AEW is said to have once again expanded its ever-growing roster. According to’s Cassidy Haynes, Tony Khan has bolstered his ranks with the addition of former Ring Of Honor star Brody King… who happens to be Malakai Black’s tag team partner in the independent PWG promotion.

In case you missed it, a thumbnail featuring Malakai Black aired during this week’s Winter Is Coming edition of AEW Dynamite announced the arrival of a new member of House Of Black. Could Black’s new follower be Brody King, the man he currently shares in the PWG Tag Team Championship with?


Brody King is a 34-year-old professional wrestler who cut his teeth on the independent Southern California scene while training at the prestigious Santinos Bros Academy in Los Angeles. Something of a late bloomer, King struggled in his very first game in 2015, but his rise to independent stardom was swift. In 2018, he made his Ring Of Honor as a member of the Villain Enterprises of the Marty Scurll Heel faction.

The following year, King and his Villain Enterprises PCO teammate won the ROH World Tag Team Championship by defeating The Briscoes (Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe) at the ROH 17th Anniversary. The following evening, King became a two-time champion when he and PCO teamed up with Scurll to claim the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team title from The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan & Vinny Marseglia).

Earlier this year, King reunited with his old friend Malakai Black when Black made his shocking return to PWG after a five-year absence from the promotion’s Mystery Vortex VII event. Known collectively as The Kings Of The Black Throne, Brody King and Malakai Black defeated Black Taurus & Demonic Flamita PWG Threemendous VI to claim the vacant PWG World Tag Team Championship.

Will Brody and Malakai rekindle their unnatural alliance on AEW programming? Here’s hoping.
