AEW commentator and producer Tony Schiavone introduced Lethal as a member of the promotion just prior to the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view on Saturday in Minneapolis' Target Center.

The 36-year-old Lethal has been wrestling for 20 years, and now he's looking to make a big impact on the AEW stage.

He'll get that opportunity after answering TNT champion Sammy Guevara's open challenge for his belt.

Guevara, who was on the winning side of a five-on-five Minneapolis Street Fight before Lethal's debut, accepted the challenger's bid for a match on AEW Dynamite this Wednesday.
