“I think a lot has changed in recent months and some huge stars have come into AEW. The No. 1 contender now is Bryan Danielson. I think that’s the biggest rivalry in AEW and maybe all of wrestling right now. Bryan Danielson vs. ‘Hangman’ Page. Bryan Danielson, I can tell you officially as the rankings committee, Bryan Danielson is still the No. 1 contender, and I’m very excited for the resolution of this situation…So any plans that we might’ve had in advance really have to go out the window when you have such a great No. 1 contender stepping into the situation. And so many other huge wrestlers have joined AEW just in recent months.

“Huge names like CM Punk, Adam Cole, Malakai Black, Andrade El Idolo and many others,” the AEW President continued. “There is a great title picture and a lot of other great wrestlers in AEW who I think could be great champions like PAC, MJF, Jungle Boy, the TNT champion Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin and so many other great wrestlers potentially who could step up.”

There is no doubt AEW has done a great job filling up its roster and signing big names to the promotion. The proof is in the fun championship plans for 2022.
