AEW has a lot of things going on and they are signing new stars to deals. Some of those wrestlers are already under contract elsewhere, so there’s a tightrope walk that everyone needs to take every now and then.
Tony Khan just bought out Thunder Rosa’s contract from the NWA. This was a situation that they needed to deal with carefully, because contracts are sometimes difficult waters to navigate.
According to Fightful Select, Tony Khan is being very careful to not get caught tampering with contracts. It was also reported that Khan and NWA owner Billy Corgan have been working with each other directly.
Tony Khan in particular is very careful about not contract tampering, and wanted to play by the book on the situation. We’ve noted in the past that Tony Khan and Billy Corgan often work together directly.
Thunder Rosa wanted out of her NWA contract and made a few requests to get out. AEW finally stepped in and paid for her release and then they signed her in a deal. It was not noted how much AEW paid for Thunder Rosa’s contract.
