#5 Paul Wight comments on Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, and Ric Flair joining AEW
Wyatt, Strowman, and Flair were recently released by WWE and many fans feel that they could potentially end up in Tony Khan's promotion.
Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman, in particular, are genuine main event attractions. Paul Wight spoke about the possibility of AEW signing the former WWE champions and what they could add to an already stacked roster.
"For those other talents like Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Ric Flair, and all those guys, there’s always an opportunity for people of that calibre to be a part of AEW and contribute. That’s the thing with wrestling. You never say never," Paul Wight explained. "It would be great to see those guys come in and be it’d be great to see some of the young AEW talent get the chance to interact with guys who have seen that massive stardom and how that moulds your performances and in-ring psychology. They can learn from that and prepare these young AEW talents for what’s coming in the future, giving them the opportunity to grow and be part of what's going to be a globally impactful company."

Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman will immediately add a different dimension to AEW.
Wyatt is known to be one of the best creative minds in the business, while Strowman is a super athlete who could become a valuable member of any roster. Ric Flair has all the makings of a terrific manager and a wealth of wrestling knowledge which could help up and coming stars.
It seems far-fetched to think all three will land up in AEW soon, but if they do, fans will be in for something special.
