Hopefully, as this current roster is pure garbage.

In fact I would be mad if wasn't like that.

Probably an exaggeration, but I assume most will be jobbers which is needed. How many will actually matter is the real intriguing part

Re: only 40% of the aew roster have been revealed so far

very surpriing if true simply because they are doing few shows. Only about 2 shows a week..just over 100 a year. You dont need a large bloated roster when you dont have 5 hours plus of weekly tv and multiple touring house shows.

Keep the roster slim and get rid of most of the mediocre trash.

Re: only 40% of the aew roster have been revealed so far

A lot more women for sure - Ivelisse, Teal Piper and Jazz likely all signed. IIRC they need five more women still to get to 21 for the CBR.

Three more tag teams would be six more hires as well.

Also I wonder if they signed jobbers to a certain level of deal.

No way they have 40+ more wrestlers not named yet. But I could see upwards of 20. Five more women, 6 more tag wrestlers and nine singles men.

Rusev seems to be likely, Scurll likely. Is he counting PAC? Wardlow is known. What about non-exclusive deals with some AAA talent? Enzo and Cass is a real possibility as nZo's mouth aimed at WWE would be a fun thing. LAX are free agents. Jake Hager unfortunately. When does Cobb's contract expire?

Honestly, I feel like he's learned some hard life lessons since WWE, and he's been busting his ass off. I'd welcome giving him an opportunity.

AEW road schedule would be better for his mental health as well. I don't think you bring him in without nZo though. 70 shows a year means you could sleep in your bed 5 nights a week.

I know it sounds so little, but NHL and NBA teams play 82 games a year and some lesser players playing time is 5 minutes a game in the NHL and NBA players 10-15 often get the same or don't play at all - just suit up and ride the pine.

Players also play half their games "at home" and all their road travel is handled by the team chartering planes and the like and they have an off-season.

40%? Jesus, they already have close to 50 on their roster, if this is right that would be over 110 they would have plus the partnerships with other promotions. That's WWE size roster if this is accurate.

Cody: Weve revealed about 40% of the roster. Sometimes its better to let the painter paint and then judge the picture.

https://twitter.com/codyrhodes/statu...318709765?s=21

So more than half the roster hasnt even been revealed yet according to Cody. I wonder who else they have in store?

A few easy guesses based off following closely:

Wardlow (name was on the whiteboard in a vid; he follows AEW, Cody, etc. on twitter)

Marty Scurll (obviously friends with the Elite)

Pac (should be rejoining now that he lost the Dragon gate title)

Someone from AAA?

Etc.

The hottest free agent at the end of the year is going to be Tessa Blanchard. I believe her contract is up at the end of 2019. Both AEW & WWE are going to want to add her. Tessa to WWE could beef up an already talented roster. Tessa to AEW can give AEW a legit face/backbone to their womens division. Will be interesting to see where she goes.
