This is only a rumor, so take it for what it’s worth. According to Andrew Zarian of the “We’re Live, Pal” podcast, Triple H is considering bringing back Jonah, who was known as Bronson Reed, to WWE.
Zarian said the following:
“I’ve heard one name over the last few weeks, and that’s Jonah. Great G1 [Climax], I talked to a friend over there casually in Connecticut…he’s a name. Bronson Reed got the shit end of the stick with his positioning. He’s very good, he has the size, he had this awesome entrance with the background. I don’t know him at all personally. I don’t know if anything behind the scenes that happened, anything beyond that, but I can tell you there are people very interested in him because of his talent, his performance in the G1. He’s a name that people are interested in. I don’t know what his deal is, but he has come up as a name that I’ve heard.”
Jonah was released on August 6, 2021, from his WWE contract in a move that was quite shocking to many people.

This would be a terrific move for WWE. I always felt that Reed was gaining incredible momentum in NXT before he was unceremoniously released from his contract. Adding him to the roster, along with the other talent that Triple H is bringing back, will continue to give brand new life to the company and allow them to ascend to Heights they haven’t seen in a long time.
