All Superstars Who Might Shift To WWE And AEW Vice-Versa In 2023

9 months ago By Sports Desk

The year 2024 is approaching and, therefore, dates that can bring a lot of noise to the professional wrestling community in the United States. With the birth of All Elite Wrestling, many wrestlers signed for Tony Khan for several years. Those dates expire very soon, but in WWE several talents are ending their contracts. That is why, based on the situation of contracts and rumours, we ventured to make a list of what would be the most successful movements from one company to another.

Edge: from WWE to AEW

If we had to bet on a safe transfer, most of us would put Edge as our first option. The WWE superstar has done everything in the company and has lived a dream, returning to action many years after having to retire forcibly. He is very close to hanging up his boots for good, and his last fight cannot be – with all due respect to the Celtic Warrior – a match against Sheamus on Friday Night SmackDown, no matter how special it may have felt.

Do you have options to go to AEW?
Now, everything depends on him, his contract ends at the end of September and then he will be free to do what he wants. Some media claim that the fighter and WWE are very distant when it comes to an economic agreement, and Tony Khan may offer him enough money to not think twice.

What could he do as a standout in AEW?
Of course, Edge would be qualified to have a run as world champion. He is not in his physical prime and the years go by, but CM Punk and Chris Jericho also had their shortcomings noticed and they won the gold anyway. But it seems more like his career has to end with Christian in some way, either by facing him or having an old-fashioned tag team match.

Chances: 9/10

Jade Cargill: from AEW to WWE

This is possibly the safest transfer of all. Jade Cargill has become one of the most powerful women in professional wrestling in recent years. Her 60 consecutive wins and her 500+ day reign as TBS Champion is an incredible calling card for WWE. Her physique and overall aura make one think that she is made to succeed at the top of sports entertainment.

Do you have options to go to WWE?
It seems that everything is done. We would say that, at the time of writing, he may have already signed a contract with WWE. The last few hours have been very intense when it comes to information about his departure from AEW and his arrival at WWE.

What could he do as a standout in WWE?
Most agree that Jade Cargill must go through the WWE Performance Center before being able to step on the main roster. A season in NXT wouldn’t go amiss, to familiarize himself with the company’s product and style, and to improve its weaknesses. She has to polish her technique in the ring if she wants to be able to compete with fighters of the calibre of Rhea Ripley, Charlotte Flair or Asuka, among others.

Chances: 10/10

AJ Styles: from WWE to AEW

AJ Styles ends his contract with WWE at the beginning of 2024. There is relatively little left for that to happen and the company has begun to make moves. It is not the first time that we see how a talent who is in the midcard, without many plans and with the contract close to ending, takes on a more important role than usual. It’s happening currently, with Styles teaming up with John Cena on SmackDown. WWE knows that the fighter has value and has entered the game.

Do you have options to go to AEW?
The truth is that AJ Styles has adapted very well to the life of a WWE superstar. Many thought he wouldn’t fit in from the beginning, but over time he has become a true “company man.” We have been able to verify this personally in the press conferences, where The Phenomenal One has adapted very well to his role. However, it will depend on him if he wants to continue in WWE to earn money or have one last run in another company, in this case, All Elite Wrestling. The move would be very daring on his part.

What could he do as a standout in AEW?
Unlike the case of Edge, where the veteran wrestler shows symptoms of not having much more gas in the tank, AJ Styles could offer a great career in All Elite Wrestling for two or three years. He has good contacts in the company and would fit very well into any of the main storylines, including the World Championship match.

Chances: 6/10

CM Punk: from AEW to WWE

We know, that CM Punk is no longer part of All Elite Wrestling, but if his signing by WWE were to occur, we could consider it as a transfer due to the length of time that has passed since his dismissal. Without a doubt, it would be the great surprise of the year, a return that has been in the works since before the pandemic, when Punk made his debut in WWE Backstage.

Do you have options to go to WWE?
Everyone believes that CM Punk had the door closed by Triple H and Vince McMahon, but privately some have assured that the chairman was very fond of him. Although it doesn’t matter, the rules of the game have changed in the last week with the birth of TKO. Vince is still in charge, but not like before. CM Punk already worked for Endeavor when he debuted in the UFC and the company knows that he could still bring in a lot of money.

What could he do as a standout in WWE?
We are one of those who wanted CM Punk back to WWE in 2021, but over time we have realized that his greatness lies in the noise he generates. If WWE hires him, they will have to find him a very suitable story. Times at the company have changed and the product is not based on throwing bullets outward. Triple H (or whoever) has done a great job in the last year and having a person like CM Punk on the microphone can cause you a lot of unnecessary problems.

Chances: 5/10

MJF: from AEW to WWE

The arrival of Cody Rhodes to WWE hurt All Elite Wrestling on an image level. A similar move could happen if MJF decides to pack his bags and change his scene. He has been flirting with that option for a long time, publicly threatening Tony Khan about leaving him, although the truth is that he has calmed down lately, partly also thanks to the change in character he has experienced being around Adam. Cole.

Do you have options to go to WWE?
According to MJF himself, his contract ends at the beginning of 2024. He renewed his agreement in 2022 but did not extend the duration. It may be true, although it is another matter whether we believe it. It has been his trump card for a long time and very soon we will know how serious he was.

What could he do as a standout in WWE?
In WWE there is a lot of competition for similar roles. Currently, we have real monsters on the microphone, such as Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Austin Theory, Grayson Waller and LA Knight, among others. Earning a position in that field is going to be difficult, even for someone like MJF. However, he has become known in the United States thanks to his reign as AEW world champion, and that has a lot of weight.

Chances: 6/10
