AEW Announces Luchasaurus Has Joined The Roster.

All Elite Wrestling announced on Twitter tonight that Luchasaurus has joined the roster.

Luchasaurus worked the Casino Battle Royale on the AEW Double Or Nothing “Buy In” pre-show this past Saturday night. He picked up 4 eliminations before being eliminated by the winner, “Hangman” Adam Page.

Real name Austin Matelson, Luchasaurus was previously signed to a WWE developmental deal under the name Judas Devlin in 2012. He worked for Florida Championship Wrestling, which would become WWE NXT, but was released in 2014 after suffering a severe spinal injury. He’s also wrestled for ROH and Lucha Underground, and was a house-guest on season 17 of Big Brother in 2015, where he came in 5th.

On a related note, Luchasaurus was asked on Twitter about his look and gimmick, and what it means. He replied, “I am a man wearing a mask. It’s an ironic commentary on rebellion. I’m an absurd character that represents something extinct in order to show the wrestling world that the preconceived idea of how a big man is suppose to wrestle is also extinct.”
