Brock Lesnar AEW: Why isn’t he signed to the company?

Last updated

Brock Lesnar is currently contracted to WWE, and it’s looking like he won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

In Brock’s own words, WWE would do anything to keep him, and even if he isn’t signed to the company, Vince McMahon personally would do anything to keep him.

AEW has a reputation for treating ‘homegrown stars’ well. The company has signed MJF, Lee Johnson, and Will Hobbs as well as tag teams like Private Party and Top Flight.

The company also has an excellent history of signing independent talents. So why wouldn’t Brock Lesnar sign with AEW? The truth is, it’s because Vince McMahon wants Lesnar and the feeling appears to be mutual.

It’s true that AEW CEO Tony Khan is worth $7 billion and can afford to pay Brock a fortune, but Lesnar appears to be locked down with WWE for some time now.

If Brock Lesnar were to sign with AEW, he would command a much higher salary than any other member of the AEW roster.

While it may be unlikely that he’ll sign with a new company, AEW could still remain a viable option for Lesnar at some point in the future when his current contract is up with WWE.

Why Brock Lesnar Isn’t With AEW

The world-renowned star would be a great addition to the AEW roster, but why isn’t he signed to AEW? Without a doubt, AEW is somewhere that would hugely benefit from having a star the calibre of Lesnar. But, what would the company do with him?

AEW has already signed the likes of CM Punk and Bryan Danielson, so big name draws are not out of the question when it comes to All Elite’s hiring practices.

Another rumour is that at one point Brock WAS considering signing with AEW before he signed his most recent WWE contract, but he looks set to be a WWE Superstar for some time going forward.
