AEW's Tony Khan 'high on the idea' of new Trust Busters trio

The new heel group might be tabbed for AEW or Ring of Honor.

On the heels of a new group debuting at Saturday's AEW Dark tapings in Orlando, Dave Meltzer is reporting that The Trust Busters may be around to stay -- either in AEW or Ring of Honor.

The new group is made up of Ariya Daivari (now going by Ari), former ROH wrestler Slim J, and former WWE NXT wrestler Parker Boudreaux.

Over several segments during the tapings, the new group began to form. Ari said he is the richest person in pro wrestling after his trust fund kicked in, followed by him recruiting Slim J into his group. The two then teamed up to pick up a win.

Later in the day, Boudreaux made his surprise debut and it was then revealed he was part of the group.

Meltzer said, "Right now no decision has been made regarding if this will be primarily for AEW or ROH, but Tony Khan was high on the idea."

While AEW might not be an immediate option due to the amount of talent currently on the roster, ROH does return to pay-per-view this Saturday with Death Before Dishonor -- their first event since early-April. 

While no announcement has been made regarding ROH returning to TV, Khan has mentioned in the past that he is in talks with Warner Bros. Discovery.
