WWE/AEW

Since its inception, Tony Khan has managed to sign a number of free agents to AEW that attracted interest from WWE.

Recent additions include Will Ospreay, Mercedes Mone (Sasha Banks), Kazuchika Okada and Deonna Purrazzo.

Ospreay has previously discussed his reasons for signing with AEW, noting that he “could be in Britain.”

He would also reveal that WWE “wasn’t that well paid and wasn’t that much of a schedule” compared to what AEW was offering him.

Recently, AEW owner Tony Khan appeared on Cincy 360 and gave his insight into why he thinks AEW is better than WWE, saying:

“We have, in my opinion, the most exciting matches and great stories happening.

“We are truly a challenger brand. We fight against the establishment and have built up a huge fan base in a relatively short time.

“People who like the fast, exciting action and the interviews. I think people at AEW really feel a connection with the wrestlers. We don’t write the interviews here.

“I think that’s a big difference. I think our greatest strength is the quality of the athletes and the charisma of our biggest stars.”

He would also reveal why he thinks “big free agents” would choose to sign with AEW, stating:

“Some of the biggest names in wrestling are in AEW, and there’s a reason why these big free agents want to come here to AEW. It’s because this is the place for the best wrestling.”

Mercedes Mone made her AEW debut with Big Business in March 2024, with it being reported that her deal “probably makes her the highest-paid female performer in wrestling history.”

Kazuchika Okada also debuted in March 2024, with his deal reported to be “for three years and worth approximately $4.5 million per year.”
