Apr 15, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

AEW continues to grow, and this time they’ve added Japanese wrestling stalwart CIMA to the roster.

The signing was announced on the most recent edition of Being The Elite. Matt Jackson explained, “We’ve been at home working diligently trying to put together our team and one thing I think we’ve realized is that we wanna be working with people who we love, people we trust and people who have helped us along the way.”

“In particular someone I’m talking about right now is someone we met in 2007. He watched us wrestle at Battle of Los Angeles for PWG and he was so impressed that he actually booked us on a tour for Dragon Gate,” Nick Jackson added. “It was our very first big break in wrestling.”

The Bucks then confirmed that the person they were talking about was indie veteran CIMA.

“We’ve officially signed CIMA to a full time contract,” Nick said. “CIMA is All Elite.”

CIMA is scheduled team up with two members of the Oriental Wrestling Entertainment roster in a six-man tag match against SoCal Uncensored at Double Or Nothing next month.
