An argument might be made in AEW that we have too many talents.
We got a lot of talent … You don’t want to start cutting the roster because that’s not my job, I could certainly handle it if it were. But, we have a lot of people coming through. Tony Khan is always looking to give guys opportunities, you never know what you’ll find.”
