AEW Dynamite debuted back 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 lot of room for improvement.
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. The company continues to sign more and more talents that serve their purpose.
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 on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette criticized Tony Khan for booking AEW as if he is playing with action figures.
Tony Khan playing with his action figures, booking them in his basement like he was when he was a teenager and his father was only worth 750 million dollars instead of 3 billion or whatever. Now he can buy his own action figures and he has done it once again. Seriously, this could have been a transformative promotion in the wrestling industry, this could have set wrestling back on the path of being a competitive looking sport and given guys who needed an opportunity a place to go and given actual competition to Vince McMahon on the national television et cetera. And now that it’s not just a joke now there are some genuine talent there now that they have CM Punk, they’ve got MJF, they’ve got Bryan Danielson, they’ve got several top quality talents on that roster.”
Tony Khan already compared the current AEW roster to the 1997 WCW’s roster. He also previously 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.
