That said, I do believe more talent have been signed or have agreed verbally or otherwise that they are planning to sign but some of them are tied up with a contract from other promotions. Once the TNT show kicks in, we'll likely see those talent spread throughout the show.
I know they have two big guys signed, one is warlow ( who is being trained by Lynn and Billy gunn) and the other one is a Mexican power house ( reported by a Mexican journalist on twitter but he said he cant reveal the name if I remember well). they also have not reveal the full potential of the women division according to omega who said he has much more cards up his sleeves and take it with a grain of salt but I have seen some very cryptic interaction between good ol Jr and fatu ( a young samoan) he already teased going to aew on twitter and lately again teased on twitter about being all in and Jr responded to him ( forgot the answer). they also have interest in Jacob fatu ( weird that we haven't heard of him yet, wwe didnt sign him yet even tho he is free). the common thing between all those guys is that they are heavyweights. even the young bucks said we haven't seen every performer from the tag division.
again like cody said on the jr podcast, he very well understand the importance of big guys and heavyweights and he has been working on scouting them for months.
people might end up surprised when their full roster looks a lot more different, I won't understimate those guys, they are smart.

I suspect many women and big hosses are going to be signed moreso than anyone else. They need to flesh out the roster a bit in that regard.

No matter how hard they along side Stephanie McMahon have pushed, the real fans of wrestling have resisted.

Its why RAW's rating are the worst they have been since 1993, because of people like you. THANKS ALOT
Its not left wing. Its trying to protect the company from being seen as backwards and bush league, and not with the times in the mainstream. Or did you forget about women main eventing UFC, you know, the place where all the Attitude era fans are supposed to have went?

Cant believe Im being made to defend WWE here.

On topic, expanding on my thoughts further; yeah, its understandable if they have a large roster. If theyre going to run G1 style tournaments in the future, then yeah theyll need a big roster. If theyre going to swap talent in an out to give them a break, its also important. Its just important that they dont have too many talents, although I dont get the sense that the roster is gonna balloon to 200 people like was the case with WCW. They just dont need put themselves in a position where they need to extend it to a 3 hour weekly show, even if they can manage a 3 hour weekly show far better than the other company.

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

I wonder if Texano is the Mexican powerhouse. I know he tried to make it in LU to get American exposure but didn't catch on in any appreciable way. He then was in the ring teaming against Cody at AAA's recent Triplemania appearance.

I think Rusev is pretty likely as well - something is definitely up with him sitting out these last months. I know the official story is he asked for time off, but I don't think he would have did it if WWE would just add time on the end of his deal. So it's more likely that he refused to re-sign and they took him off television rather than try to job him out or embarrass him on his way out as fans are too smart to that now.

I'd like to bring in Jeff Cobb as well.

These guys are more the big men type I'd like to bring in - the squat power base types. Given the size of the AEW roster I'd be wary of bringing in guys like Cass or Hager - 6'7" muscled up types because they're too big in comparison to the current top guys main eventing AEW.

maybe, I also thought of Texano. we do know he is Mexican tho because it was from a Mexican reporter if I remember well. Jeff cob is also someone I thought about, cob Jacob fatu ( wwe didnt pick him yet...it's weird I think aew took him), and I also think rusev. Dave seltzer did say they could get him if they want. his contract is up soon.
i also know Jr is in contact and probably recruited S.Fatu , he isn't a "big" guy as we see it but I think he got a food size.

Jacob Fatu is currently the MLW champion - I have to believe he's still signed there. He only signed with them this year and debuted in February, so in the very least I'd assume he's there until the early new year. Contra Unit did recently add a new member, maybe they're doing so with the knowledge Fatu is a sure goner when his contract is up as there will be a bidding war for him and MLW obviously can't compete moneywise.
