Exciting #1: Flexible contracts give fans the opportunity to see international wrestling stars

International star CIMA competes for All Elite Wrestling but can be seen overseas as well.

While the non-full time status of All Elite Wrestling contracts has caused the company problems, the benefits can outweigh the drawbacks.

WWE generally signs wrestlers to full time, exclusive contracts. The only other promotion to do this was the fallen World Championship Wrestling. By and large, most promotions allow their talent to work for other companies as well.

The non-exclusive contracts have several advantages. One, the amount paid for the contracts can be smaller because the wrestlers will be working dates for other companies and not relying on AEW as their sole source of income. Second, and more important for wrestling fans, AEW can promote international talent that fans in the United States might not otherwise be able to see.

This includes men like Dragon Gate star CIMA, who also wrestles for AEW. The fans are going to come out ahead with AEW's non-exclusive contract structure.
