• WWE Planning To Go Hard After Top AEW Wrestlers This Year

When Cody Rhodes left AEW last year, despite being one of the guys that helped in starting that promotion, and returned to WWE, Triple H & Vince McMahon knew they could pull other top AEW stars too if they booked Cody correctly.

Rhodes has been booked as a major star on RAW ever since. He went on to win the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match and is now going to main event WrestleMania 39 against Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Kenny Omega’s AEW contract recently expired, but some time was added to it because he was out of action for several months due to injury.

The Young Bucks’ contract is also set to expire later this year.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Triple H is planning to go hard after AEW wrestlers this year:

“If WWE had buried Cody then [WWE] would have no shot at Kenny Omega, but they didn’t. So they do. At Least you say they have a shot.

Tony Khan losing Kenny Omega from a perception point would be really bad. Kenny Omega is in a really good position.

This is going to be a really interesting year for Tony. A lot of key deals are gonna be up this year, and WWE is gonna go hard at everyone good.

There’s gonna be a lot of WWE deals up and [Tony Khan] needs to make the product, and the perception of the product, attractive enough where guys on the other side go, ‘they’re solid, they’re financially stable, they have an easier schedule, they’re doing good’.

Right now, I don’t think the perception of WWE talent is to go there. That’s the key thing, is perception for WWE talent is like ‘hey, it’s a fresh coat of paint for me, and I’m in the middle’. Those are the guys, it’s gotta be the right guys for AEW.”
