With Triple H now in charge of WWE creative, he has brought back several stars including Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, and Dexter Lumis. He has also made several changes to the product.
While speaking at Terrificon 2022 (video via Fandom Spotlite) Dustin Rhodes recently gave his thoughts on the idea that there could be certain AEW stars go back to WWE because Triple H is now in creative instead of Vince McMahon after he resigned.
AEW President Tony Khan previously commented on this and thought the change in WWE is a good thing. He also confirmed that he has long-term deals with Adam Cole and Malakai Black, two top NXT stars while Triple H was in charge of the brand.
Recently, Andrade El Idolo and Miro seemingly expressed their frustration with being given less television time than when they were with WWE. For Rhodes, he thinks if wrestlers are upset in AEW, then they should leave.
“Did you see [Tony Khan’s] interview? Yeah, I mean you got the few that just left there [WWE] that are under five-year deals, right? So we got ‘em for a while. They’re not just gonna up and leave, you can’t do that. That’s what a contract is about. As far as anybody else that doesn’t have that deal, hey man, go for it, whatever. I think experience it if you want to. If you don’t like the current atmosphere, that’s a personal issue.
You need to move on. Maybe they’ll do something different with you over there, you know what I mean? I think it’s going to be a change slowly with Triple H at the helm but it’s gonna be a good change, it’s not gonna be a bad change and if not, it’s gonna be a little bit of the same plus a little more wrestling I would say, a little more storytelling which will be great for the business and great for wrestling fans. Yeah, I mean you got so many places you can go now. But two places that really, really stand out are ours and theirs. You have to want one of those two and whatever you do, just make the best of it. If your contract’s up and you’ve had enough with AEW, go, get the f*ck out.”
