WWE Actively Pushing Unhappy Superstars To Combat AEW Interest

WWE doesn’t want to have a workplace that people don’t want to be a part of. After all, most WWE Superstars worked their entire careers to get to WWE and if they want to leave then it must be bad. However, the company is taking some steps to convince people to stay.

We previously reported that WWE made a promise to The Revival to focus on the tag team division which they will be a focal point of. We can only assume The Usos were told something similar because WWE really doesn’t want Jimmy and Jey leaving when their contracts are up on April.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE has “given unhappy guys more of a push and are upping pay with the new TV deals and Saudi money.”

It is interesting that this report came out after Mike Johnson stated that Superstars were pulled aside and offered bigger deals out of nowhere after the news broke about Dean Ambrose’s upcoming exit.

Offering bigger contracts isn’t anything new for WWE though. The company might be downplaying things, but AEW could be a threat that they are worrying about.
