Expect a huge AEW push for Jungle Boy once the wrestling world starts returning to something approaching normalcy.
This is the world of Dave Meltzer, who noted on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that the company has taken note of the Jurassic Express man's charisma and in-ring ability, setting him up for big things in the future.
Jungle Boy's push won't come immediately, however: it is believed that AEW will hold back on it until larger crowds return to their television shows, following on from recent reports that they don't want to burn big moments during this no-pop era. An understandable stance indeed.
Recent months have seen Jungle Boy wrestle for the AEW World Tag Team Titles, with him and Luchasaurus falling to Kenny Omega and Hangman Page on this week's Dynamite. He also had a breakout performance when he wrestled MJF in an excellent bout at May's Double Or Nothing pay-per-view.
It remains to be seen when AEW will be able to invite more fans to their shows, though this week saw them bring around 150 people into Daily's Place. Social distancing was observing, masks were compulsory, and temperatures were checked as the attendees arrived.
