It had been rumored for All In, but is Dennis Rodman heading to All Out instead?
The gritty former NBA star was a Chicago mainstay during the Bulls glory years. Now he will get to appear for AEW in his old stomping grounds.
Depending on who you read, there were rumors that the man known as The Worm was invited to be at Wembley and that he had declined.
Perhaps he did decline for All In, but that is not the case for Saturday’s Collision.
And with Collision and All Out both happening in Chicago this weekend, we ask…
Dennis Rodman Heading To All Out?
AEW confirmed the move via their own official Twitter account.
Rodman was one of the best defensive players of his generation, but he also did work a number of matches in WCW.
The crazy personality, who has befriended eccentric North Korea dictator Kim Jung Un, is 62 now.
So, maybe we don’t see him work a match for AEW…but we’ve seen plenty of grizzled veterans pop up in All Elite Wrestling.
One more might not be out of the question.
Whether he makes it to Sunday’s All Out remains to be seen, but we know where he will be on Saturday…and Collision could set up an awful lot.
It seems likely that AEW is aiming for a positive local pop for the member of several championship Bulls teams.
That much seems reasonable to expect.
But, with their second big PPV in the span of a week looming, there are surely slots on that dance card itching to be filled.
Could we see Rodman work with or against some notable names on the AEW roster?
If I were a betting man…and I am not…but if I were…I would say the odds of Dennis Rodman appearing in some form or fashion Sunday are probably pretty good.
