Satnam Singh explains why he's in AEW and not WWE.
Satnam Singh, with his gigantic stature, is looking to make history in AEW and while he says he has no regrets regarding his journey, he does wish he’d have understood sooner that he could have had a career in professional wrestling.
"The only regret I have is if I could’ve understood that I could’ve been a wrestler before, I think I would have been a better wrestler in the world," said Singh to Ruby Arora in an interview recorded prior to his AEW debut. "When the opportunity came up about 4 to 5 years ago if I would’ve said yes, I would be A big, huge, giant wrestler.
“I had given trials for WWE as well, and I liked it very much as well,” continued Singh. “I liked AEW as well. AEW is like brand new, it’s only been a couple of years, and it’s really fire. I thought that if I go to AEW, I would be the first again. The first wrestler from India. I will make [more] history for India in AEW. If I go to WWE, that would be amazing, but amazing why? Because they already have Indian people over there. They have the Indian wrestler. Why don’t I go start there, where they have no Indian guys, and create history again after reaching there. Not for me, for the Indian wrestlers, for everyone.”
Satnam Singh debuted on the April 13 episode of Dynamite, attacking Samoa Joe from behind. During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan said he believed the debut could have gone better. Learn more here.
