If All In is any indication, even the big non-Elite names have little chance of getting to go over.
Omega had just won the IWGP title and should have gone over Pentagon. Plus they wanted to play up the Jericho cruise.

They were giving Cody his NWA title reign to get people talking about the NWA again which was the right call (and Aldis got it back pretty quickly)

Hangman > Joey Janela

The Bucks and Ibushi went over Mysterio/Bandito/Fenix and they should have considering that they work together often

Scurll lost to Okada

So it’s not like the wins and losses weren’t justified

Re: AEW - All Elite Wrestling (The Elite/Jericho/Ross/Khan) - New Promotion?

I don't think that anyone is really arguing if they should or shouldn't have gone over. Point is that some midcarders from WWE are unlikely to get strong booking in theoretical AEW just because WWE are "underutilizing" them.

Anyone migrating between the promotions early would get favourable positioning and booking, however. One, as a sign of gratitude and two, to entice others to make the same move.

I don't get the vibe from Cody & the Bucks that they'd do the Dusty Rhodes/Triple H special. If they get someone who is more over & more talented than they are, they'd do the job on the big shows 99 times out of 100. Bucks have always let established and tenured tag teams rotate wins with them.

If this happens it will be a bomb ratings wise - they'll be lucky to get 400k weekly (or is 400k considered a good rating nowadays ?).

The people behind this need to realize that WWE get's relatively good ratings because they're the WWE and not because of the quality of the programming (LOL), the strength of the WWE brand name is incredible with a rich and long history. Look at Impact and ROH, they can't draw shit ratings wise because professional wrestling is basically dead, sports entertainment is alive and well but the market for that is very small and niche, made up of almost entirely of fat bearded guys with glasses in their 30's and 40's.

Re: AEW - All Elite Wrestling (The Elite/Jericho/Ross/Khan) - New Promotion?

As far as guys jumping ship from WWE, I don't know if really about getting a "main event spot." It's more to me being fulfilled creatively. Look at Finn Balor. Finn Balor is a guy who hardly ever has an actual storyline dedicated to him. He's used mostly as a guy who can make other guys like McIntyre, Lashley, Corbin, etc. look good.

And it's not that he always loses. He's about 50/50 most of the time. It's that most of the matches he's in don't really matter, because there isn't a lot going for them storyline wise.

So if he cares about that and he got a sweet deal from this potential new company, I could see him wanting to leave. Same thing with guys like Gallows & Anderson who are doing absolutely nothing.

Ziggler's a guy I don't agree about honestly. #1, if he wanted to leave WWE, he would have done so years ago. And #2, while Dolph has been underutilized in the past, this year he's been at Tag Champion, IC Champion, been apart of main event angles. I don't see him leaving after all that.

I still find it hard to believe the reports that 2 talents have already agreed to deals in principle because we don't even know if this thing is going to get off the ground. Even if they are creatively suppressed, it's still a job. And I don't see anyone leaving guaranteed money until they know this thing is off the ground.

But if it does, then yes I could see people leaving if they can get somewhat comparable money.

From what I read Punk said he would "listen to any offer" which is not exactly the same as "I'm All In!" but you know, headlines.

He also said Cody never made him a formal offer for ALL IN and kind of implied that if had he, Punk would have accepted.

He was very coy, so he could just be playing around, keeping his name in the press. He does have some show on Netflix to promote or something
