Rocky Johnson Says He’s Had Talks With AEW

Rocky Johnson was recently the guest on the WINCLY Podcast. During the show Johnson mentioned he had talked to AEW about working for them.

“It was great working with Dusty. We were tag champs in Florida and we switched back and forth with the heavyweight belt. Now that his son has a chance with this Elite Wrestling, they have the capital and everything. I had talked with them and probably could have worked with them, but I’m not interested anymore.”

“But, the point is, that no matter how much money you’ve got, if you don’t have talent then you’re not gonna draw. But they are smart enough in that they are getting these independents and are opening a school where they’re gonna develop their own talent.”

“I think it’s gonna be good, the wrestling wars because it’s gonna be good for the guys. But I think a lot of them are gonna jump ship from WWE.”
