• Multiple AEW Wrestlers That Are Interested In Joining WWE Told To Wait Till 2024
According to the Wrestling Observer, multiple AEW wrestlers are interested in joining WWE.
However, they were told to wait till 2024, as that’s when AEW’s TV rights deal will get renewed and they might be able to offer more money to their wrestlers:
“Previously, there were talents that were interested in going from AEW to WWE that were told by friends in AEW to stay put until 2024 when the company would be able to budget far more for talent.
Even if AEW gets $90 million per year, it should be very profitable going forward and able to bid for a lot of talent whose deals are up and as important, retain its own top talent because WWE would bid for some of them.
It also should be noted that a lot of top AEW talent is under 200 pounds, and those guys are not likely to do well in the WWE system.”

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 57th birthday of Old School WWF Legend “The King of Harts” Owen Hart.
Owen Hart started in his family’s promotion ‘Calgary Stampede Wrestling’ during the 80s, before joining the World Wrestling Federation for the first time in 1988 as The Blue Blazer.
Owen returned to the WWF under his own name in 1991 and stayed with the promotion till his tragic death during the ‘WWF Over The Edge 1999’ PPV.
He once became the 1994 King of the Ring and won several other titles, such as the WWF Intercontinental Championship and the WWF Tag Team Championship, but has yet to be (posthumously) inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, a move that is currently prevented by his widow Martha Hart.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
May 7, 1965 – May 23, 1999
