Billy Gunn says AEW reached out to Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman

Sean Waltman is reportedly training for an in-ring return and some wouldn't be surprised to see that take place in AEW. 

Speculation regarding Waltman and AEW started following an interview Billy Gunn gave to Sportskeeda on Sunday. Gunn told the outlet that AEW has reached out to Waltman previously about coming in. 

Our own Dave Meltzer would later clarify that there were discussions between Waltman and AEW in May and October of 2022 but nothing recently. 

Gunn said:

I think we’ve tried to get Sean in here a couple of times. Things just didn’t work out but I think, if the time’s right, I think he would be a great asset because he still has huge popularity and everybody knows him and he’s such a good guy that he would not only help the younger talent as well as be a good representative for our company and he'd be amazing if we could get him here.

According to a report from Nick Hausman, sources close to Waltman "would not be surprised" to see him end up in AEW at some point. However, it was noted that Waltman is not interested in only doing a one-off with the promotion.

Waltman is in the process of getting back into ring shape and those close to him told us they would not be surprised if he showed up in AEW.

Waltman hasn't wrestled since working a couple of matches with GCW in early 2022. He teamed with Joey Janela and defeated Brian Myers & Matt Cardona at Welcome to Heartbreak on February 25, 2022. He then was defeated by Janela the following month at Spring Break 6 in a match that Waltman worked with a torn biceps.
