I’d be interested. WWE and AEW have a tendency to dominate the wrestling landscape and it is easy to understand why. They have the most money, the biggest platforms and the strongest followings, at least in North America. That is the kind of thing that is going to be hard to top, but it does not mean that they are the only game in town. There are other promotions out there and the two major companies are interested in a wrestler from one of them.
Major League Wrestling (MLW) is one of the better independent promotions out there and a lot of that is due to the talent. The wrestlers are all rather talented and they are able to go out on a national stage and showcase themselves to a large audience. That is something that can be very valuable elsewhere, and now one of their stars has drawn interest from WWE and AEW.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, both WWE and AEW are interested in MLW’s Davey Boy Smith Jr. Smith was a guest at Chris Jericho’s Halloween party and spoke with AEW President Tony Khan, though the discussion was not business related. WWE is also interested in Smith, who wrestled for them from 2006-2011, though he did appear on an episode of the Bump earlier this year. Smith’s MLW contract expires on December 18 and it is not clear where he wants to go.
Can you blame them for being interested? Check out Smith in the ring:
Opinion: I’m not sure where Smith is going to wind up but it is easy to see why so many companies would be interested in him. He is part of one of the most famous and successful wrestling families of all time and is quite the talent in his own right. I could go for seeing him in multiple promotions and good for him for having so many potential suitors. Smith could go to a bunch of different places and that is a nice situation to be in.
Where do you want Smith to wind up? Where will he wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
