Tony Khan has been a busy man since founding AEW in 2019. The promoter has brought in a ton of big names since opening up shop. CM Punk, Jon Moxley, Malakai Black, and Bryan Danielson are among many massive stars who have become All Elite. TK says he’s not finished yet.
Tony Khan appeared on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio. There, he talked about his plans for future talent acquisitions. Khan emphasized that there will be big names coming to AEW in the near future.
Khan also spoke about the possibility for more cross-promotion with other rival wrestling organizations. The AEW leader noted that the “forbidden door” will be opening again very soon.
“Just in the last several weeks, we’ve made some big ones and I plan to make some more big signings. Not in the long-term future, I mean in the short-term future. I’ll still be active in the free agent market and the forbidden door shall be opening again very soon. I guarantee you we’ll be making news out of tonight’s show and then we’ll have some big news next week too.
I have to say, I really love listening to the wrestling fans. I love wrestling myself and I’m a fan. I believe the fans give us the direction and it’s up to us to give great shows that the people want to see. I don’t want it to be handed down on high. For me, anytime we can sign somebody that’s going to make the fans excited and come in here and give the fans big matches that they are excited to watch and bring new fans to AEW, it’s a great opportunity for us. I will continue to explore the free agent market and the forbidden door will be opening again soon.”
Tony’s words will surely cause a great deal of hype leading up to next week’s AEW Dynamite. There are a boatload of big name free agents looking for new homes. At least some of them will be finding their way to All Elite Wrestling.
