WWE released another round of Superstars this week. Keith Lee, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Ember Moon, and more lost their jobs, but AEW is always an option. Tony Khan is obviously paying attention as well.

AEW can’t sign everyone that WWE lets go, but they have picked up a lot of talent that was impossible to pass up. Bobby Fish, Tony Nese, and more have recently joined the AEW roster and more could be coming in about 90 days.

PWTorch recently spoke to Tony Khan about the recent wave of WWE releases. He then admitted that he is usually only interested in snatching up about three Superstars from each crop of firings.

“Every time they cut 20 people, let’s just say, it’s terrible because every time someone loses a job, it’s affecting them and the people around them. Some of these people might have wanted to leave, but in general, most probably did not. It’s terrible when anyone loses their work and I feel for them. Each and everyone counts.


“I’m going to take a ballpark number, and I’m not trying to make light of everything, but everyone counts and this probably not the exact amount, but every time they let, lets say in the ballpark of 20 people go, I think there have been in general one, two or three people in there that I am interested in and snatch up. They keep doing these mass layoffs and each time, I find a few people and the company gets a little stronger and stronger.

“I do see a few in this wave. I don’t want to say who or when I would be interested in them, but there are a few interesting people they let go and same goes with the last wave and the wave before that and before that. Each wave, there are a few interesting ones and this was no exception.”

WWE almost released ten additional Superstars this week. That would have made this week a lot worse. We’ll have to see what WWE’s end game is, because it seems that they could be gearing up for a sale. If anything, Tony Khan will have his eye on the situation, and a few of these recent WWE releases could find their way to AEW.
