Next month will likely be a huge month for professional wrestling news. Several top stars from both Ring Of Honor (ROH) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) are set to become free agents in January 2019. The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Kenny Omega amongst others will be hitting the open market and are looking for a new home. All four men have been linked to Jacksonville Jaguars owner Tony Khan’s new startup promotion, All Elite Wrestling.
In fact, Cody Rhodes recently said he turned down a WWE offer. So with that being said, WWE will have to shift their focus to other free agents to bring in for 2019. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that one star WWE has their eye on is former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle. Meltzer also said Karen Q is on WWE’s radar. One reason for the interest in Karen Q is because WWE is planning to open a Performance Center in China.
Q happens to be a Chinese-American, and WWE would like to sign more Chinese stars. Karen Q recently participated in WWE’s second Mae Young Classic tournament. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
How do you feel about Castle and Karen Q possibly coming to WWE?
