ROH's Cary Silkin Thinks Many AEW Wrestlers Will Be ‘Worried About Their Spot’
Many think AEW’s roster is possibly too big
It is a common belief amongst wrestling fans that AEW’s roster is getting too big, with new wrestlers announced regularly, but with only so much airtime to go around.
Wrestlers like Brian Cage are reportedly frustrated by the lack of meaningful screen-time in AEW, and now former Ring of Honor President Cary Silkin has given his thoughts on the situation.
“There are so many guys there, so many guys. I am not going to bring up any names, but there were guys that were flown in to do nothing. It was a very good vibe,” Silkin said on the Wrestling Inc. Daily. “But since I’ve been around the back for 20 years, wrestlers are always unconfident, worried about their spot. I could feel that going on. Certainly not with a Bryan Danielson or Hangman Page, but there’s just a lot of people there.”
With the signings of Brody King and Jay Lethal, AEW have started bringing in former Ring of Honor talent after the legendary indie promotion went on hiatus, and SIlkin admitted he doesn’t know where other former ROH talents will end up:
“I don’t know where all those people are going to land, there’s just so much good talent. If we talk ROH for a second; [Matt] Taven, Dalton Castle, obviously The Briscoes, there are just so many names, Vincent, that have been working on their characters, Shane Taylor. These are solid people that if you or I were running a show, I think we’d want to have them.”
