5 former WWE stars who want to return
WWE recently announced its annual budget cuts and was forced to release several main roster talents. Every year the company has a talent cull which leaves several former WWE Superstars in a position where they are forced to re-evaluate their future.
Over the years, several WWE Superstars have been released from the company, but there are many who don’t hold any ill will for the decision and are open to a return.
Many have cut all ties with WWE and made it clear that they won’t walk through that curtain for the company ever again. However, there are others who are much more optimistic about returning in the future, if only for a one-off match.
The following list looks at just five former WWE Superstars who are open to making a return to Vince McMahon’s company in the future.
#5 Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley
Dean Ambrose wasn’t released from WWE. Instead, the former WWE Champion decided to allow his contract to expire before moving on to a career in AEW.
Ambrose has been one of the biggest stars to walk away from the company in recent years. Even though he has been quite outspoken about his time in WWE since his departure back in 2019, he would still be open to returning.
Ambrose spoke to Bleacher Report back in January where he was asked about doing business with WWE again. The star, now known as Jon Moxley, revealed that he wouldn’t rule it out.
“You gotta say never say never, because you don’t want to run back what you said years later because you don’t know what’ll happen. Just the creation of AEW was so vital to the wrestling industry, and that’s part of the reason why I’m so proud to be a part of it. I wouldn’t rule out ever doing business with them again, we had a mutually beneficial relationship for a long time.”
Ambrose has been part of AEW as Jon Moxley since 2019 and is one of the company’s most popular stars. However, he’s still a WWE fan favorite and would definitely be welcomed back by the WWE Universe.
