The non-compete clauses for Keith Lee, Mia Yim, Karrion Kross, Ember Moon, and more expired on February 2, making them free agents following their WWE releases.

AEW President Tony Khan plans to remain active in the free agent market.

"Just in the last several weeks, we've made some big ones and I plan to make some more big signings. Not in the long-term future, I mean in the short-term future. I'll still be active in the free agent market and the forbidden door shall be opening again very soon. I guarantee you we'll be making news out of tonight's show and then we'll have some big news next week too," he said on Busted Open Radio.

When asked about continuing to make signings and get fans excited for the new talent, Khan said, "I have to say, I really love listening to the wrestling fans. I love wrestling myself and I'm a fan. I believe the fans give us the direction and it's up to us to give great shows that the people want to see. I don't want it to be handed down on high. For me, anytime we can sign somebody that's going to make the fans excited and come in here and give the fans big matches that they are excited to watch and bring new fans to AEW, it's a great opportunity for us. I will continue to explore the free agent market and the forbidden door will be opening again soon."
