Tony Khan Says AEW Wants To Sign Familiar Wrestlers

Tony Khan spoke during his recent interview on Bleacher Report about how he sees the AEW roster shaping up. One of the things he sees happening is adding some more wrestlers to the roster.

However, he says he wants wrestlers AEW fans would know and recognize.

“I’d like to keep expanding. I think we found a great roster but I don’t think people should expect that you’ll never see more people debuting or that ‘this is it.’ I think we’re constantly evolving. We brought some of the great stars of wrestling in, we’ve introduced some of the great new stars in wrestling in addition to guys that were household names in wrestling and guys whose names have really grown. We’ve had a big impact made by MJF, Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Orange Cassidy and The Best Friends, and a lot of other people that have come in and done really well for us. What I’d like to do is take the best of what we have…then don’t be surprised to see more new people and new faces.

“Ricky Starks was a great signing. That was totally organic too. Ricky Starks was a person who had earned an opportunity and was somebody we were looking at to challenge for the TNT championship against Cody. That’s a good example, but I think there’s going to be some other guys, maybe people you’d even be more familiar with down the line.”

This sure seems like Khan and AEW might be interested in some of those guys WWE recently released. Who would you think would be a good fit for AEW? Let us know on twitter.
