AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. It seems Eddie Kingston is a fan of AEW’s stacked roster.
AEW has all the momentum in the world right now thanks to the debuts of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole. Even recently the likes of Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly have signed with the company.
However, many fans are also concerned over the fact that AEW keeps on signing more and more talent and that leads them to believe the roster will be bloated similar to what WWE was before releasing so many talents.
While speaking with TalkSport, Eddie Kingston was asked if AEW has too many talents right now. Kingston made it clear that the company’s loaded roster is not a negative thing at all.
”No, because it makes everybody else step up. And if you don’t step up, you get left behind and that’s your fault. That’s not Punk’s fault. That’s not Bryan’s fault. That not whoever comes in fault.
When Bryan signed, when Punk signed and when Adam Cole signed I said ‘Alright, let’s go. Let’s see what you got.’ Because I know what I got. I know what I have to improve on. Let’s see what you got. I like it. I have a big chip on my shoulder.”
Tony Khan already compared the current AEW roster to the 1997 WCW’s roster. He also recently boasted that AEW made the pro wrestling business hotter. We will have to wait and see how many talents Tony Khan will keep on signing to AEW in the coming months.
