Jon Moxley (formerly known as Dean Ambrose) is currently an AEW star. He is the reigning Interim AEW World Champion but who knows, he might end up returning to WWE. Pro wrestling has seen some shocking moments over the years and recently Vince McMahon grabbed the headlines when he announced his retirement at 77. He announced that he is retiring from his roles as Chairman and CEO of WWE. It was later clarified that he was also done with his work on creative. As of now Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan are Co-CEOs of WWE, while Triple H is EVP of Talent Relations.
Triple H might sign Jon Moxley back
It has been reported that ‘The Game’ might sign some top AEW stars down the road including top names like Jon Moxley. According to PWTorch.com, ‘The Death Rider’ might consider returning to WWE as his issues were with Vince. Now that Vince has departed, Mox could make his comeback to WWE.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked if Hunter plans to go after any of those top AEW star:
“Put it this way. If he thinks he can get them, of course! Of course! I mean, even if Vince was there, the idea of taking guys of that level, they would absolutely go for it. Would it be the right move for either of those three people? That’s something that they would have to judge.”
Meltzer noted that The Young Bucks have a year and a half left on their deals. Kenny Omega has about six months remaining. When Triple H was in charge of NXT, he was able to attract the top independent wrestling talent from around the world. Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Shinsuke Nakamura, Samoa Joe, Adam Cole, and a plethora of other huge names were brought into the WWE fold that many fans would have never expected.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez also gave a very good example of how a wrestler could change their mind after speaking in absolutes. There is no evidence that he is interested or thinking about leaving AEW, Alvarez used Darby Allin as an example.
“We had an interview with Darby Allin on the Jericho Cruise and he made it abundantly clear that he would never, ever consider, not for one second, going to NXT. And the reality is, he was right. I mean, his size, there was virtually zero chance that he would ever have any chance whatsoever on the main roster.
But, if Triple H ends up the head of talent relations and he ends up with power in booking, and you look at what he did when he had NXT, I mean, I certainly would not leave today if I were Darby if my contract were up today. But a year from now? I mean, if you’re seeing all shapes and sizes getting pushed on WWE television, I mean, I would think about it and I absolutely would not think about it if Vince McMahon were still in charge of the main roster, and I don’t think he’s the only guy.”
