That’s what they like. WWE is the biggest and most powerful wrestling promotion in the world but that does not mean they are invincible. At some point, they are going to need to find the new generation to take the reigns from the current stars, some of whom have been around for a very long time. That means a young star could be a priority, and now WWE has someone in their sights.
Earlier this week, a story emerged about Maxwell Jacob Friedman reportedly not being happy with his AEW contract status. There is a chance that Friedman could move over to WWE in 2024 when his current contract expires. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE may consider Friedman, 26 years old, as a “savior superstar” as the company needs young top stars for the future. The way WWE has treated Cody Rhodes upon his return to the company may be a factor as well, as he and Friedman are friends.
Opinion: This is something that very well may wind up happening, but 2024 is an eternity away in wrestling and all kinds of things could change on the way there. Friedman might have changed his mind a dozen times by then or either side might not be as interested as they were before. Either way, it should be interesting, as AEW was always going to lose some top stars at some point and that might be the case again here.
What do you think of Friedman? Where do you want him to sign next? Let us know in the comments below.
