Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about signing free agents to join AEW, specifically signing potential free agents from WWE. After mentioning the signings of Mercedes Mone and Adam Copeland, Khan mentioned he'd be "open to" signing more free agents and believe there would be interest from talent.

Eisen noted that Khan didn't mention anyone by name, wondering if he was worried about tampering. Khan replied, "I don't want to try to tamper and do those things. I try to keep it classy and I really have a reputation for honesty and I really want to be a fair businessman. The wrestling business is a really cutthroat business."

Becky Lynch's name was then mentioned by Eisen, who noted that she would reportedly be a free agent soon. Asked if he would be interested in Lynch, Khan replied, "You invoked the tampering word."

Eisen's co-host TJ said Becky is a big star who brings a big fanbase with her.

"Absolutely. Great star," said Khan.

Lynch competed in a cage match for the WWE Women's World Championship against Liv Morgan in the main event of WWE Raw.
