AEW has been doing an outstanding job since its inception in 2019. They have attempted to provide the alternate product of WWE. The promotion’s President, Tony Khan has been penciling some huge plans and it turns out he is trying to bring in a couple of UFC stars to appear on Rampage.
AEW Rampage will see two UFC stars
There have been rumors that the former WWE star CM Punk could be making his way into the company after he expressed his desire to make a return to the squared circle.
It seems the company has big things planned for Rampage. While speaking Busted Open Radio, President Tony Khan talked about the upcoming plans, and he claimed that the Houston episode of the show will feature two great UFC champions.

He said two former UFC champions will come with Lambert:
”Dan and his guys, the more I talk to them, the more I looked at this. I’m gonna have Dan and his guys come next week. If they want to tear into us, they can tear into us. I gotta address the Rampage premiere. We got a lot of things to do and I know Dan wants to antagonize wrestling and Dan wants to talk about how wrestling used to be better and real men and so forth and I’d love to hear that. He’s gonna bring big backup in the form of not just one UFC Champion but two great UFC Champions. I’m very excited for it. If he wants to say all that, I’m totally game for it but not this week as I got to launch Rampage. We have a lot to do and I told him why don’t you bring your guys to Houston next week? So that’s what we’re gonna do. Dan’s gonna come to Houston. I’ll give him the time to say what he wants to say. By then I think Rampage will have been established, we will have entered the Rampage era.”
We will see which UFC stars are headed to Tony Khan’s company.
