Tony Khan To Be ‘More Discerning Than Ever’ With New AEW Signings

Tony Khan has indicated that AEW will be more thoughtful about potential acquisitions moving forward.

AEW has unveiled numerous high profile signings in 2021, including the likes of Malakai Black, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. During Dynamite: New Year’s Smash, it was revealed that Mercedes Martinez had signed with the company.

A criticism that many fans have had about AEW’s growing list of acquisitions is that the company already has a strong roster, with some seeing new signings as unnecessary.

In an interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Khan noted that AEW plans to continue partnerships with international promotions, including NJPW and Lucha Libre AAA.

Admitting that AEW will be more selective over new signings in the future, Khan said:

I do think I have to be more discerning than ever in talent acquisition because we have such a strong roster. I was aggressively expanding with the launch of Rampage. We made some big signings in the past including CM Punk. Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, Ruby Soho, Thunder Rosa, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish, Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black. Christian Cage and many others. We’ve also continued our partnerships with great international companies like New Japan Pro Wrestling and Lucha Libre AAA. We have a lot of great talent working, but it’s time for me to be more discerning than ever in terms of acquisitions.

In a separate interview, Khan discussed the possibility of Danhausen joining AEW.
