What you need to know:
CM Punk is one of the most interesting free agents in wrestling
The world of wrestling is quite strange, because Unlike other sports, there is no preseason, vacation or transfer season here. for AEW and WWE wrestlers.
Basically, the signing season for wrestling companies is a real carnage, because They are aware of the contracts of the characters they are interested in.
Things are interesting here, because technically there are no signings. That is, that WWE has never paid money to take a fighter from any other company and vice versa.
How are transfers carried out in wrestling?
There are many ways for a fighter to go from one company to another, but what has never been seen or is hardly seen, is that the owners of the companies sit down to negotiate some transfer.
And it’s not that they don’t sit together to negotiate because they don’t want to, but because it’s not customary to do that and on top of that, There is a great rivalry between companies to be noble with direct competition.
So, what is popular in wrestling, at least with WWE, AEW, the defunct WCW, TNA, NJPW and thousands of companies, is waiting for the fighters’ contracts to end.
Buuuut, here is a big controversy, because even before these contracts ended, Some companies tempt athletes from before with offers for their companies.
That is why the rivalry between the owners of the companies and the zero possibility that at some point they will sit down to negotiate for transfers of fighters or collaborations.
