• WWE Officials Are Interested In Signing AEW Powerhouse
AEW Powerhouse Wrestler Wardlow will face CM Punk on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
According to the Wrestlevotes, WWE Officials are interested in signing him:
“With his biggest match to date happening later tonight, I can confirm, without hesitation, that WWE will be extremely interested in luring Wardlow away from AEW when his contract is due.
There are several people within World Wrestling Entertainment that LOVE his potential.”
Below is the match-card for tonight’s Dynamite:
– CM Punk vs. Wardlow
– Sammy Guevara (c) vs. Daniel Garcia for the Interim TNT Championship
– PowerHouse Hobbs vs. Dante Martin

Speaking of WWE and AEW, John Laurinaitis (WWE’s Head of Talent Relations) is in talks with AEW President Tony Khan about using some AEW talent (who are former WWE Superstars) for upcoming WWE documentaries.
If Tony agrees to this deal, then it won’t be the first time that a wrestler under contract with AEW appeared on WWE’s programming.
In 2021, Chris Jericho appeared on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions on the WWE Network while being under contract with AEW, and openly discussed AEW during his interview with Austin.
