Dustin Rhodes Comments On AEW Talents Potentially Jumping Ship To WWE
Could AEW stars jump to WWE? Dustin Rhodes has had his say
The rumour mills have been buzzing since Triple H was put in charge of WWE Creative, with wrestling fans wondering who could jump ship to WWE rom AEW and beyond.
With former ‘Triple H guys’ like Andrade El Idolo and Adam Cole now a part of AEW, many wondered if they could request their release to rejoin WWE. However, AEW’s Dustin Rhodes has been blunt about anyone jumping ship right now, saying the following on Busted Open Radio:
“[Chuckles] Did you see [Tony Khan’s] interview?” Said Rhodes. “Yeah, I mean you got the few that just left there [WWE] that are under five-year deals, right? So we got ‘em for a while. They’re not just gonna up and leave, you can’t do that. That’s what a contract is about. As far as anybody else that doesn’t have that deal, hey man, go for it, whatever. I think experience it if you want to. If you don’t like the current atmosphere, that’s a personal issue. You need to move on. Maybe they’ll do something different with you over there, you know what I mean?
“I think it’s going to be a change slowly with Triple H at the helm but it’s gonna be a good change, it’s not gonna be a bad change and if not, it’s gonna be a little bit of the same plus a little more wrestling I would say, a little more storytelling which will be great for the business and great for wrestling fans. Yeah, I mean you got so many places you can go now. But two places that really, really stand out are ours and theirs. You have to want one of those two and whatever you do, just make the best of it. If your contract’s up and you’ve had enough with AEW, go, get the f*** out.”
Rhodes is no stranger to ‘jumping ship’ having had multiple spells in both WWE and WCW throughout the 90s.
