He would know. There have been all kinds of stories surfacing over the last few weeks involving wrestlers possibly jumping from one promotion to another. This has created some issues as there are all kinds of rumors and possible stories out there, plus varying sources on every story. The best option is to hear it from the wrestlers themselves, and that is the case again.

One of the stories involving wrestlers jumping from one promotion to another involves Bobby Fish, who has just left AEW, attempting to get Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole to join him in a jump back to WWE. Fish addressed the story on the latest edition of his Undisputed podcast, saying that the story was “totally fabricated information”. Fish went on to say that he was disappointed that so many outlets, including Jim Cornette, carried the story. Since leaving AEW, Fish has debuted for Impact Wrestling.

Here are some of Fish’s comments, with transcription courtesy of 411mania.com:

On The Rumors Of A Potential Jump To WWE

“Guess what boys, after over 25 years or something like that in the wrestling business, I don’t know how contracts work myself. I guess what was most troublesome and amusing at the same time to me was how many outlets picked up on what was…because if there’s anybody who knows that it’s totally fabricated information, it would be me, Adam, Kyle, Hunter, like the people that it’s talking about, who didn’t do any of the things. So none of it is real. Even people like Jim Cornette picked it up and commented on it. And Jim and I always had a great relationship. If I’m being honest, Jim hurt my feelings a little bit by believing some bullshit about me so easily. But yeah, I mean it is what it is, but that’s what sucks the most about it. The people that write this stuff, there is no checks and balances, there are no ramifications when you are in the wrong. Therefore, they continue to write whatever it is they’re going to write and it gets picked up by whomever. The fact or fiction line doesn’t matter and the whole thing is absurd.”

On Fans Who Believed The Story

“Unless the consumer wants to be lied to. And maybe some of you fans want to be lied to and if that’s the case, cool, but don’t be so passionate about it. We don’t have a whole lot of room left in this world for any more hate, toxic bullshit. And when you’ve got a journalist that’s coming out doing what that guy did and then Dave Meltzer co-signing it…and Dave knows he’s got a pretty trusted voice. Some people love him, some people hate him, whatever it is. But, c’mon man. Do better.”

And On AEW Declaring The Story Untrue

“I appreciate the fact that AEW did what they did. And it is no favor to me, it’s just the truth. There is no favor needed by anybody in any of this.”

Opinion: This is a situation where Fish would know better than anyone else and I’ll take him at his word that it didn’t happen. It is the kind of story that is easy to believe and I believed it myself. I was never sure how exactly it would have worked as there are a lot of contract details that prevent something like that from happening, but it was certainly an intriguing story on paper.
