His opinion matters. The wrestling world has changed since the rise of AEW and there is nothing to suggest that those changes are going to stop anytime soon. The company has offered the wrestling world a new place to go and that is certainly a good thing. Above all else, it means that leaving WWE is not the end of a wrestler’s mainstream career, which seems to be the case again.
In a new interview with Wade Keller of Pro Wrestling Torch, AEW President Tony Khan spoke about the recent WWE releases. Khan talked about how sad it was to see so many wrestlers being let go from a company and losing their jobs. He also mentioned that in every wave of WWE releases, there are always a few that he is interested in bringing in to AEW. This is the case again with the latest batch of releases, though Khan did not say who he was interested in. Assuming the released wrestlers do not attempt to get out of their no compete clauses, they will be allowed to appear in AEW in 30 or 90 days, depending on the clause.
I could see Khan wanting a variety of the recent releases. Check out some of the names he might want:
Opinion: This isn’t exactly the biggest surprise and one of the most entertaining things to do is try and figure out who all Khan might bring in to AEW. The fact that there is another top level place to go is the kind of thing that we have not been seeing for a very long time now and it’s great to have it back. Hopefully we get to see something exciting in the future, and that seems like it will be taking place in a few months.
