Top Two Reasons Why WWE Talent Are Considering Leaving for AEW


— A number of people (this would probably include wrestlers and non-wrestlers) are inquiring about leaving WWE for AEW for a variety reasons, but according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the primary reason appears to be a lighter road schedule.

— A secondary reason is that talent seems to realize that if they are with WWE’s NXT brand, it will just take them a lot longer to get to the main roster and become a star. There are also people who strongly believe that even if you are a star in NXT, it doesn’t necessarily translate into being a top guy on Raw or Smackdown given the current regime and the unlikely chance that anything will be changing on either of the main brands.
