Fans on Twitter have expressed their uncertainty after reports emerged that AEW and Tony Khan have a massive interest in Juice Robinson.
The former IWGP US Champ made his AEW debut during last week’s episode of Dynamite, facing World Champion Jon Moxley in singles action. He has been a free agent since his NJPW deal expired, and it was reported that Tony Khan has taken an interest in bringing him in as a regular fixture.
However, the potential signing has been met with some backlash from fans who feel as though AEW would be better managing the talent already signed to their roster. The user below, for example, suggested that the promotion cut any wantaway stars before improving.

Others suggested that Juice would be better suited to WWE, like the user below who felt he would bring much-needed star power to NXT.
However, it wasn’t all negative, as some fans made it clear they felt he would be a great addition to the roster. Prior to working on this past week’s Dynamite, Robinson made appearances for IMPACT Wrestling, where he successfully competed in a six-man tag team match.
Bandido has reportedly been offered an AEW contract after Dynamite
Juice Robinson wouldn’t be the only AEW debutant to receive interest following his appearance. It has also been reported that former ROH World Champion Bandido was offered a contract following Dynamite.
Bandido made his debut for the promotion in search of his second ROH World Title as he challenged Chris Jericho in the main event. The match was met positively by fans and critics alike. Tony Khan was spotted embracing the luchador following his failed attempt at the title.
Despite making his debut in the promotion, this past week wasn’t the first time Bandido and Tony Khan have worked together. He was the reigning champion in Ring of Honor prior to Khan’s acquisition. He faced Jonathan Gresham at this year’s Supercard of Honor to unify the titles.
