AEW is signing up a roster full of stars and they could have plenty more people signed with the company before their television show debuts on TNT. It looks like October is the month that they will be bringing the action to television so they have a few months to get footage and arrange live tapings.
The company recently signed Luchasaurus and this was a very good get for them. Jim Cornette might not like how he dresses up like a dinosaur, but he is still incredibly over. Luchasaurus made it to the final four in the Casino Battle Royale during the Double Or Nothing Buy In kickoff show and he soon signed a real contract with The Elite.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Luchasaurus has told people that he can still work indie dates until AEW’s television show debuts in October. At that time he won’t be permitted to accept regular bookings once AEW becomes a weekly commitment.
It was said that this is probably the case with all new signees with AEW. Therefore, don’t expect too many of them to keep a regular indie wrestling schedule after AEW’s television debut on TNT in October.
