AEW’s inception came about at Double Or Nothing 2019 and since then, the company has done all it could to provide a product that true lovers of pro wrestling would enjoy. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. It seems Ric Flair isn’t a fan of one aspect of AEW.
There is no doubt that AEW has a very deep and diverse roster of talented in-ring performers from all over the world, incorporating various styles of pro wrestling. Khan even compared it to WCW’s 1997 roster. However, many fans are concerned that the company is signing more talents than they can handle,
Due to such a large roster of talented stars, there simply aren’t enough spots for all of them to be featured on AEW television every week. Due to this, wrestlers are rotated off of AEW television.
While speaking on Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED, Ric Flair criticized AEW for giving too much time off for their stars, especially after they lose a big match.
“Well, you can become a star for a short period of time but to me, especially if you’ve just lost a big match, you need to be back on it the next day.
Unfortunately, I think today some of the kids when they get to a match where it’s a big finale they want time off. I don’t agree with that either.
I think they need to be on TV, the stars that want to be the players. It’s the same ten people right now in WWE that it was five years ago. It’s good, that’s how you build your brand.”
Tony Khan is also excited about a future dream signing coming to AEW as well. Regardless, not every star can be featured on AEW television every single week and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
