AEW has made a number of hires since the company’s inception at the beginning of the year and they have signed all kinds of stars to the promotion.
During a recent interview with SportsKeeda.com, one of the company’s biggest signing till date, Chris Jericho broke down their hiring process.
The former World Champion claimed that not everyone who is unhappy with their booking in WWE is automatically guaranteed a job in their promotion and they look at every talent on an individual basis:
It’s different. We’re not doing it that way where anyone who doesn’t like what they’re doing in WWE is automatically guaranteed a job in AEW. We will look at every talent on an individual basis. There’s some guys we’d love to have in WWE, and there’s some guys we probably wouldn’t take. Obviously, we haven’t even had a show yet and our roster is already very deep.
While AEW might not be planning to hire a lot of former WWE Stars, there is no denying that the upstart promotion has affected the environment of the company with more and more talents voicing their frustrations with the creative process and their position in the company.
