• WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman Denies Talks With AEW
As we noted earlier, The Wrestling Observer reported that many big names in WWE reached out to AEW to discuss a possible future with the company. This includes “virtually everybody” on the WWE roster, whether AEW has shown interest in them or not.
