3 AEW wrestlers who can make big in WWE

WWE has been the breeding ground of some serious talent all along and yet one can’t deny that AEW has done some fine job too in spotting talents all across the world and bringing them onto a bigger brand than ever. Of course they have found majority of their talents from WWE but then with that being said, a few that arrived directly to AEW have also been quite big.

With the arrival of Jade Cargill to WWE and the return of CM Punk, the most obvious speculation is whether there are more wrestlers in AEW who can make their way to WWE and thrive there? It is all about the gimmicks and the storytelling that completely changes the course of a wrestler. Here are three wrestlers who can come from AEW and thrive in WWE.

#1 Killswitch

Not entirely would this be an arrival to WWE if that happens but Austin Matelson started his wrestling career in 2009 in the Florida Championship Wrestling which is now known as NXT. He was a part of the company until 2014 before he was released by WWE.


After a brief 2-year hiatus, Matelson joined Lucha Underground where he fought under the ring-name Vibora. While he was working with Lucha Underground, he also simultaneously put up shows under independent brands. However, it was in 2019 where he joined 2019 as Luchasaurus and since then it has been a journey to savour. He is a former AEW Tag Team champion and also an AEW TNT champion.

#2 Swerve Strickland

Another former WWE member who could have had a longer run in the company but then somehow the storylines penned for him didn’t get the desired heights. Strickland has worked for major promotions that included the likes of Major League Wrestling, Evolve Wrestling and Combat Zone Wrestling and in all of them have gone onto pick up the title belts.

He was also an important part of the NXT North American Championship where he was delivering under the Hit Row stable. But then as soon as he made his WWE debut under SmackDown, things went downtown and he was released. May be this is time for him that WWE gets hold of a completely different version of him and bring him onboard.


#3 Will Ospreay

The man taking the entire AEW roster by storm, Will’s recent battle against Bryan Danielson was just an ode to the magnificent brilliance that he knits together. Also, he is deemed as one of the finest in-ring wrestlers of the modern era.

Will started off his journey in the independent circuit and then after being recommended by AJ Styles, he joined NJPW. In the process he became a three-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and also won the best of the Super Juniors in 2016 and 2019. He has formerly fought under the ring names of Jason Artem, Dark Britannico, Neo Britannico before coming onto AEW as Will Ospreay.
