unaware, Schiavone also returned to MLW this month following an absence from the promotion. We’re told he will once again be a full-time presence on the show going forward.
It’s unclear at this time if Tony will be replacing someone on AEW’s current commentary team.
