AEW Rampage was introduced last year as a way to give fans more worthwhile wrestling content. Initially, the show had great ratings, but that did not last all that long whatsoever.

Tony Khan credits Keith Lee with Shane Taylor's arrival in AEW and the new ROH. Since Khan acquired ROH in March, many fans have expressed their interest in seeing Taylor, a former ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion, return to the company. Like many other ROH stars, Taylor left the company after it went on hiatus following the Final Battle 2021 pay-per-view, as ROH did not renew the wrestlers' contracts. While some stars like Dalton Castle and The Briscoes (Mark & Jay Briscoe) have been part of the new ROH, Taylor had remained absent until he debuted on the December 2 episode of AEW Rampage. There, he challenged his former partner Keith Lee to a tag team match at ROH Final Battle, where Taylor and JD Griffey will face Lee and Swerve Strickland.

AEW's Tony Khan was on the Battleground Podcast this week and addressed one of the more prevalent criticisms regarding his booking — how he introduces newly-signed stars to AEW programming. Sometimes a wrestler can be introduced with little to no fanfare, other times they'll make their surprise debut and win their first match only to be off TV with no clear storyline mere weeks later. While there are plenty of examples of new talent successfully making an impact upon arrival (Saraya comes to mind from the last few months), a few recent examples have drawn criticism from fans.
