5 WWE stars that AEW could target
- Who will AEW rope in next?
AEW has been slowly and steadily gaining prominence and they've signed some good wrestlers and some big stars as well. Wrestlers like Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, Goldberg and Neville are part of AEW and rightly so in recent times they've moved their focus from recruiting to getting the other logistics in place.
But still, when you look at it, you see that the AEW roster is a bit thin. They've signed some good wrestlers but they are still lacking the star power. A wrestler who doesn't need to get over and is already known by everyone. Yes, wrestlers like Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho do fit the bill but AEW could do with a few more. Looking at the current situation in WWE and the gross mishandling of some of the legit superstars (and the resultant possible frustration they could be garnering), AEW could look at a few potential targets which it can bring to its roster and provide them with a chance to shine and do something different.
Let's have a look at some of the probable wrestlers that AEW could target in the coming future:-
#1 Rey Mysterio
It's a bit of a shock to see Rey Mysterio do the kinds of things he does in a Wrestling ring especially after doing all of this for so long. At the same time, as a fan, it's almost infuriating to see Rey not getting much of the spotlight in WWE despite putting on classics after classics whenever he gets a chance.
One of the reasons is because of the notion in WWE where they feel Rey is at the end of the road and won't be able to add too much value to the company (contrary to how he still moves in the ring). AEW could do with a star like Rey because what Rey brings to the table is a bit of both. The quality of matches that Rey delivers are among the best in the business and at the same time, the amount of love that Rey has garnered throughout his career is unprecedented. Someone like him would be an amazing addition for AEW even if he doesn't stick around for the long haul.
