Real Reason Several AEW Stars Want To Join WWE?

Real Reason Several AEW Stars Want To Join WWE? AEW

The work schedule of a pro-wrestler is pretty exhausting. I would know, because I once saw a wrestling match and it looked pretty tiring.

What with WWE holding several live events in addition to TV show every week, and AEW taping several shows a week, it’s hardly surprising to hear the schedule is becoming an issue for some.

It has been reported that both Malakai Black and Buddy Matthews are keen to be released from their AEW contracts in order to re-join WWE, and Ryan Frederick of the Wrestling Observer has perhaps revealed why.

According to Frederick on the Wrestling Observer forum, the only AEW stars really interested in re-joining WWE are those with significant others in WWE, which would include Black and Matthews.

Black is of course married to Zelina Vega, and Matthews is currently dating Rhea Ripley.

Frederick wrote:

“The only guys that really want to go back are the ones who have significant others with the other company.”

Another name that has been brought up as a result of this report is Andrade El Idolo, who is married to Charlotte Flair, but there have been no reports to suggest Andrade is looking to leave AEW, although there were rumors a few weeks ago based on some of his social media activity.
