AEW star reveals WWE reached out following AEW Dark appearance

Last updated

AEW star Anthony Bowens recently appeared on the AEW Unrestricted podcast. The Acclaimed member discussed several topics during his time on the show, including the reveal of WWE reaching out to him after he appeared on AEW Dynamite.

‘So I never really went into specifics about what technically happened. I did the Dark match, and the next day, I was approached by  NXT about coming down there, after they ghosted me for three years,’ Bowens began.

‘I didn’t hear anything back from AEW directly after the match because sometimes Dark airs about a week or two afterwards, or at least in the pandemic world, and I just said yes and somehow that trickled back to Tony Khan. Tony found out about it, and then brought me down there the week later” Bowens continued.

‘I had a long conversation with him and my tag team partner, and the next thing you know, I’m with AEW, which is where I wanted to be in the first place. There’s a ton of life happenings in there that made the decision a lot easier, but there was a very anxiety-filled two weeks.

Honestly, being in a great situation, I guess, where every wrestler wants to be in but it was one of the most anxiety-induced two weeks I’ve ever had in my life, but I made the right decision, and I’m so excited to be in AEW’ Anthony Bowens concluded.

Here’s the current and updated card for this week’s episode of AEW Rampage; which will be available on TNT Network in the United States and on FITE TV in Europe and the United Kingdom.
