With new promotion All Elite Wrestling making waves, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com has commented on WWE stars being interested in jumping ship and how the company is handling the situation:
“It’s weird because WWE is pushing a lot of guys, a few guys, Andrade and [The Revival] to a degree because they don’t want to lose them. They don’t want people unhappy, they don’t want people to leave. They don’t want the word out that lots of people want to leave. Especially they don’t want the word out that people want to go to AEW.”
There were also rumors previously that “The Boss” Sasha Banks was upset with the way she was being used and that this has contributed to her latest push and eventual match with Ronda Rousey at Royal Rumble.
“Yeah, well Sasha’s another one. I mean here’s the thing. WWE even though they have endless hours of television, they really do have a lot of people on the roster and everyone’s good.”
Banks’ herself also contributed to the rumor mill with these Twitter interactions:
