That’s a lot of people. AEW is one of the most unique wrestling companies in recent memory. They haven’t even been around for six months yet but it feels like they’ve become a part of the wrestling landscape already. With their TV show debuting in less than two months, it’s going to be time to really crank up the competition. As it turns out, they still have some cards left to play.
Cody was recently in a discussion with a fan on Twitter, who did not seem happy with the AEW roster, saying that it needed some bigger wrestlers. In response, Cody said that the company has only shown about 40% of its roster so far. AEW has currently run three shows, with their fourth coming up on August 31 with All Out. There is no word on which major wrestlers AEW has signed, though they may be surprises for later dates.
We’ve revealed about 40% of the roster. Sometimes it’s better to let the painter paint and then judge the picture.

You can see a lot of them here. Check out the Double Or Nothing Pre-Show, featuring the Casino Battle Royal:
Opinion: That’s a lot of people to have left to reveal, but at the same time it’s an encouraging sign. You can only run the same people so many times when you’re going two hours a week so having a deep roster is important. With that many more people available, there is a chance of having fresh matches for a long time. That was a concern coming into the TNT show but maybe they have it under control.
Who do you want to see working for AEW? Who will their next big surprise be? Let us know in the comments below.
