• 3 Top AEW Stars Sent Out Feelers To WWE
According to Ryan Frederick of the Wrestling Observer, his source in the WWE has told him that former AEW World Tag Team & Trios Champions The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) recently sent out of feelers to WWE.
However, this happened before the backstage fight at All Out and they are just looking to get the best deal possible, and this doesn’t mean that they are planning to leave All Elite Wrestling:
“What I said is 100% true and I have it from multiple people. It’s also not a big deal and not really newsworthy. It’s not like they actually reached out to WWE management.
They told a friend in the company, a fellow wrestler, that they would be willing to listen to offers when their deals are up (I believe January 2024) and to let it be known.
It’s something every single wrestler in the business should be doing – it’s called maximizing your leverage. It is no different than an NFL or MLB player coming into the final year of their contract and letting it be known they are going to free agency and listening to offers from the other teams.
And, in the sense of independent contractors, it’s not different than a NASCAR or Formula One driver letting other teams know that their contract runs out at a certain time and they’ll be listening to offers.
Except wrestling is a weird business where you have to use your friends on the other side to let this message be known.
It does not mean they want to leave. It means they’re looking to get the best deal they can. That’s it. It’s a non-story. And if you’re a wrestler with a deal coming up in the next 18 months and you aren’t playing both sides, you need to fix that.
And it doesn’t matter if it was now or at any point in the future before their contracts run out, they were going to reach out. It’s inevitable and why this is a complete non-story to be honest (and the feeler I was talking about happened before the incidents of this past weekend for the record – it was a few weeks ago). It’s just plain common sense.”
Ringsidenews later added that former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega also sent out feelers to WWE while he was out of action with an injury.

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (September 12, 1992) – WBF BodyStars *Final Episode*
On this day in 1992, Vince McMahon’s World Bodybuilding Federation aired the last ever episode of their weekly TV show ‘WBF BodyStars’.
They usually taped a full month of TV content for the show during their monthly tapings featuring some of the best Bodybuilding-Superstars on the planet at that time.
World Wrestling Federation owner Vince McMahon, who back then was only known as WWF commentator, also worked as the host on WBF BodyStars.
His very own bodybuilding-nutrition-supplement brand ICOPRO was usually advertised during every episode.
Former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Lex Luger was signed away from Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in March of 1992, in order to join the World Bodybuilding Federation and appear on television for them.
With WWF doctor Dr. Zahorian being arrested in 1991 and Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation dealing with the infamous steroid scandal by 1992, the timing to run his own Bodybuilding promotion couldn’t possibly have been any worse, which is why the project was doomed to fail and it eventually disbanded.
