• Tony Khan Reacts To WWE Releasing 18 Wrestlers Last Week
WWE released 18 wrestlers last week, including stars like Keith Lee, Karrion Kross and Nia Jax.
During an interview with PWTorch, AEW President Tony Khan revealed that he’s interested in hiring some of the recently released WWE stars.
Here’s what he said:
“Every time they cut 20 people, let’s just say, it’s terrible because every time someone loses a job, it’s affecting them and the people around them. Some of these people might have wanted to leave, but in general, most probably did not. It’s terrible when anyone loses their work and I feel for them. Each and everyone counts.
I’m going to take a ballpark number, and I’m not trying to make light of everything, but everyone counts and this probably not the exact amount, but every time they let, lets say in the ballpark of 20 people go, I think there have been in general one, two or three people in there that I am interested in and snatch up. They keep doing these mass layoffs and each time, I find a few people and the company gets a little stronger and stronger.
I do see a few in this wave. I don’t want to say who or when I would be interested in them, but there are a few interesting people they let go and same goes with the last wave and the wave before that and before that. Each wave, there are a few interesting ones and this was no exception.
At the rate they are letting big stars go and firing people, I will not have a shortage of people to debut in the months ahead.”
