Tully Blanchard has joined AEW as an “exclusive advisor” to Shawn Spears.
A press release was sent out today confirming that Blanchard has entered a “multi-show agreement” with AEW.
The press release was mostly in storyline. AEW’s Tony Khan was quoted as saying “Shawn Spears’ new advisor Tully Blanchard is a legendary retired wrestler and a canny tactician known worldwide for his vicious streak and penchant for chicanery. Given the challenge that Shawn has issued to Cody for a match at ALL OUT as well as the long, bitter history between Tully and the Rhodes family, plus Shawn’s recent behavior in AEW, it appears that Tully Blanchard has a great deal of influence over Shawn’s intents and actions. This indicates that going forward Shawn Spears will be one of the most feared and unpredictable wrestlers in AEW.”
Blanchard appeared at the end of the Road to All Out video that premiered last night. He interrupted a discussion between Jim Ross and Spears and told Ross that the discussion was over.
