Report: Former WWE Stars Reluctant To Lose In AEW

Former WWE talents don't want to do the job in AEW

A lot of former WWE stars who have jumped ship to All Elite Wrestling are reportedly reluctant to lose in Tony Khan's promotion. 

Speaking more about Miro turning down a match at AEW Full Gear, Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio

"It's weird, a lot of people who come from WWE are very leery, obviously, Bryan Danielson being the exception, about doing jobs. Then it becomes very difficult to book when you don't really want to do programmes where you are going to lose."

Miro has been off AEW TV since September's All Out pay-per-view. AEW reportedly pitched creative plans to Miro that would have seen The Redeemer wrestle at Full Gear in November. Miro turned down those plans, though, and both sides are working together on creative that will bring the former TNT Champion back to TV. 

Miro is under contract with All Elite Wrestling until 2026 but his wife CJ Perry (FKA Lana) recently admitted she thinks Miro will return to WWE at some point in the future.
