Punk is really the only guy that could hang with Austin/Rock on the current roster. Austin knows it.
maybe Wyatt could do something crazy with the Brothers of Destruction and feud with Mankind. I could see his character playing an interesting role in the AE for sure when gimmicks were at an all time high.
I could see heel Big E in the nation of domination (as an extra) for sure or maybe even R-Truth with his conspiracy gimmick being picked up by them or something.
Rollins definitely could have hung with the Hardys and Dudleys and Edge/Christian in the 2000's. I would choose Ambrose over Reigns for his partner though because Ambrose is use to all the crazy CZW bullshit and could probably get sent through 10 tables in a week like they were doing lol.
Out of everyone the only people I could see maybe "make it" in the AE are Punk and Wyatt. But as much as I hate to admit it and as big of a mistake it may have been at the time, heel Punk has the perfect character to just feed to Austin, so that may very well have just been the route they would take with Punk lol.
