During today's Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said that he does not believe that former WWE star Bray Wyatt will be signing with AEW. Earlier today, Dave Meltzer said that Wyatt is not likely to appear tonight on AEW Dynamite.
Alvarez said the following on Wrestling Observer Live:
"As far as the former Bray Wyatt goes, I mentioned weeks ago that I do not believe that the former Bray Wyatt is going to AEW. If you asked me, this is not confirmed because nothing is confirmed until somebody signs somewhere. The impression I have is it is more likely that he is going to Impact Wrestling. But here's the deal, anything is possible. I believe 100 percent that when we do this show tomorrow, I will alert you that he was not on the show because I, like 99 percent believe that he is not going to be on the show tonight. Now if somehow he negotiated an early release from his [WWE] contract, even if he signs with Impact ultimately or whatever - is it impossible that he will make an appearance on the show tonight as part of this tribute show for Brodie Lee? No, it's not impossible but I don't think it's happening. I don't think that he is going to be signing with AEW. I know there's a lot of rumors out there..."
Another name that seems more likely to sign with Impact is Braun Strowman (Adam "Titan" Scherr). Scott D'Amore hinted a couple of weeks ago that Strowman might be headed to Impact soon. If Wyatt and Strowman are signed then it would make sense to hold off on their debut until Bound For Glory in Las Vegas.
Alvarez said today on WOL that his gut tells him that Strowman is not likely going to be signed by AEW.
