Hey everyone! It's The Wrestling Classic here with another article for ONE37pm.
At the height of the Monday Night Wars in the 90s between World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation, it was always fun speculating if someone would jump ship to the other company. Tuning into Raw and Nitro, not knowing if you were going to see someone who was recently just on the other program was part of the fun of tuning in. The WWE briefly ignited that same excitement in the early days of the WWE Brand Split between Raw and Smackdown in 2002.
However, we haven’t really had anything like this since maybe the early days of TNA. It was not until the inception of All Elite Wrestling in 2019 that we could potentially find that feeling again. There have been many former WWE superstars and legends that have already made the jump to AEW. In due time there will be homegrown or talent that made their name in AEW make the jump to WWE. That doesn’t mean I expect any of these superstars would show up in the WWE anytime soon but I could definitely see them being a perfect fit in that company.
This shortlist won’t include superstars who already had careers in NXT or WWE but rather wrestlers who never had a prominent role in the company outside of previously being enhancement talent or extras on the show. These are the five AEW wrestlers I think would best fit in the WWE one day if they decided to ever go there. If these five stars decided to stay with AEW forever, I’d be fine with that too but this would be my answer if the question was forced upon me unwillingly.
