During the C2E2 event in Chicago this weekend, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega were part of the AEW Discussion Panel. During the discussion, they revealed the wrestlers from the WWE that they would most want in AEW. Here’s what they had to say:
Female-wise, obviously, I want Candice LeRae,” Matt began. “[For male], this is a safe answer because he just re-signed, AJ Styles.
“Candice for sure would be the goal,” Nick added, “and I’ll go with Kevin Owens.”
“There are a ton of fantasy matches that sometimes you just won’t be able to see because worlds can’t, or won’t, collide,” Omega explained. “I still do believe in a future where they will [collide]. I’m crazy that way. For a female superstar, this is going to be a little biased on this one. This is something that came off the top of my head because I think she’s very talented but also a very kind soul, and that’s Kairi Sane…For the male, I don’t want any repeats. Everyone knows that I wanted AJ, I want him bad. But man, I’ve wanted to work more in-depth, and I guess it’s not one guy, but I really want to work more with New Day.”
“If we’re talking about fantasy opponents and all that, I don’t know, I really want to wrestle guys like John Cena or Seth Rollins,” Kenny said. “These guys that have got a little bit of chip on their shoulder. And I don’t mean that I want to show that I’m better or anything, I just want to work with these alpha-male-type dudes, ya know? I want to work with guys that really think that they’re the best: guys that have shown that they maybe are in the conversation for being the best. I think that makes magic.”
“I wish [we were signing CM Punk],” Nick said.
“I love CM Punk,” Matt continued. “I think [whether or not he’s signing] may be better to ask him.”
