Serpentico has signed with All Elite Wrestling.
Making the announcement on Inside the Ropes, Serpentico stated that his contract is to be a full-time performer and was signed a few months ago. Serpentico, real name Jon Cruz, has been appearing on episodes of AEW Dark since March.
“SNAKEMAN is ALL ELITE! I’ve been under a deal for a few months now. This is going to sound like I’m playing favourites because I work for the company now but I’m beyond grateful to work for a company that cares so much for the people that work for them. Before signing I was already made to feel at home.
“Everyone has been very welcoming and you can practically go to anyone for advice/pointers/critiques and they all have been so helpful. It never comes from a negative place. They really want the company to grow and I’m glad to be part of the team.”
Serpentico recently wrestled in the main event of Dynamite teaming with Luther against Chris Jericho and Jake Hager, which was a celebration of Jericho’s 30 years in wrestling.
