An assessment of Lance Archer’s run in AEW by Archer himself.

Dating back to early 2020, Lance Archer has been signed to All Elite Wrestling. Archer’s accolades within the company includes winning a men’s Casino Battle Royal in addition to capturing the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship on a Fyter Fest edition of Dynamite. 

While appearing on the Hitting The Turnbuckle Podcast, Archer assessed his overall run in AEW and feels it’s been ‘steady.’ 

I would say that my time (in AEW) has been pretty steady. I think everybody’s wrestling career and time in companies and the business as a whole has its ups and downs, its ebbs and flows. Mine certainly has that, but I think it has been pretty darn steady and then I think for the future, I’m always aspiring for the top, for the biggest spot. A lot of times, people go, ‘Who is your favorite person to want to work with? Who’s your dream match? Who’s your dream opponent?’ Things like that and my answer almost always is, ‘Who’s the champion right now?’ Right now, it’s Swerve (Strickland). So Swerve is my dream match, my dream opponent and with Forbidden Door coming up which you mentioned before, it’s a good combination show. It’s something that kind of opened the door for professional wrestling and some of the stuff you’re seeing around wrestling right now with different companies working together and whatnot and the fact that we’ve been working with New Japan, a company that I worked for nine years with and the IWGP Championship is going to be, I think, defended by (Jon) Moxley against (Tetsuya) Naito but, that’s another championship that I would love to obtain one time in my career. So my objective is always to be on top with whichever company I’m working with and the fact that AEW is working with New Japan on such a consistent basis, like I said, either the AEW World Championship or the IWGP Championship, one of those two, that’s always where I aspire to go and be.

On both ROH and AEW programming, Archer is paired with The Righteous (Vincent & Dutch). The trio took on Hiroshi Tanahashi, Claudio Castagnoli and Daniel Garcia on Collison heading into Double or Nothing.
