Exclusive: Update On Former WWE/TNA Star’s Future, Possible Return

Many sites are citing The Wrestling Observer newsletter as the source of this report, but it's unclear if this is a new development or a case of sites recycling old news that has since been taken out of context.

The new reports claim Triple H is not interested in Matt Morgan due to the recent development of the Performance Center and WWE's current plan to focus on young, developmental talent, rather than bringing in former stars. While there's no denying that Triple H, Vince, and other top officials are determined to utilize the new Orlando facility to the fullest extent, the comments from Triple H being used in these reports are not new, nor are they being used accurately.

Back in August, we reported a story from PWInsider claiming WWE had "zero" interest in TNA stars at that time. It was around this time that Triple H also made those remarks about the new Performance Center and WWE's focus on developing young stars. However, Matt Morgan was never mentioned or named in that conversation, and it's been told to me that Hunter was referring more to the "TNA originals" when he made those comments, as opposed to former WWE stars possibly making a return.

I was told by two sources today within WWE that they are still interested in Matt Morgan, and that it's more "a matter of when, not if" he'll return to WWE. 

Additionally, I was told that WWE still has little-to-no interest in other TNA talent like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and even Bobby Roode. Sting, however, as we reported last month, is definitely on WWE's radar.
