AEW’s Tony Khan issues official statement Brock Lesnar joining AEW

Tony Khan and Brock LesnarThe news of Brock Lesnar’s free agency is the biggest talking point in professional wrestling. The Beast Incarnate’s WWE contract reportedly came to an end at WrestleMania 36.

 

His merchandise deal also expired not too long ago, which led to WWE removing his Superstar pages from the online stores.  Lesnar is free to sign with any company now, including UFC and AEW, although it is believed that Lesnar and WWE will eventually come to terms on a new deal.

During a media call this week, Wrestling Inc. asked AEW President Tony Khan if he had any talks with Brock Lesnar.

“I can’t comment on that at this time, but I’ve enjoyed Brock’s work for many years,” Khan told Wrestling Inc. Managing Editor Nick Hausman. “He’s a great fighter and a great wrestler.

I don’t think people talk enough about how great of a worker Brock Lesnar is, and he’s one of the great working big men I’ve ever seen, one of the the great athletes in the wrestling business. I have so much respect for him, but I [can’t] comment on that.”
