Update On Lee Johnson’s AEW Contract


Recently, on the AEW Unrestricted Podcast, Tony Schiavone and Aubrey Edwards interviewed the leader of The Factory – QT Marshall. In this interview, Marshall would discuss his time as Cody Rhodes’ assistant, his role at The Nightmare Factory, and his bowling shirts. However, in this interview, Marshall would disclose contractual information involving AEW wrestler Lee Johnson.

Marshall would state:

“He texted me when Lee Johnson had his first match.  He said, ‘Is Lee your guy?’  I said, ‘He is.’  He said, ‘Wow, I think you have something really special with this kid.  Keep doing whatever you’re doing with him.’  Then, literally three months later, he signs like, and I don’t want to go into his business, but I think a six-year contract.”

In regard to Marshall’s reaction to Johnson’s contract, he stated:

“I’m like, wait a minute.  That’s my student.  I don’t even have a three-year contract.  He’s someone I’m very proud of as well.  There’s a whole bunch that I’m proud of, but also, I love bringing them to TV, and letting them have the opportunity to work Dark or Elevation, or whatever it is, just so they can see how real it is.”

We here at eWrestling News are very excited for Johnson’s future in All Elite Wrestling. Stay tuned for more contractual updates.
