AEW brought Revolution to fans and there were a few newsworthy moments throughout that event. The company has even more in store for 2021.
Tony Khan had Ethan Page up his sleeve for a while, but Christian Cage’s signing came together much faster.
During the media scrum following Revolution, Tony Khan explained that AEW has even more tricks up their sleeves. He didn’t explicitly say that there will be more signings, but it certainly sounds like he has some exciting plans for the roster they have available.
“I would be remiss if I didn’t leave the scrum without promising everyone this; in this year, 2021, I promise you, I’m going to have some aces up my sleeve. You are going to see some cool stuff. You are going to see some stuff you didn’t expect to see. This is is the beginning. I promise it’s going to be a great year for AEW.”
The fact that Khan said “aces” made a lot of fans think of Hiroshi Tanahashi. This is actually a possibility now with the forbidden door open.
2021 will also hopefully see the return of live touring in some form. A few states are now opening up and the possibilities are out there to run in New York, New Jersey, and Texas among other states. We’ll have to see what AEW has in store, but Tony Khan will continue to hype their upcoming plans.
