AEW held a mandatory talent meeting at the Dynamite tapings last month. Tony Khan was reportedly “fired up” at the meeting as well, where he addressed topics such as contract tampering.
The mandatory meeting included The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho and Tony Schiavone. It was previously reported that AEW’s Chief Legal Officer reached out to WWE’s Nick Khan and Stephanie McMahon via an email/message regarding the contract tampering allegations as well.
As previously reported, WWE contacted multiple AEW stars about jumping ship. While speaking on his Hall of Fame show, Booker T expressed his doubts over WWE tampering with AEW contracts.
“As far as the contract tampering thing, I don’t know how deep that is, but I can see a little bird going out and saying, ‘Hey man, if you guys aren’t happy over there, there’s always going to be room over here for you.’ The reason I say that is because every time my contract was coming up in WCW, even way back then, a little bird would always fly over and say, ‘Hey man, if you ever want to come over there, there’s going to be a spot there for you.’ Is that contract tampering? I don’t know. I would imagine there would have to be a little bit more than that to be contract tampering
Chris Jericho even alluded to this tampering recently as well. Clearly, WWE is being more aggressive than ever now that Triple H is in charge of Creative. Regardless, we’ll keep you updated on this ongoing situation right here at Ringside News.
