WWE Superstar seen backstage at AEW Dynamite this week. Could yet another WWE star jump ship from Vince McMahon’s promotion to Tony Khan’s?
For almost two decades the WWE was the only player in town. It was the summit of professional wrestling in North America and to many, even the world. With the rise of AEW in recent years however, wrestlers now have more choices at the top.
A number of WWE Superstars have moved over to AEW since it’s inception. Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Pac, Miro, Sting, Christian, the list is quite long and notable too. Could yet another name join the list? Is AEW on the verge of bringing in yet another massive talent?

It is not known exactly why the former Intercontinental Champion was present there. Although it is likely he was there to extend his support to fellow Japanese legend, Yuji Nagata.
Nagata was scheduled to face Jon Moxley for the IWGP United States Championship. The two fought a solid hard hitting match to open the show. In the end, it was Moxley who withstood the challenge and retained his championship. Both competitors bowed to each other as a sign of respect after the match.
Update: According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider Nakamura was not on backstage at AEW Dynamite on Wednesday night.
“WWE’s Shinsuke Nakamura was not at Dynamite. Photos of him visiting with New Japan’s Yuji Nagata have floated around, leading to some assuming they were taken at AEW. That was not the case.”
