Ho Ho Lun Debuts on AEW Dark!
AEW Dark continues to be the place where former WWE cruiserweights debut for the company, and tonight is no exception as WWE Cruiserweight Classic participant Ho Ho Lun appears in one-on-one action against Sammy Guevara!
Lun has been wrestling for over a decade, starting his career in China before branching out to the Asian independent scene, and then Europe, before moving on to Japan. In 2016 he took part in WWE’s Cruiserweight Classic, making it to the second round before eventually being eliminated by Noam Dar. In 2017 Lun was granted his release by WWE, and he’s been primarily associated with Dragon Gate in Japan since then.
Lun’s appearance on Dark follows the debut of Jake Atlas last night on Elevation. Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese also signed with AEW recently, while former 205 Live roster members Anthony Greene and Curt Stallion have also appeared on Dark in recent months.
