After decades of WWE dominating the wrestling landscape, there is a secondary option around.

Over the last year, AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman has talked about “The Bidding War Of 2024”, when he will be a free agent, available to sign with WWE or re-sign with AEW. According to Fightful Select, a WWE talent said Friedman told them that he was “looking forward to being there in 2024”, meaning WWE. At the same time, the talent said that it should be taken with a grain of salt. Other talented have also said Friedman has made similar statements. There is no word on when Friedman’s AEW deal officially expires.

Opinion: This is the definition of “I’ll believe it when I see it”. Friedman seems like someone who would love to mess with everyone’s expectations before having a big moment where he returns to AEW. There is always the chance, but I would be surprised if Friedman leaves AEW when his contract is up. Either way, one company is going to have a very talented star and that could make for some great moments.
Where do you think Friedman will sign? Where do you want him to sign? Let us know in the comments below.
