Keep the options open. AEW has been a game changer at the top of the wrestling world. While WWE is still the bigger promotion, AEW offers both fans and wrestlers alike another major platform. This is not something you get to see every day and it is great to have another option available. One of the top names in AEW certainly sees things that way, and understands that he has choices.

During a recent interview with SteelChair Wrestling Magazine, Maxwell Jacob Friedman mentioned being open to a move to WWE, though there is nothing to suggest that he is making the jump. Friedman said that he is a businessman who is going to listen to the best offer. He also talked about his plans to win the AEW World Title, along with the rest of his Pinnacle teammates winning titles. There is no word on when Friedman’s AEW contract expires.

Friedman is worth a look. Check out what he can do in the ring:

Opinion: This is something that is probably a long way off in the future, but what matters most is the fact that Friedman seems like he could be interested in moving. While that might be the case, the interesting question is how many more people might be interested in moving from one direction or the other. We haven’t seen the big names up for grabs yet and it could be fascinating to see who goes where eventually.

Will Friedman wind up? Where do you want him to go? Let us know in the comments below.
