Roderick Strong is All Elite after making a surprise debut tonight on AEW Dynamite.
Strong appeared when Adam Cole went out to the ring to call out Chris Jericho. Jericho declined but he sent out the JAS. Orange Cassidy and Bandido ran out to help Cole but they were overtaken by JAS until Strong ran out to make the save. Cole and Strong hugged afterward.
Roderick Strong began his wrestling career in 2000 and worked for various independent promotions before signing with WWE in 2016. He was initially assigned to the NXT brand.
During his time in NXT, Strong was a member of the faction “The Undisputed Era” alongside Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, and Bobby Fish. Together, they dominated the NXT tag team division and helped elevate the brand’s status to new heights.
