Over the years, AEW have seemingly had a rotating door of new talent. Just last night, fans were thrilled to see the arrival of Roderick Strong who came to the aid of Adam Cole during a brawl with the JAS. However, this leaves many questions surrounding AEW performers and their contracts.
Previously, it had been reported that The Young Bucks and MJF have contracts that end on January 1 of next year with it now being revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio that there are ‘many’ other AEW stars whose contracts are due come the end of the year. Unsurprisingly, should anyway top talent depart All Elite Wrestling, it’s said that WWE would show an interest.
“There are AEW contracts that are coming due at the end of the year. Several of them. Many of them, and WWE obviously will be pursuing all of them, or all the ones that are key ones that they could get.”-WOR
It’s unclear at this current time which specific stars as being referred to during the contract talks, but, either way it will be intriguing to see who opts to stay and whether any talent choose to leave when their contract enters its final phase.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any updates on AEW’s contract news and any WWE interest as we hear more.
