Below are a couple of top WWE & AEW news stories of the day:

• During an interview with BBC Radio, SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis said he’d like to see CM Punk return to WWE, despite all the backstage controversies he was involved in during his time in AEW.

Below is what Aldis said:

“He’s built & cultivated a huge fanbase, he sells a ton of merchandise, he moves numbers, he sells tickets, he puts butts in seats. Call me old fashioned but that trumps everything else.

There is a way for him to compete in WWE & I think that if it can be done and I think there is a way it can be really good business for everybody & I will wait with bated breath like everyone else to see if it happens, but if it does I’ll be excited to be involved with it.”

• Before this week’s AEW Dynamite began, Tony Khan revealed that the newest signing in All Elite Wrestling will debut at this Saturday’s Full Gear 2023 PPV.

Below is what he tweeted:

“AEW has agreed to terms with one of the world’s best wrestlers, a pro who is known + respected by virtually every AEW fan! They’ll come to LA to sign their contract THIS SATURDAY 11/18 on PPV at AEW Full Gear!”

According to Andrew Zarian, NJPW’s IWGP UK (US) Champion Will Ospreay is expected to be the mystery man who signs an AEW contract this Saturday night:

“I was told Will Ospreay. That is a big deal. Huge deal because WWE was actively pursuing him.”
