    If it's true then my rant stays. Do you think he had that mentality because of how the talent are basically running the show in AEW? Did he feel like Impact was beneath even a Sammy Guervara to where he didn't feel like doing the job? I mean, I'm already reading shit about how AEW talent kind of had an arrogance to themselves when they should up to do some Impact shows but that could just be bullshit obviously.

    Just seems like a weird hill to die on.
    Bryan Alvarez spoke about this subject during Wrestling Observer Live. He revealed a side of the story that came from someone closer to Sammy Guevara’s side. It seems that Guevara was trying to protect his character and make sense out of things, but Impact Wrestling had their own logic about the situation that they didn’t want altered.

    “Sammy’s side of the story was not that he was going to win three matches on Impact. He would lose a match, he would get beaten down, he would ultimately win a match, and then he would be beaten down afterward.”

    “It was also said that they wanted him to be in tag matches, but he didn’t want to be in tag matches because the whole storyline on Dynamite is that he’s splitting from the Inner Circle and he’s going it alone. Apparently, in his mind it was, ‘If the storyline is that I’m going it alone then why would I go to Impact and do tag matches?’ Apparently, he told people that he was upset with this idea and he wanted to win the X Division Title and then never lose it. He had an idea that involved him winning the X Division Title, but not that he wouldn’t lose it, not that he would go back to AEW, not that he would be stripped or anything, but the point is that they weren’t going for any of these ideas.”
    I do understand him not wanting to work tag matches at impact. That makes no sense.

    I mean, ultimately who the fuck is this kid to even think he has stroke? lol. I did hear on Keeping it 100 that apparently this kid has been trouble in the past working for Konnan and others.

    Has anyone not involved with the Bullet Club from Impact actually kicked anyone's ass from AEW?

    Does it make sense to work tag matches in impact when he just left the inner circle on AEW specifically saying he wanted to be alone?

    I guess it depends on the context of why he would be in a tag-team. The fact the little fucker didn't even show up, we'll never know. He could have been in a tag-team match with another singles guy to further a future 1 on 1 match with whoever they were facing.

    Who was he supposed to team up with? If he was going to Impact to team up with Jericho and be the tag-team champions, sure. But again, nothing happened so we have no clue what they had planned for him. For all we know it was 1 tag-team match.

    I love his alternative idea. Let me win the X division title and then I'll go back to AEW, w/o the belt, and you guys just vacate it and make a new champ. Zero payoff, just something for this mark to go "Hey I was Impact X division champion and never lost it" well yeah, because you think you're somebody. If your show is only getting 6-700k in viewership a week, you ain't shit.

    He was supposed to team with Decay like Black Taurus ended up doing. Black Taurus is a way better fit. Reports said Impact told him not to come after they talked to Tony Kahn, it's not like he no showed. The wording on a lot of the quote gets confusing but it just sounds like he wanted singles matches in the x-divison if he was doing something with impact, which again I feel like makes sense. This quote is very confusing.

    “Sammy’s side of the story was not that he was going to win three matches on Impact. He would lose a match, he would get beaten down, he would ultimately win a match, and then he would be beaten down afterward.”
    It says he would lose a match, get beaten down. Win a match and get beaten down again. A lot of context missing about who would beat him down exactly.

    He had an idea that involved him winning the X Division Title, but not that he wouldn’t lose it, not that he would go back to AEW, not that he would be stripped or anything, but the point is that they weren’t going for any of these ideas.”
    So he wins the title, he would lose it, he wouldn't go back to AEW with it, he wouldn't have to be stripped of it.

    Again the quote could have been a lot clearer instead of just saying not this not that over and over again.

    Yeah the reports are confusing that's why I was like, ok what is actually going on. A lot of my negative outlook on his approach stems from listening to Keeping it 100 talking about Sammy being a pain in the ass so to speak when doing shows for Konnan and other places.

    And again, context is everything. Was it just going to be him randomly teaming up with the Decay, no storyline? Was he going to join the stable? It'll be interesting if we ever get the full details and honestly this is about as much as I'll keep talking about it. I've just been LOLing more than usual about this whole AEW/Impact relationship.

    Loved the Team Taz/Sting & Darby segment. Best thing Sting's been involved in since joining AEW.

    Yeah, by far. I wonder if they were waiting on medical clearance for him to do anything physical all those weeks he literally just came out and stood there

    I'm annoyed at Brian Cage for moving out of the way when Darby was coming down the zipline. He should have took the bump.

    And many others just over the last year or so. If this is what is considered greatness, then it's settled. Nobody gives a shit enough about pro wrestling so just do whatever and hope it works.

    I mean, Mox couldn't even put on his gear he just rolled out of bed, threw on some sweats, and had a 50/50 match with a fucking jobber. But thank God for old ass Sting. He took a powerbomb and it was the biggest news story since Bin Laden was killed.

    That's the weirdest complain i've heard from you, Nash.

    "people enjoyed this segment, so wrestling is shit now" ?

    edit: are you saying that people's expectation are really low?

    If that's the weirdest complaint.....well you have been kind of MIA over the last couple years so it's understandable if THIS was the weirdest lol.

    I'm literally saying that yes, people who enjoyed this segment, among others, means that wrestling is never going to build back up if this is the shit "people" are so into.

    OMG Sting showed up. Dude you're the ninja always cracking on people because of their age and here you are, blowing 65 year old Sting because he could barely drag a 20lbs sack of shit.

    Um, I thought the entire segment was just very well put together. Hook was in the bodybag which distracted Taz. Then Darby ziplines down from the ceiling and takes out Starks and Sting takes on Cage and hits a move we haven't seen him do in years.

    It's a segment where the babyfaces looked smart and played their cards right to even out the 2 vs 4 situation. It was cool and had a lot of thought put into it.


    it's not like goldberg just coming back and beating all the young talent. Sting clearly can't take on guys like Cage or Starks by himself, but if he uses his veteran instinct to outsmart them...well, it works out like it did last night.


    I don't know how that translates into "shit that people are into".

    So it would be ok if Goldberg was teamed up with someone beating all the "young" talent? Fuck Goldberg too. Tony Khan was going to have him re-create the streak in AEW so be thankful for that.

    I guess now Sting can go out on his own terms for the 50th time as he cashes a 7 figure paycheck to stand around like a jerk off. Fuck him and his born again Christian excuses. Joel Olsteen says hi Sting, thanks for the merch.

    And do you know why you haven't seen him do a (horrible) reverse DDT in years? Because according to him he could no longer wrestle, so why would he? Were you marking out when Ricky Morton's crackhead ass did a Canadian Destroyer because we hadn't seen Ricky piledriver anyone let alone flip in decades.

    Even worse. You should've talked about the Scorpion Death Drop that looked 100x better than Stingk with his 2" of air he got on that splash.

    Who do you guys think is the "hall of fame worthy" signing that Paul Wight was talking about? I'm thinking Christian. It's well known Vince undervalues him, a lot of the AEW guys were just on Twitter saying how great he was, and it was always a running joke on the e&c pod about him never going into the hall of fame. I guess we'll see if he gets moved to the alumni section of wwe.com.

    Whoever it is, $200 in internet money says if they showed up on WWE programming people would cry. Seriously. I try to watch AEW and be interactive with fans of the product but I'm starting to feel like Josh Matthews on Tough Enough where he couldn't watch Raw with the other housemates. Why? They're fucking morons.

I guess we'll see if he gets moved to the alumni section of wwe.com.
    Vince just didn't see him as a main eventer. Is that a crime? He had a phenomenal run in WWE and wasn't treated like a jabroni. He was always in the mix, always delivered. I don't see it but if he did good for him getting a huge check. I'd actually be pretty excited to see him wrestle against some people like Kenny Omega, honestly anyone coming from the WWE world that's over 40, the only guy I really care to see them wrestle is Kenny Omega. I've seen them wrestle everyone else I like.

    AEW was great from top to bottom last night. I don't understand Nash's constant cynicism. Super excited for this weekend. Huge UFC card followed by what should be a great PPV.

    I'm just more difficult to please. There's no cynicism. I just don't get over the top with my praise for a show that came across like ECW on TNN.

    Whoever it is, they'll pop AEW a big rating for a week or two and then it will be the same old same old.

    I enjoyed the episode as well. It wasn't spectacular, but i thought it was great.

    Whenever AEW has a huge announcement, it's usually a stinker. "This man is hall of fame worthy," let's hope so.

    Considering Koko B. Ware, Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, and Bushwhacker Luke are in the hall of fame, it could really be anybody.

    ECW on TNN was a show that you would watch and 90% of the matches had no rhyme or reason. You had people coming out still trying to do the anti-WWE promo that by 1999-2000 nobody wanted to hear.

    Last night you have this stupid fucking Shaq stuff and it was the same shit we normally see. Some old dude comes out and beats everyone's ass with ease. Cody bodyslams Shaq I was like, what the fuck? Why? LOL. Dusty Rhodes didn't green light any of this horseshit.

    More nobodies v Lucha Bros in some spot shit that nobody came out looking like anything lol. It was like watching Doring/Roadkill v. Nova/Chetti for the 100th time.

    The press conference was probably the only non-ECW on TNN thing but it was still corny. Anything involving the Young Bucks has been 100% cringe. I feel so bad for MJF and Jericho, well not Jericho fuck that guy. I swear to God when watching this when the Young Bucks started blowing their dad I about slit my throat.

    The 6-man reminded me that Marko Stunt isn't Spike Dudley. The main event was terrible. Like I said, ECW on TNN. The only match that was worth a damn was the Lucha Bros match simply because who doesn't love those guys? That was your RVD/Sabu moment, the only reason people seemed to tune in to ECW on TNN.

    I'm really hoping the sixth guy in the ladder match is Ethan Page.

    Well they've had Snoop Dogg already so I assume with all the Trumpers getting so much camera time it's gotta be Donald Trump.

    Or it'll be someone who is barely in their 40's that isn't in the WWE Hall of Fame. Because as you know, the only hall of fame that apparently matters is Vince's lol.

    I'm going to say it's Trump or Trump Jr. Imagine how many Magas down in FL will turn out for an AEW event if those guys are in the mix.

    If the person Big Show was talking about is under the age of 45 I'll eat my favorite hat. It's a Wolfpac Sting hat that I got from Spencer's back in 1998-1999.

    Most of the matches have storylines involved so I don't know how you can say they're for no rhyme or reason.

    I thought Shaq was going to be shit but he actually did really good. Not Pat Mcafee good, but good. Jade Cargill also looks like a star, just keep her off the mic.

    It was Pac and Fenix not Lucha Bros, it was to show how dominant they are before the tag team battle royale on Sunday.

    This is the first Matt Jackson promo where I actually believed what he was saying, the bucks aren't great at promos. That's a lot of people in AEWs problem, besides a handful like Moxley and Kingston. I find Omegas promos corny too. It's better for him if Callis is his mouth piece.

    I didn't want Nyla to win because I think she's slow and green but I don't understand why she didn't win because I don't think anyone cares about Ryo. If it wasn't going to be Nyla it should have been Britt Baker.

    The 6 man was good. FTR make everyone they work with better. Old man tully working the tiny boy made a lot of sense. Jungle Boy is really good on his own.

    John Silver is great and Adam Page is a star.

    It sounds like you just don't like tag matches really.

    You were right it was Pac and Fenix, I knew that didn't look right when I typed it but I'm so used to Lucha being together.

    It sounds like I just don't jerk off to every episode of Dynamite and like I do in every other thread, if I see some over the top bullshit I speak on it. The praise for this show, and other AEW shows, are just so ridiculous.

    I love tag wrestling. Just not what I saw last night other than 1 match.

    Of course it's someone older. Why else would he say "hall of fame worthy", someone like Ricochet or Cesaro wouldn't meet that criteria even if they didn't resign contracts.

    It's gonna be Diddy. He performed at WrestleMania 29, making him hall of fame worthy. Big Show and Diddy vs. Shaq and Snoop at Fyter Fest.

    So Randy Orton isn't Hall of Fame worthy?

    Yeah you're taking 2 midcard guys and saying they're not hall of fame worthy, but you can still be in your 20's and 30's and be considered "hall of fame worthy" John Cena, Brock, shit even Orton were hall of fame worthy by the time they were 30. There are people, like Edge, who were inducted in the WWE hall of fame before they turned 40.

    Regardless, it'll be a WWE wrestler.

    Well like you said, you have no idea what happened so don't worry about "fan fare" I mean, is it normal for the WWE to do a send off for talent? Where was the fan fare for Gerald Briscoe when he was released? What about Jim Ross? He was there for 20+.

    I mean, it sounds like he didn't want a send off and I doubt WWE were going to say "Hey before you go to AEW let's do something special" Dean Ambrose already lied to them about what he was going to do, that's why they did the Shield thing. Then like 2 days later he signs with AEW lol.

    Watched Jade's tag match and I gotta say... she came off looking like the biggest star in the ring. She was destined to be the biggest train wreck of all time, but she came off as pretty impressive. Shaq did fantastic as well, but that was Jade's match.

    Needs to be said again, but Rey Fenix is phenomenal.

    Saw the Shaq match and it really wasn't bad. Loved his chops and the table bump was great. Red Velvet worked hard and Jade Cargill... well, her look is incredible, there's no debating that. Better than I expected given how shitty this whole angle has been. Bit disappointed in Shaq's wrestling gear, thought he might've had something fun made.

    That said, I've been watching '97 Raw & Nitro over the last few months and I reached Dennis Rodman's initial run recently... so this whole thing with Shaq and Cargill looks especially weak in comparison to that.

    Well that was the fiirst name that popped into my head although Ive read Mick Foley on the threads and that makes sense with the 'exploding barbed wire death match' (does the barbed wire explode as theyre saying?)

    now onto there review:

    Shaq was fine...did some decent big man slaps, needs to work on falling to the floor some, but some big wrestlers never get that down with confidence and/or grace. Shaq did fall well with Cody through the two tables though. I think it was a missed opportunity not having him confront paul
    wight though. possibly due to Wight's no compete clause, which might have about 50-60 days remaining on it. So. perhaps Sunday or down the line.
    How is Red Velvet 5-0 with nine matches wrestled when Ive never seen her on Dynamite?
    She only wrestles on the B show that doesnt even have a tv contract, but we are supposed to buy her as a top talent? The booker needs to do a better job although I understand she was a replacement for a pregnant Brandi....
    Now, Jade CanKillAGoodMatch:
    Yes, I know she could be called 'green'. but, watching her, her every move, lack of selling, as Jim Ross pointed out, "The world revolves around her" and not in a good way.
    Instincts so bad, physical movements so bad and jerky, I say no way to her making it as a wrestler of any competency.

    Other matches, loved Tully, FTR and the missing Spears (doing much better in aew than wwe lol) coming out as the hidden evil cameraman, all while being escorted by JJ Dillion. Anybody say 4 Horsemen? are they allowed to?
    can you sue somebody and claim you own copyrights to a phrase thats almost 2000 years old from the bible? Or was used in tandem with Notre Dame football back in the 1920's?
    it would be a tough lawsuit to win imo but them not mentioning the phrase "4 Horsemen" shows AEW must fear legal action as our legal system certainly doesnt recognize the bible these days.

    Speaking of the bible, Im no Bucks fan, but Ive heard they are christian believers and it was wonderful to hear them honoring their father (even in the midst of that absurd angle) for their faith, compassion, love, empathy - all the things Jericho and MJF were missing from their fathers. Sadly, too much of that going around the world these daze. Sigh...

    Sting took the power bomb like a champ, good to see his neck is pretty solid although you never know with these things.

    One more thing, what happened to Chuck's real partner? Did his mom take him home in her mini-van?
    The guy's been gone with no mention for several months now. Knee? Ankle? Spine? Concussion or two?

    If this was 1997, or even 2007, Shaq would have been a huge deal. It was huge for WWE when he kept pretending he wanted to fight Big Show. We all love Shaq (I think) but even back in the mid 90's with WCW when he showed up with Hogan, it didn't really matter. Which is very strange because it was what, 2 years later and Rodman was there? Then Malone. Rodman just fit though, he was definitely nWo before nWo was a thing.

    So idk, maybe Shaq in the world of NBA=huge deal. Shaq in wrestling.....I think we wanted 10-15 years ago, now it's kind of like, well, better late than never.

    Trent's out with a pectoral injury for a few months.

    Overall I think that Dynamite feels a bit all over the place in comparison to where it was even a few months ago. A lot less well planned out. But what sets it apart is just how much FUN everyone seems to be having. Last night we had Shaquille O'Neal going through tables, Eric Bischoff and Conrad Thompson making appearances, Tully Blanchard rocking the classic US title on his way to the ring accompanied by JJ Dillon, JR and Schiavone having fun on commentary, ATSUSHI ONITA, Big Show giving a good promo, amongst other things.

    You have to admit though that's it not a great thing if someone rattles off that kind of list and nowhere do we see "AEW talent Marko Stunt had a good match, I liked what they did with Fenix, etc." Everything you praised had nothing to do with AEW.

    So you had two women take a rather long time setting up a couple of tables, Cody no selling a powerbomb from Shaq, Shaq just standing on the middle of the apron for no logical reason? At least the women seemed to be doing well in the ring.


    Big Show said Evolution instead of Revolution, could it be Batista on Sunday, or did he pull a Jeremy Piven?

    I don't get the booking of the Women's Eliminator. They've been building to a match between Baker and Rosa and then Nyla beats them both. Those two should have been in the semifinals. Then Ryo, who's not even signed, wins the whole thing. She's good, but I would have figured they want to push their own talent. And how long are they going to keep the belt on Shida? She's held it for almost a year. She's great in the ring, but limited in what they can do story wise. They need to pull the trigger on Baker and set up some decent feuds.

    When people ask whether talent is better off in WWE or AEW, all you have to do is look at the smile on Big Show's face last night. He was beaming.

    Yeah, Rosa losing to Nyla made no sense and Ryo being the ultimate victor was an even more big head scratcher. They brought up her past w/ Shida, but... ok who cares? They have a respectful hatred for each other, cool, but Thunder would have been money. I feel like this kind of brick walled her momentum.

    Oh man I was wondering when Captain AEW was going to chime in.

    This is probably the dumbest thing you've ever said and you say a lot of dumb shit when it comes to praising AEW.

    Babyface Big Show was constantly smiling it was ridiculous. Heel Big Show shouldn't be smiling. Think about this way. The guy was coming out to PLEASE RETIRE chants. The WWE scale back on using him because he's 50 and people complain 24/7 about how WWE (not AEW) use too many people from the past.

    I'd be smiling too if I was given 6-7 figures at that stage in my wrestling career to do nothing. Did you ever watch TNA? or WCW? Same shit different child with an open checkbook.

    Ryo is dating Kenny Omega, who books the women's division. And to be honest, the women's division has been the worst part about AEW. Extremely frustrating. I'm not even a fan of Britt Baker, I think she belongs in the Melina-Kelly Kelly era of women's wrestling but she's the best they have by a mile. The novelty of Nyla Jax has wore off, Thunder Rosa belongs to NWA, and everyone else....Damn shame they don't have Kong but she's up there in age too.

    AEW needs to get some of the WWE women over there because the non-WWE women are few and far between in terms of talent.

    Well it does in the sense that AEW are presenting this stuff on their show. I think we can give AEW some credit for using Tully, Paul Wight or Onita in the way they did/are even though AEW didn't "make them" because we know that WWE wouldn't do the same. Even if it just comes down to some of us having more in common with Tony Khan and Cody than Vince McMahon and Bruce Pritchard. And that could extend to say, FTR being in a prominent role, Mox consistently being in the main event, Jake Roberts having an on screen role. None of them are AEW originals - they made their names in WWE - but they are being given this platform by AEW.

    But I see your point. Long term the focus of AEW should be stuff that you most readily associate with AEW rather than Jim Crockett Promotions, FMW or WWE. If they want to be around in years to come they'll have to make their own stars and do more than serving nostalgia to older wrestling fans.

    Or maybe they don't lol. Shad Khan DOES have a lot of money.

    Yeah I mean don't get it twisted, I mark the fuck out as a 39 year old who's been a die hard fan of all wrestling since the 80's. Onita's only chance of being on WWE tv TODAY is getting inducted into the HOF which he probably will since he had a relationship with WWF back in the 90's (Who doesn't love watching Undertaker in FMW or HBK reffing Hayabusa v. Gannosuke??) I love seeing guys like Jake the Snake, Arn Anderson, no different than when they would show up here and there in the WWE.

    Riho or Ryo? Ryo seems unlikely to me.

    No in all seriousness I have no idea why Ryo won the tournament.

    Yahoo sports in Japan is reporting the AEW offered to bring him over for the PPV but he couldn't take the time out to quarantine.

    i agree. there's a ton of things i could criticize about AEW, plenty of things annoy me to varying degrees every week and i think they've been making a lot of very questionable booking decisions lately. but almost every single episode is good overall, i don't think i've ever watched an episode and not enjoyed it to some extent, and i'm always looking forward to the new episode every week.

    plus there are things that actually intrigue me about the future. hoping to see them pull the trigger on a real main event push for page sooner or later, what darby allin gets into next, how the inner circle angle with samy plays out, the development of a bunch of their promising young talent. there's really nothing in the medium or long term future in wwe, nxt or even njpw anymore that i'm too interested in.

    I rarely speak on Tony Khan. I'm talking about AEW as a whole. Everyone jocking that kid's nuts because he's Richie Rich. You know, the kid who has all the money, zero friends, just people who want a piece of a mark. Shit I envy the guy in a way because who the fuck wouldn't want to be in his shoes? I sure as fuck would be doing the same thing in the sense that if I had an open checkbook I would build a promotion in my own vision.

    And I would completely expect Tony to be on Wrestlezone talking about how shitty or how good of a job my company was doing. Tony obviously needs that attention his parents neglected (typical). I pity Tony Khan because it has to be really lonely knowing that you had to buy everything that makes you happy. Did he personally wrong me? Yes. By not giving me 7 figures to not stroke his dick.

    I came back to the forums to rant about this after seeing the "specualtion" on the news.

    How can so many people be so deluded or ignorant after Khan basically named Kurt Angle in his statement? If you somehow managed to miss it, go back and read it again.

    Why don't you explain it for us. I love Angle but the guy can't wrestle like he used to and he should really stay retired. If he was going to do commentary or "coach" like an agent or something that's one thing but they made it sound like this was a wrestler they signed for wrestling so in that case I really hope it's not Angle.

    Tony K said "it's true" a few times. If it is Angle I'd hope he doesn't wrestle because he looked ridiculous in his last few WWE matches but seems inevitable that he will if that's what he still wants to do.

    I saw someone suggest Jim Johnston which is a bit of a leftfield pick and while I doubt it is him he'd definitely qualify as HOF worthy and AEW could really do with some better themes.

    I feel like bringing in Sting, Wight and then Angle may somewhat counter AEW stand saying its all about the future at AEW. Of course it does all depend how they are used (Tully is a great use of a legend).

    Word is Christian is actually under contract with WWE.

    Hmm... I'm going to be let down if it's Angle.

    I saw someone suggest Jim Johnston which is a bit of a leftfield pick and while I doubt it is him he'd definitely qualify as HOF worthy and AEW could really do with some better themes.
    Yeah, he went out of hos way to fit in "It's true" 3 times when it didnt really make sense. Doesn't fit with Khans ususal turn of phrase, so an obvious plug.

    Regarding Angle wrestling - remember how he explained his state the last few matches with WWE, its very believable, and I think he would want to go out on something better than the Corbin match. I mean, who wouldn't!

    I'll be honest, I thought Angle's last matches in TNA and WWE were subpar....but was that more about Angle than anything else, including the "angle"? I think it's a shame if they put him in the ring as I've felt he's someone who is walking the line of paralysis. Look at how he fucking stands, all hunched over....I also fear for his well being because this guy might say he's sober now but how many times have we heard that?

    Back to Dynamite real quick. I forgot to give Shaq Diesel a shout out for sticking Cody with a combo Jacknife-Brodie Lee Powerbomb. The whole match I was like, if he doesn't powerbomb Cody he can't be Shaq Diesel.

    That show really sucked but the good parts were good enough to write home about.

I sure as fuck would be doing the same thing in the sense that if I had an open checkbook I would build a promotion in my own vision.

    And I would completely expect Tony to be on Wrestlezone talking about how shitty or how good of a job my company was doing. Tony obviously needs that attention his parents neglected (typical). I pity Tony Khan because it has to be really lonely knowing that you had to buy everything that makes you happy. Did he personally wrong me? Yes. By not giving me 7 figures to not stroke his dick.
    ND, seeing your posts the passed few days has led me to believe you have some serious shit going on in your life that's got you in a fowl, fowl mood. Hope this rut passes soon because you're on a bad tear.

    you've got omega, darby and the bucks as the champs, with moxley, ricky starks, brian cage and mjf all right in the thick of things with them. the ladder match for the tnt title shot are all dudes that weren't huge names somewhere else. they're definitely pushing new faces.

    Yeah I get that, I love what they are doing BUT I hope they don't go down the path of signing too many old guys is what I meant basically.

    They’re not signing these guys to be world champion, tho. These guys are assets more in a marketing sense and it makes sense for a young company to have a few well-knowns on the roster, but the majority of their roster are guys made on the indies/Japan/Mexico.

    Angles a fine signing but I think they would have been best just having him turn up. They make these build up announcements and people's hopes go higher than what's coming and they end up being disappointed.

    Way they worded it was like they are gonna get a prime big name which isn't the case (if it's Angle) but he's a still a big name and a legend.

    I don't even mind him wrestling if it's sparingly and makes sense, not sure what else they can do with him unless put him in a manager role, maybes with Variety Blondes that might be a cool mix.

    Other than that let him go out with a decent match, maybe Cody, Omega or even Moxley so they can gimmick it.

    Think the legends have a role to play but more in the back tbh, might get a few fresh matches but mostly I'm not that interested in them. Ten years ago and these would have been the right side of the veterans but now I just can't get that excited about in ring matches with them.

    Other than Angle who else could it be? It's not any of the big free agents (Lesnar, Punk, Cena etc) so what's the next best thing? Christian maybes.

    Christian is under contract with WWE. Someone mentioned Bully Ray but TK said it was "one of his favorite wrestlers ever" so it's probably Angle.
