Tony Khan Confirms AEW Fight Forever Roster Isn’t Finalized, Still Adding Recent Signees

Tony Khan has confirmed that AEW Fight Forever‘s roster will be bigger than initially reported.

Last month, excited fans of the upcoming All Elite Wrestling console game got quite the scare when it was reported that the roster would only feature around 50 wrestlers at the launch of the game. But with Tony Khan confirming that the roster is not yet finalized and still being added to, that clearly isn’t the case.

All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan was a recent guest on The Corner podcast with Andreas Hale to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about AEW Fight Forever, the new All Elite Wrestling console game, Khan wouldn’t put a date on it just yet but confirmed that they are still adding names to the game’s ever-growing roster. He also confirmed that the roster would continue to expand after release through DLC additions.

“I’m not gonna put an exact date on it. But we’ve put a lot of time and effort into the development of this game. It’s gonna be great,” Khan said. “A lot of the great stars of AEW are in it, and a number of people who’ve come in, even in the past year, will be featured in that game, and a lot of big stars have come in in the past year, and we’ve added some stars along the way that I think are really important to get in the game for everybody.

“So we’ll have a great roster when we launch, and then we’ll still be able to add people through DLC as we go, but making sure we get the best possible roster when we start. We’ve signed so many wrestlers in the last year, especially in the recent months. We may not be able to get every single person in, but people that have signed pretty recently, we’re still trying to get some of the biggest names in because we think that’s the best chance for the launch of the game is to have some of the biggest stars in the world of wrestling in the game, and we already had a lot of them, and we’re adding more.”

Tony Khan recently spoke about Eric Bischoff’s recent remarks where he called Punk a financial flop for AEW. Khan called Bischoff’s remarks “bullsh-t” before going into great detail about why it simply wasn’t true; read about how he said Punk’s success is supported by evidence at this link.
