As All Elite Wrestling gears up for its Double or Nothing Ticket Announcement Party on February 7 in Vegas, the formation of the new promotion has already opened up the possibilities of siphoning away talent from other major promotions.
With Chris Jericho already on board, Kenny Omega reportedly on the way, and a potential TV deal that is reportedly the best deal any non-WWE wrestling show will have secured since WCW days, it was only a matter of time before offers began making their way to WWE Superstars.
According to @WrestleVotes, "AEW has made an 'outstanding' offer to a current, big time WWE Superstar. An offer that is almost too good to turn down." In the comments people asked who it was, but the account said they wouldn't release the name.
Seems like the first real shot has been fired... source says AEW has made an "outstanding" offer to a current, big time WWE superstar. An offer that is almost too good to turn down. Things are really about to get interesting.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) February 5, 2019
I'm not releasing the name, stop asking. Once the offer is accepted or declined, I'm sure your savior Meltz will have the details you all crave. https://t.co/970K1y4JoN— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) February 5, 2019
Wrestle Votes has broken stories in the past and first reported on Daniel Bryan's new WWE Title before it aired on TV.
I've seen two versions of the new Daniel Bryan WWE Title. One stands out more than the other. It's a wood designed front plate on a burlap strap, with green and blue earth stones as opposed to diamonds. Not sure if they are going to pick that one, but it sure is different.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) January 30, 2019
The other isn't so drastic. Features an "eco" sourced strap, and "recycled" materials to make up the plates. Still shines. I'd go with the wood option, but we'll see.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) January 30, 2019
As noted, some bigger names in WWE have made news in regards to their WWE contracts. Dean Ambrose decided not to re-sign with WWE when his contract ends in April. Last week, AJ Styles shot down reports that he had re-signed with WWE.
What was that? Are you sure? Please let me know the more because I know nothing about this. ?? https://t.co/912V4k44uy— AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) February 3, 2019
