Report: Wrestler Under AEW Contract Was Apparently Contacted By WWE Talent Relations


-- Since WWE's change in leadership earlier this summer, Triple H has spearheaded an initiative to bolster the company's roster by bringing back talent that were previously released. It seems that WWE's targets aren't just limited there if a report from fightfulselect.com is accurate. The story notes that sources in AEW report that a "notable AEW talent" has told management that WWE has reached out to them about potentially joining WWE.

-- This unnamed talent is under contract to AEW and made it clear to company officials that he's happy there and had no desire to leave the promotion. The talent also reportedly felt that higher ups in AEW deserved to know that he was contacted. The story added that it appears a member of WWE's talent relations departed reached out to the AEW talent but was instead re-directed to the wrestlers' representation instead of speaking directly to them. The wrestler apparently confirmed this interaction with fightful but wishes to stay anonymous.

-- WWE representatives have thus far not commented on this story or claim, though it is believed that it is well known that the AEW wrestler is signed to a deal, which would implicate WWE in a possible tampering charge.
