All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan took part in a post-AEW All Out media scrum and discussed Matt Cardona’s status with the company, the deal to bring Thunder Rosa in for the pay-per-view, potential new signings, the decision to sign Ricky Starks, Eddie Kingston and more.

Khan said that he has enjoyed working with Matt Cardona, but stated that he is not signed as of right now. Khan said that if they can work something out with Billy Corgan and the National Wrestling Alliance, then you can expect to see more from Thunder Rosa and put over her match with Hikaru Shida which he really enjoyed. Khan said that they are keeping an eye on luchadors, noting that he watches CMLL, while they have worked with AAA in the past. Khan said that he would also love to get stars from Puerto RIco to come in as well.

Khan said that the signing of Ricky Starks was more of a lightbulb kind of thing when he was in the ring with Cody to sign him, while with Eddie Kingston, it took a little bit longer to come up with an idea. Khan said that when Cody was issuing the Open Challenge, he came in with ideas for potential opponents and Ricky Starks and Eddie Kingston were on the list.

Khan said that he saw each of them on the NWA, but that he wanted to see them in-person before he decided to make a commitment and said that even if you don’t sign someone, that does not mean that person failed. Khan said that he then had the idea to pair Kingston up with The Lucha Brothers once he was signed, but that it took a while to come up with the idea. Khan said that he wants to expand the AEW roster, as well as hours in the week for content.
