AEW Talent Responsible for Scouting Indie Talent for AEW Work

Various indie talents have been making appearances for AEW since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

Fightful Select reported that Britt Baker, Christopher Daniels, and QT Marshall have been the main people behind the scenes in AEW who have been recommending certain indie talents be brought in for AEW Dynamite and Dark shows.

It was reported that of the three, Baker has had the most influence in recommending outside talent for shows. Marshall reportedly helps work with talent at his Nightmare Factory in Norcross, Georgia. Daniels had a similar scouting role during his time in Ring of Honor.
