Wrestling News: WWE Deny Talks With New AEW-signee

Wrestling News: WWE appears to have denied having talks with a new AEW signee, who made his debut this week on Dynamite.

Kazuchika Okada, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion officially debuted as an All Elite-contracted wrestler this week, aligning himself with The Young Bucks and joining The Elite stable.

According to a new report from Fightful Select, despite WWE’s rumoured interest in the New Japan Pro Wrestling legend, they claim that they did not hold talks with him:

“WWE claims there were no talks between the two sides, though we can confirm with WWE sources that Okada had reached out to WWE talent while weighing his next move, and had considered the possibility in going to WWE. At one point, we’d even heard he’d shown renewed interest in possibly going back in January.”

On top of this, a recent Tokyo Sports article revealed that the AEW deal that Okada had signed was for three years, and roughly $4.5 million per year. Fightful would also confirm those behemoth numbers.
