All Elite Wrestling has hired former Senior Director of Live Event Marketing of WWE Rafael Morffi to handle the live event aspect of the company. Morffi, who was with the New York Mets before his WWE run and worked for the New York Cosmos soccer team after departing WWE, has also worked with Impact Wrestling, MLW, House of Hardcore, Brian Knobbs' Legends of Wrestling events and Jim Ross, among others, via his Signature Move Productions Company. He's been well liked and respect within the pro wrestling world for many years.
Morffi was at "Double or Nothing" last month and will be an important part of the AEW operations going forward. It's a big hire for the company.
I was starting to hope he would go to New Japan full time, not necessarily AEW, since he was doing so well there whenever he shows up.
NJPW is really conservative and slow when it comes to signing Jr. talent. So for USA / Canada wrestlers that want to be at NJPW, sgning with RoH is the best choice. NJPW sometimes even asks RoH to hire a wrestler to "test" him. One of the reasons NJPW likes its partnership with RoH so much, they are in an advantageous position.
It might be because he is one of the trainers there.
Here's a nice documentary about Jungle Boy from recently:
I wonder if Page will turn on the Elite? They've kinda been taking him for granted. Might be worth a try if they don't want to give the title to Jericho. Also works for his battle with Moxley since he's too popular to be a heel.
Ronda (another former UFC fighter) is still abit green in a wrestling ring but shes also pretty damn good.
