Report: WWE superstars apparently jealous of AEW’s booking of Jake Hager

Jake Hager has been booked as a force to be reckoned with in AEW so far. He was the surprise at the end of AEW’s debut show. He is billed as an undefeated Bellator fighter instead of a former WWE superstar.

According to a report by Wrestling News, some WWE superstars are envious of the way Hager has been booked in AEW so far.

[One Superstar reportedly said]

“I know he just started and he hasn’t done a whole lot with them yet but [Jack] Swagger is already a bigger deal with them than he was when he was here.”

“They talk him up as a MMA badass instead of an ex-WWE guy and that’s smart of them to do. And they have done so much to get over those younger guys. There’s something about the way everyone is presented that is appealing.”

We wonder how well Hager will be booked in AEW as time goes on. He has an upcoming fight at Bellator soon and his booking will depend on his success in the fight.

    He’s a bigger deal in a much smaller company. Context is important.

    And what did he come out to again last night? We the people.
    You know, that dead gimmick that sucked and was written by bad creative.
    Really does make him look lilke a tool.

    What a lie nobody in WWE feels threaten by anything happening in AEW.

    I don’t hear jealousy in that statement…

  • Keith Learmonth

    Imagine being jealous of a dude who is literally a glorified bodyguard for a guy who can’t even get his name right, and stripped him of the one thing that actually got him over with crowds in the past…

    Harrison, your articles are reading like really bad Yahoo “sponsored ads”. Give your articles a break already. They’re badly written, never proofread, full of hyperbole, fake news and never make sense. Quit with your “gossip”.

    The guy has done absolutely nothing so far in AEW, and did anyone actually miss him this week when the Inner Circle appeared?
    I really do not think he is that big of a deal in AEW right now, and going on about being undefeated in MMA after only two matches in two years, is hardly something that puts him over either (just ask about Michael Cole being undefeated at WrestleMania). Plus if he loses his upcoming match, thats gonna be some serious egg on face.
    They should have debuted him after that match, not before.
