10 Independent Wrestlers AEW Should Sign in 2021
All Elite Wrestling didn’t have the easiest start to its first year as an international television show, what with having to operate amid a world-altering pandemic. However, the fledgling wrestling company has succeeded despite these setbacks, quickly adapting to unforeseen circumstances and providing some of the most consistent entertainment on TV.
One of the highlights of AEW in the past year has been its frequent use of independent wrestlers. Between Dynamite on TNT and Dark on YouTube, AEW has featured over 130 unsigned performers, not only providing employment but giving a platform to these talented men and women at a time when independent wrestling is suffering.
Some of those indie stars, such as “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, gritty veteran Eddie Kingston, energetic tag team Top Flight, and impressive rookie Anna Jay, have since been signed to full-time AEW contracts.
As the young company looks to establish itself further in 2021, with a promised second TV show set to debut soon, we thought we would take a look at 10 of the hottest free agents in independent wrestling that we’d like to see showcased in AEW this year.
