Former PWG Champion and Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion Chris Hero is reportedly scheduled to be backstage at Saturday’s AEW Collision in Chicago, according to Fightful.
The report stated Hero will be working with AEW on a trial basis to join the company in a backstage role.
In March, the 43-year-old was announced as the new matchmaker for West Coast Pro Wrestling out of California. He also hosts an interview series for Highspots.
After 22 years in the ring, Hero hasn’t wrestled since a set of early March 2020 WWE NXT UK TV tapings. He spent several years in NXT and NXT UK as Kassius Ohno, dating back to 2012. He left in 2013 and returned in 2017 before his final release in March 2020.
Hero has a history with many on both the AEW and ROH rosters including longtime tag team partner Claudio Castagnoli, Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, Mark Briscoe, and others.
