Report: Major Former WWE Champion Held Talks With AEW

When Paul Wight said on AEW Dynamite this week that a major free agent would be debuting for the promotion at Revolution tonight, one of the names that fans speculated with regards to the signing was Batista.

Speaking about the possibility of Batista being the major star to debut at Revolution tonight, Dave Meltzer said he didn’t think it was the former WWE Champion, but noted that the two parties have held discussions before.

On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that Batista and All Elite Wrestling (AEW) have held talks before, having the following to say on the matter:

“I don’t think that it’s Dave Bautista, but I do know they’ve discussed it.”

Dave Meltzer did not reveal exactly when AEW and Batista supposedly had these contract talks, so make sure you stay tuned to for any additional information on the matter.

Speaking about who this mystery signing could be, Dave Meltzer also noted that a former WWE Superstar, who some people have speculated, is booked for a signing so likely won’t be appearing on the PPV.
