Tony Khan Says AEW Could Lose Out On Talent Now That WWE Has Changed

During an interview with SportsGrid, Tony Khan discussed wrestling free agency and how AEW could lose out on talent that seemed a sure thing for the promotion at one point.

Khan did state that the changes in WWE in recent weeks was a good thing for professional wrestling.

“I think that’s always been a concern, but now probably more so than ever, I imagine great wrestlers are going to be in demand,” Khan said. “And again, I think this is probably going to be good for the wrestling fans because that’s one of the most exciting things about pro wrestling: free agency. It’s one of those things that was really missing from the sport for almost two decades before AEW came in, because there was not a legitimate competitor in the free agent market, and now there is. I think it’s going to be some exciting times ahead, hopefully for many years to come.”

“One of the worst things that happened, I think, in American sports in my lifetime was when WCW closed down. And there should always be another national wrestling company.”
