There was a lot of speculation as to where Cody Rhodes would go after he left AEW. WWE was the obvious choice and that is exactly where Cody Rhodes decided to go to in the end. In fact, AEW stars might be more open to signing with WWE now after recent events.
MJF has been frustrated with his contract for a while now and it led to him no-showing the Double or Nothing Fan Fest on Saturday. In fact, MJF isolated himself from the AEW locker room.
According to Bryan Alvarez on the Wrestling Observer Radio Show, more AEW stars are now willing to jump ship to WWE, should there be an attractive offer on the table.
“There’s been a big shift among people in AEW. Not that like they want out. But it’s definitely different in the sense that I get the impression that more people are willing to go [to WWE] if they get like a great offer. Whereas a couple of years ago, it wasn’t like they wouldn’t go if they offered tons of money but they were like so happy to be there [in AEW]. But now that they have seen that Cody’s made a lot of money and he’s like a top guy and he’s getting pushed, now things have absolutely changed in terms of the way that people view potentially going to WWE.”
Even Jim Ross believes more AEW stars will jump ship to WWE in the future. We will have to see whether more AEW stars leave WWE and sign with WWE or not in the future. Odds are, it is very likely to happen in the future.
