In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan. In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
Randy Orton on WWE list of inactive-unavailable stars?
In the last episodes of Monday Night Raw, among the many absences in recent months, a very important one was added, of an athlete who in the last calendar year has literally dragged the entire red roster, especially in the period of the so-called ThunderDome Era.
We are talking about the Legend Killer, also called The Viper: Randy Orton. In the last period, the WWE has preferred to get Randy Orton out of the feud with Bray Wyatt, who has also disappeared from the Monday Night Raw TV screens, to then also get him out of the titled round that counts of the red show, however inserting him in a real team unusual and nice with the former US Champion of the same roster, Matt Riddle.
Apparently, in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania, Orton would have asked the management of the company to take a break, but that break would never have come until now, so it is possible that the management has been waiting for the new developments and the new implications of the storyline.
with Matt Riddle, in order to get his Legend Killer out of the picture for a while. After the last segments he had with Riddle on Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton would literally disappear into thin air, with the storyline carried out by his teammate that led him to confide even in front of the cameras that he had called the police for the disappearance of the partner.
According to reports in the last few hours by several very important online sites, Orton would have been inserted by WWE, internally, in the list of unavailable or inactive Superstars at the moment, which means that even if there should be a problem or an emergency , Orton cannot be called to replace a colleague, as often happens in live events or even in TV tapings.
Furthermore, as confirmed by the well-known overseas podcast, the Fightful Select, it would seem that the return of Randy Orton is much closer than it seems, with the date of the fateful reappearance on Raw which could be that of August 2nd.
Here is what was reported by journalists from overseas: "We have not been told anything about the problems between Orton and the company and the hope is that both sides will work together again in time for next August 2 in the weekly episode of Raw." Probably in the coming weeks we will have further info about Randy Orton and his eventual come back.
