Former IWGP United States and Tag Team Champion Lance Archer has officially signed with All Elite Wrestling.

AEW issued a press release today announcing that Archer has signed a multi-year deal with the promotion. They also announced Archer's signing via Twitter: "Welcome to the team. #LanceArcher is #AllElite"

“I’ve been in the business for almost half of my life, but with AEW, I’m setting my sights on the best chapter of my career so far,” Archer said in the press release. “This company champions the creative, competitive and electrifying environment that I’ve been waiting for my whole career. No matter where I go -- no matter who steps in front of me -- I’m the one you should be afraid of at AEW.”

“Lance Archer is explosive, dynamic and unpredictable, making him perfect for AEW,” AEW president and CEO Tony Khan said. “He’s made his mark in every corner of the world. He’s brutal, colorful and will be a factor the minute he steps into the ring."

Sports Illustrated first reported last month that Archer was in "high-level talks" with AEW.

Archer wasn't among the wrestlers NJPW announced for this year's New Japan Cup tournament. He lost the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship to Jon Moxley at Wrestle Kingdom 14 night one and was also in action at New Year Dash and all five nights of NJPW's New Beginning USA tour.

Archer applied to trademark the name Lance Archer in January.

Tekkers-Gun, have Sabre and Taichi as co-leaders

Please, no. I want Zack to leave Suzuki-Gun so he can be interesting again. Preferably to leave NJPW entirely aside from the G1 and selected singles matches. I'd much rather see him working in ROH/RevPro/wXw/PROGRESS/EVOLVE on a regular basis than spend nine out of ten matches being wasted in pointless repetitive tag team matches that don't mean sh*t.

Nope. No interesting matches in NXT. In ROH we've got a booker who knows how to use him, plus matches with newly heel Gresham and Lethal, Dragon Lee, Alex Shelley, Bandido, Dalton Castle, Tracy Williams, Mark Haskins, Matt Taven, Jeff Cobb... he'd even make a very interesting test for a guy like Shane Taylor or Josh Woods.

PROGRESS and wXw would give us match-ups like David Starr, Cara Noir, Michael Oku/the OMJO, Veit Muller, Bobby Gunns, Ilja Dragunov, Marius Al-Ani. Imagine ZSJ vs. Paul Robinson in a Robbo's Rules match!
