As much as I want to see some more cool AAA characters, I hope the rest of the roster is more of serious type wrestlers. The roster is kind of "gimmick-heavy" at the moment for a company that allegedly wanted a serious sports-type approach.



Trying to have fun with some wrestling edits here !

I hope they don't sign too many guys. One problem with wwe is they have too many people to juggle talent wise



IT FUCKING HAPPENED

It makes perfect sense. They already have a partnership with AAA. So a good number of guys will likely tour Mexico.

They are also going to allow their wrestlers to freely work the indies, as long as they don't appear on tv, dvd, webcast, PPV, etc.
So there might be a few guys who appear mostly as jobbers or at house shows, and then work more on the indies as well.

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.

If AEW brought in Enzo, I would never watch them again.

He is a talentless bum. He has almost no real training, and has hurt people, including himself, because of this. He also is a complete asshole who refuses to take responsibility for his own BS and instead blames everyone else.

And I'm pretty sure AEW is gonna end up running about 160 shows a year once they get everything set up.

That includes 4 PPV's, 52 weekly tv spots, and 104 house shows ran twice a week.

And that's not including any special PPV/Supercards shows that they run aside from their main 4 PPV's.

That goes up to 168 shows if they choose to run a full 12 month PPV schedule.

All-Time Favorite Wrestlers:
The "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels

"The American Dragon" Bryan Danielson
"The Phenomenal" AJ Styles
"The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels
Ben Satterly (AKA PAC and Adrian Neville)

If they're doing it like a sport maybe people are only there 3-6 months out of the year.'

Like if you're in a hot story line you're active for X amount of time.

If not then you get time off, can compete other places until needed.

yes, but how many of those will get used?

unless they're using a rotation system

i.e a month or 2 a time for a storyline then disappearing

Hopefully all the interesting talent are in that other 60% because aside from Jericho, MJF, Spears and Darby Allin there's nobody else I see myself getting invested in.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

If this means we will not be subjected to the same main event guys on every show, that is great news. Thats death for WWE; they dont have enough interesting stuff for their top tier talent with that much exposure.

I hope this means storylines for all people in AEW.
