• Former WWE Wrestler Rejected Twice By AEW

AEW has signed some of the best talents who used to work for WWE in the past, but that doesn’t mean the company is interested in signing every former WWE wrestler.

Former WWE Tag Team Champion Fred Rosser (known as Darren Young in WWE) took to Twitter to reveal that he contacted AEW twice for an opportunity in the company, but he was rejected.

You can read his tweet below:

“I get asked a lot why not @AEW? Well, I tried and I was told NOPE…NOT ☝🏼 but ✌🏼…besides AEW wasn’t my end goal it’s always been NJPW @njpw1972 🙏🏼 No matter what, don’t ever get overwhelmed and decide to throw in the towel. I’ve still got a lot of work to do! #blockthehate”

Rosser was released by WWE in October 2017.
