Satnam Singh: I Joined AEW Because I Wanted To Make History

Satnam Singh has made quite an impression since he debuted on AEW TV, and that’s exactly what he wanted.

The giant signed with the company last September, hoping to chase greatness in the wrestling world several years after he was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks.  The Indian native has been training at the Nightmare Factory, and he finally arrived on AEW TV on the April 13 episode of AEW Dynamite; after the main event match, he aligned with Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt. The trio proceeded to attack Samoa Joe.

During an interview with Ruby Arora, which was recorded before his debut, Singh explained his decision to join AEW in the first place. He noted that by signing with AEW, he could make history for India. On the other hand, he pointed out that there are already Indian wrestlers in WWE.

“I had given trials for WWE as well, and I liked it very much as well,” said Singh. “And I liked AEW as well. AEW is like brand new, it’s only been a couple of years, and it’s really fire. I thought that if I go to AEW, I would be the first again. First wrestler from India. I will make another history for India in AEW. And if I go to WWE, that would be amazing, but amazing why? Because they already have Indian people over there. They have the Indian wrestler. Why don’t I go start there, where they have no Indian guys and create history again after reaching there. For, not for me, for the Indian wrestlers, for everyone.”

AEW president Tony Khan recently stated that Singh’s debut could have been handled better. His comments are available here.
