He has been working his way through the WWE Developmental system learning how to be a pro wrestler, and also during that time, he was the host of the WWE Hidden Treasure Show on A&E. But just last week AJ Francis got his big break when he was drafted to WWE Smackdown which airs on FOX every Friday night at 8 pm. Smackdown is the most-watched professional wrestling show in the world and the biggest platform for a professional wrestler to be on.
Congratulations to AJ on this big opportunity.
