Below are some top AEW & WWE news stories of the day, involving Chris Jericho and Mandy Rose.

• During an interview with WFAA, Chris Jericho was asked about the backstage reaction in AEW to CM Punk returning to WWE after getting fired from All Elite Wrestling.

Here’s what Jericho said:

“It’s business as usual. It happens; it’s the same reason why I’m sure there wasn’t a big reaction when Adam Copeland (Edge) came to AEW or when Will Ospreay signed with AEW or when Danielson, Moxley, and Adam Cole came to AEW.

It’s good for the business that guys have the ability to go between companies; it’s great for the fans and it’s great for the talent overall. It just makes the business stronger and that’s the most important thing.”

• Mandy Rose, once the NXT Women’s Champion, experienced a career resurgence in WWE but was released due to her online activities, including non-PG content on platforms like FanTime.

Despite no current WWE movement to re-sign her, a report from FightFans indicates that the company would be open to discussions about her potential return.

The source stated that WWE is not against the idea if it aligns with both parties’ interests.

It’s worth noting that WWE has undergone significant changes, including a regime shift with the company’s sale to Endeavor and Triple H leading the creative team.

Rose, who has explored other ventures, has not indicated whether she would accept a return offer if extended by WWE.
