There isn’t room for everyone. AEW has come a long way in its few years of existence and a lot of that is due to its roster. The company has put together an incredible mixture of veterans, current stars and up and comers, which has allowed for quite the successful setup. However, as AEW continues to bring in more and more wrestlers, there are only so many places for all of them and that seems to be the case again.

During a recent interview with TV Insider, AEW President Tony Khan spoke about the company’s contract situations. Khan said that he tried to make sure to keep as many wrestlers under contract during the Coronavirus pandemic as he could for the sake of keeping them employed. However, now that there are several new wrestlers coming in to AEW and so many contracts expiring, Khan will not be able to keep everyone. Khan said he is making his decisions based on ability, fan response, or a combination of both.

Opinion: This doesn’t come off as the biggest surprise and it isn’t a bad thing. These wrestlers signed agreements for a certain amount of time and now that time is up. Both sides have fulfilled their obligations and it would probably be better for some of them to move on. That is hardly the worst thing to hear and maybe now things can start to change around in a better direction.
