• All Elite Wrestling Offering “WWE Level” Money To Wrestlers
According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, All Elite Wrestling (which is backed by the wealthy Khan Family) is offering wrestlers “WWE Level” money to get signed to exclusive contacts.
This is quite interesting as Satin previously also reported that some popular WWE Superstars are keeping an eye on All Elite Wrestling as they’re not happy with their current position in WWE.
According to a reliable source, the AEW contract offers are very comparable to what people make in WWE.

All Elite Wrestling is holding a rally next week on January 8 to announce more information regarding their company and “Double Or Nothing” event.
They will be in the same town as WWE for next week’s SmackDown Live.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE’s representatives will be monitoring AEW’s activities during that rally.
At this point, it looks like AEW will be trying to do whatever they can to give WWE a run for their money as they’re looking to go after WWE wrestlers whose contracts are coming up.
