During a recent interview with Fightful, former WWE Superstar Fred “Darren Young” Rosser was asked about a potential return to the ring. He confirmed to them that he’s reached out to other wrestling companies such as ROH, NJPW, and AEW about his interest in working for them. He said,
“Any interview I take, I let the people know I’m interested. ROH, New Japan, AEW — I’m 35 and I feel alive. I’ve reached out to Brandi Rhodes in AEW. I’ve reached out to Sonny Kiss to see if he wants to team up with me and he seemed excited. I sent ideas to Brandi from AEW. I sent out feelers to ROH. In wrestling, we’re professional waiters. We wait on the rental car, at the airport. I didn’t just get off the football field and go to the Performance Center. I grinded on the independents from 2002 to 2009. There were 75 guys and girls I beat out at my tryouts. I know what it’s like to cut my teeth and all that.”
Darren Young was fired by WWE in October 2017.
