During a recent interview with Karissa Maxwell of Sporting News, Tony Khan discussed the diversity on the AEW roster, mentioning the company's strong LGBTQ+ representation in stars such as Anthony Bowens, Jake Atlas, and former AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose.
“I think in the LGBTQ community, we have great representation,” Khan said. “(We have) Nyla Rose, a former Woman’s World Champion, the first transgender World Champion in wrestling ever. Of course, diversifying the roster is very important and we saw that… as we added great free agents this week including Keith Lee and AQA.
“And I plan to continue to diversify and expand the roster, and I’m very excited about what we’re doing. Also, Jake Atlas. He was another great debut who really serves, you know, the (LGBTQ+) community and he’s a great person. I was sorry he had that injury on Rampage against Adam Cole, but I’m really excited about him and we’re going to take care of him while he’s out. I’m a big fan of Jake Atlas too.”
