The Man took to Twitter soon after and responded to the tweet, stating that the report is false. Lynch added that she hasn’t “signed anything new in years”, but a deal is coming up soon.
Interestingly, the response garnered a reply from former WWE Superstar and current All Elite Wrestling star, Shawn Spears. The former Tye Dillinger seemed happy that the report wasn’t true, and added that $1 million seems too low. Spears added a hashtag to finish off the tweet, and it looks like he wants WWE to pay Lynch a lot more than $1 million a year. Check out the tweets below:

Spears’ reply was met with an incredibly positive response from fans, who agreed with him on the tweet. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Lynch the most over babyface of WWE at the moment. Her mega push kicked off soon after SummerSlam 2018, and culminated at WrestleMania 35, where she won the first-ever Women’s main event in the show’s history.
Lynch went on to land WWE 2K20’s cover alongside Roman Reigns, and bagged several other accomplishments. Nine months after she won the RAW Women’s title at The Show of Shows, Lynch is still holding the belt.
WWE doesn’t release very many people anymore, but they recently cut a few Superstars loose. Luke Harper was let go from WWE months after he requested his release from the company. Now he’s Brodie Lee once again and showing up at hockey games with Sammy Guevara.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed Brodie Lee’s current situation. The former Luke Harper could have some options available for him, but AEW seems like the logical choice at this time.
“I have assumed from further back than I should probably say that he’s going to end up in AEW. I don’t know that. I just read the tea leaves because I know he’s underutilized in WWE and then Vince pretty much, you know. I mean Vince pretty much buried him in April.”
“He went public about wanting to get out and I asked people in the company and one of them told me flat-out ‘He’s making the right move. Vince just doesn’t see it in him. He might be the only one who doesn’t see it in him so he needs to leave.’”
Meltzer said for a guy like Brodie Lee leaving WWE his options seem to be AEW or New Japan Pro Wrestling. AEW needs big men and Brodie Lee could be a perfect fit.
Jon Moxley was able to do both which Brodie Lee might be able to do as well. If AEW has a working relationship with NJPW that could definitely make things easier.
