Lee Moriarty is now All Elite.

After wrestling on tonight's AEW Dark: Elevation tapings in Cincinnati, Moriarty was offered an AEW contract by Tony Khan in front of the live audience. Moriarty accepted the offer.

Moriarty faced Daniel Garcia on the Dark: Elevation tapings.

Moriarty made his AEW debut last month, facing Dante Martin on an episode of AEW Dark. Moriarty also was in action against Joey Janela on Dark this Tuesday.

At this Sunday's ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view, Moriarty will team with John Walters & LSG against Violence Unlimited's Homicide, Chris Dickinson & Tony Deppen. It will be the first time Moriarty has wrestled for ROH. The match has been hyped as one technical wrestler from the past (Walters), one from the present (LSG), and one who is considered part of the future (Moriarty) facing Violence Unlimited.

Moriarty also made his MLW debut at July's Battle Riot tapings. He took part in the 40-man Battle Riot match and also faced Calvin Tankman.

Moriarty is a former IWTV Independent Wrestling World Champion.

So how long until people start calling this for what it really is? You know, stockpiling talent.

You can already see it with Page and some fans having second thoughts about him winning the belt from Omega to blow off this """epic""" storyline, because he'll be secondary to whatever Cole/Danielson/Punk (and supposedly Wyatt + rumors on Owens/Zayn already) are doing. Let's not even talk about the sea of midcarders who are struggling to get and do anything relevant on TV, and you are starting to hear some grumbling from a few (Swole bitched on some Twitter conference thing and compared Khan to the kid from Toy Story getting a shiny new toy every week (and also made it about race, because THAT is why she's not on TV, not because she's awful) while Melissa Santos went to bat for her husband as well and ranted about his treatment).

It doesn't matter how he wants to do it, but Khan needs to trim the fat (especially if more signings are planned) or this will only get worse. You could easily cut 20 people from the current roster and very few would even notice.
