Wrestling promotions compete with each other all the time! They try to sign the best wrestlers to deliver a product that the fans will like. WWE wrestlers usually have a huge fan following. They have the ability to attract fans in a smaller wrestling promotion if they join it.
It is important for a wrestling promotion to sign wrestlers that are famous, so people will come to watch them! For a long time, the WWE has ruled the wrestling industry. They currently have some of the best wrestlers of the world signed with them.
They offer their wrestlers a good pay and smaller wrestling promotions can’t do that. With the arrival of All Elite Wrestling, that may not be the case anymore. Goldust is a long-time WWE employee and is one of the most bizarre characters the WWE has ever signed.
He is still signed with the WWE and works backstage as well. He spoke about the arrival of All Elite Wrestling with Sport Illustrated and how it is good for the WWE. “You need places to go and work, competition is great and it is the best thing that can happen for WWE,” said Goldust.
WWE is worried about the arrival of AEW according to some reports. They are trying to re-sign their wrestlers to long term deals in an attempt to lockdown talent.
