At the moment, AEW is dominating the wrestling world. CM Punk and Bryan Danielson, former main-event WWE superstars, have drawn admirers worldwide to AEW and made new fans. Many wrestlers are now performing there as an alternative to WWE. Tony Khan has also brought former WWE stars to AEW, including Malakai Black, Miro, Christian Cage, Paul Wight, and Andrade. So here are five WWE stars we don’t think should join AEW.
Becky Lynch should not go to AEW
Since making her WWE debut on the NXT in June 2014, The Man has been working her way up the ranks ever since. WWE made The Man’s NXT debut in June 2014, so she has worked up the ranks in the meantime. Her position as the defending SmackDown Women’s Champion and the RAW Women’s Champion has made Becky Lynch one of WWE’s most valuable assets. Her outspoken nature and confident demeanor add a whole new dynamic to WWE television.
Becky is just on an entirely different level when compared to the other ladies on WWE television and the women’s roster at AEW. Becky made her triumphant return to the Summer Slam in 2021 after taking time off during pregnancy throughout 2020. As a result, Lynch captured her fourth SmackDown Women’s Championship within seconds against Bianca Belair.
The man spoke with the New York Daily News to discuss her return:
“I just did what an intelligent person would do. If you haven’t been wrestling in a long time, then you’ve been strategizing. You’ve been strategizing because you haven’t been in the ring with this person, so then you are going to do something different. You’re going to catch them off guard. And now suddenly I’m the bad guy because I came back even better than ever? I don’t really understand this talk about me being a heel. I haven’t changed. I just got smarter,” said Becky Lynch
According to Becky, after her WrestleMania match, where she achieved Wakley 2 Belts, she had a conversation with Vince after the match:
Baron Corbin should not go to AEW
The WWE Universe would certainly boo Baron Corbin if he ever joined AEW. The WWE Universe has certainly become a fan of Corbin, and he always generates a reaction from the WWE Universe. He runs with any role he is given and makes it work no matter what it is.
Despite his heat magnet status, though, he consistently delivers great work for WWE. WWE trusts him so much that they have even placed him in prominent roles. (Remember when he was beaten up by The Rock and Becky Lynch on the first SmackDown on Fox?).
It is unlikely that AEW would treat him as well as WWE does. With the stacked roster AEW has built, Corbin may end up at the bottom of the pecking order. Here’s to Happy Corbin in WWE!
Charlotte Flair should not go to AEW
She has won fifteen WWE championships, making her one of the most decorated superstars in WWE history. Initially, her father, Ric, was part of her wrestling family, but recently parted ways. She grew up under Triple H’s guidance in NXT.
Following the departure of Charlotte’s partner, Andrade, from WWE, and the departure of Charlotte’s father from WWE, many have speculated about Charlotte’s future. Her accomplishments at WWE seem endless, as everyone adores her.
Vince McMahon’s company should undoubtedly continue the legacy that she’s built so far.
Edge should not go to AEW
There was even talk that Edge would join AEW before he made his return to the Royal Rumble in 2019. The WWE had even cleared him to compete in order that he would not join AEW.
During a conversation with MCW cast members, Matt Hardy suggested that this was the case:
“That was one of those things too. I think if they [WWE] hadn’t had cleared Edge and let him wrestle, he was going to end up at AEW. So they kind of had to go, ‘Oh. If we don’t want him to go, we have to let him have his way,” said Matt Hardy
The WWE Universe adores Edge, a member of WWE’s Hall of Fame. It has now been decided that The Rated R Superstar can compete while competing with a reduced schedule. The deal is perfect for him, and he will participate in more dream matches.
Seth Rollins should not go to AEW
If Seth Rollins joins AEW, we’d love to see a lot of dream matches. Drip King is a pro – WWE and is firmly attached to the company. WWE is the world’s best wrestling company, and Rollins has always been a proponent of the company on social media.
The roster is stacked and this will undoubtedly hinder the chances of plenty of superstars who want to compete at the top level. There will be plenty of matchups for him, but what is to say he won’t get lost in the shuffle?
There’s no reason he should leave WWE, he’s a main-event player and is considered a stalwart.
