Some Ex-WWE Talent See AEW As A Step Down – Want To Go Back To WWE


Some ex-WWE Superstars who now compete in AEW can’t wait to return to the Stamford promotion, it has been claimed.

Since launching in 2019, AEW has signed several ex-Superstars, some of whom have gone on to hold the AEW World Championship.


In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it is reported that the impression is that some in AEW are eager to return to WWE despite having received pushes from Tony Khan.

These ex-WWE Superstars and current AEW names have seen joining the promotion as a “step down.”

WWE is being seen as the “major league” for these unnamed ex-Superstars who hope to receive an offer to come back to WWE when their AEW deals expire.

Both promotions will have significant events this weekend, with WWE NXT: No Mercy airing tomorrow and AEW WrestleDream airing on Sunday.
