Tony Khan: At The Rate WWE Is Letting Big Stars Go, AEW Will Have No Shortage Of Debuts

What happens when the pops run out? Tony Khan isn't worried about that happening with all of the WWE releases.

AEW All Out was the most successful pay-per-view in company history and was highlighted by CM Punk's first match in seven years plus the debuts of Adam Cole, Bryan Danielson, and Ruby Soho. Tony Khan made the decision to stack the debuts and he stands by it.

"It was my call to do it and I think it was the right move to give fans that paid for All Out that experience. Since it was the biggest pay-per-view audience we've ever had, I wanted to give them the best pay-per-view we've ever done. That's generally my philosophy is to do good shows so people will want to watch them. All Out was the most positive feedback we've ever had about any show we've ever done. It was also the most revenue we've ever done of any show we've done. I felt it was the right move to load it up and give the fans all these moments. The end of the show, with Danielson and Cole debuting, was my call and I think it was the right move," Khan told Wade Keller of PWTorch when asked if he thought about spacing the debuts out.

Khan capped things off by saying, "At the rate they [WWE] are letting big stars go and firing people, I will not have a shortage of people to debut in the months ahead."

WWE released seventeen talents on November 4 including main roster superstars such as Keith Lee, Karrion Kross and Eva Marie.
