• Top WWE Star Was In Talks With AEW Last Year

While speaking on the Talk N’ Shop podcast, AEW EVP Matt Jackson revealed that AJ Styles was set to debut with Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson on the debut episode of AEW Dynamite last year, but it didn’t happen because WWE and Styles agreed to a 5-year deal.

Below is what Jackson said:

“People don’t realize that when we were pitching to have you guys come in, it wasn’t just going to be the two of you, it was going to be another person who I won’t name, but another Bullet Club person who you may not want to talk about.

When we were originally going to do Dynamite, we were going to debut at Madison Square Garden. After the match, three of you, not just the two of you, the three of you were going to jump the guardrail and we were going to have like a Bullet Club reunion. We were gonna throw up the too sweet and then the three of you were going to jump us and make us bloody and destroy us and then we were going to be off to the races. And it obviously didn’t work out.

I remember the first guy in this conversation we’re talking about right now, he buzzed us and he’s like ‘I just got too good of an offer, and I would have never got the offer without your offer, so I just wanted to say thank you.’”
