Kaun has signed with All Elite Wrestling, joining tag team partner Toa Liona on the Ring Of Honor roster, reports Fightful Select.

News that Kaun had secured an AEW contract broke within an hour of Liona's claims that he had signed with Tony Khan's promotion started doing the rounds. The duo came together as Gates of Agony at ROH's comeback show, Supercard Of Honor 2022, on 1 April, operating as part of the new Tully Blanchard Enterprises stable alongside Brian Cage.

Per Fightful, Kaun's AEW contract was put together at the beginning of February.


Introduced by Blanchard during Supercard's Zero Hour pre-show, Gates Of Agony destroyed Cheeseburger and Eli Isom in their first match as a tandem. Later, they joined fellow new Blanchard signing Cage as the stable formally came together on the main card.

Kaun has worked several AEW tapings in the past, most notably this January, when he wrestled Adam Cole for an episode of Dark. The up-and-comer had been working for ROH regularly at the time Tony Khan's buyout of the cult promotion was announced in March 2022, working primarily as part of the Shane Taylor Promotions faction.
