WWE has been ruthless as far as releasing their talents is concerned. The company has been releasing talents and members of staff since April of last year and they show no signs of stopping anytime soon. It seems Tony Khan wants to make the most out of the opportunities WWE presents to him.
Back in June, WWE held yet another round of cuts from the company and it included several big names. Among them include the likes of Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. Unfortunately, WWE released several Superstars again recently. This included the likes of Nia Jax, Karrion Kross, Keith Lee, Mia Yim and more.
AEW has all the momentum in the world right now thanks to the debuts of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole to their roster. This has ensured that the roster is one of the most stacked in all of pro wrestling.
While speaking to Wade Keller of PWTorch, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about spacing out the debus of major stars in AEW. Khan then referenced WWE constantly releasing their talents. Khan said that there will never be a shortage of debuts in AEW at the rate WWE release their talents.
“At the rate they [WWE] are letting big stars go and firing people, I will not have a shortage of people to debut in the months ahead.”
Tony Khan also recently stated that there are a couple of WWE releases that he wants to snatch up for AEW. On top of that, there are also a lot of plans for long-term storylines in AEW. We will have to wait and see which former WWE Superstar AEW will sign next.
