AEW star Luther was the most recent guest on the Thank You For Being A Friend podcast with host Justin Roberts. The Japanese deathmatch legend revealed that despite a friendship with Chris Jericho, he had to send in multiple audition tapes before officially signing with AEW.
Chris had called and said they needed an audition tape, they were looking for something. I sent in some audition tapes of some interviews and, actually, everyone is like ‘uh, you got handed stuff’ or you got this, or that. No. I sent in like three audition tapes. Had to go do a screen test. Lots of hoops. Lots of trying and I’m still there kicking it!
