Why hasn't Teddy Long ever worked for AEW, playa?
The former WWE SmackDown General Manager answered this question during his recent appearance on the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast.
While speaking with show host Nick Hausman for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling, Theodore R. Long explained that he heard rumblings of his age being the reason why AEW has no interest in bringing him in to work for the company.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where Teddy Long touches on this particular topic.
"I don’t really get the chance to watch much AEW. They told me… I got word that I was too old to be over there [laughs]. If you take a look at that [AEW product], I don’t know how they could say that. But I’m just saying what I’m saying. Again, that’s what I was told [by AEW]. I basically try to devote all my time to SWE."
