As the wrestling industry continues to evolve at such a rapid pace we are witnessing promotions to work together more than ever before. As we continue to progress through this new era in our business many companies are beginning to change their outlook on rival companies.
WWE has always had a strict policy for non cross brand appearances for their SuperStars. As we’ve seen with the recent Mickie James Royal Rumble announcement and also the fact that WWE is discussing using AEW stars for upcoming documentaries, WWE is slowly to change their viewpoint on working with other promotions.
WWE and AEW previously came to an agreement to allow Chris Jericho to appear on the Stone Cold Podcast “Broken Skull Sessions” in 2021 following night 2 of WrestleMania 37.
It was then that communication began between WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and AEW CEO Tony Khan. These discussion were encouraged by Chris Jericho to finally bring a closer working relationship between WWE & AEW.
The most recent discussions have been for Chris Jericho to possibly appear at the 2022 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. As WWE and AEW work in the finer details of a closer working relationship it will be Intresting to see what this development leads to and if the two can truly co-exists. For the benefit of the fans we hope they do.
