thoughts?

personally it was a shock to me, it means we haven't even seen half of their roster and in the same thread cody does confirms that they do have some big guys and heavyweight guys but they haven't been released.

while we knew not all their roster was revealed this percentage is quite shocking.

earlier this week I also saw some kind of Mexican journalist say that aew is still hiring heavyweights guys who are heading there.
thoughts guys?

I don't think it's that much of a shock.

I'm sure he's probably including those he can't legally confirm for now as they are contracted elsewhere but probably given word that they'll be signing for AEW as well as those they're willing to bring through on television who 95% of the worlds population probably haven't heard of therefore didn't need any big deal being made via Twitter or via YouTube etc.

Wardlow for example. He's signed yet they haven't confirmed anything and they're probably waiting for weekly television to start so they can just have him destroy some jobbers. No one knows who he is though so no point making him seem a big deal before he's signed. Let the audience make their mind up when shows start etc.

Only 40%!!
There is no way that only a weekly 2hr show will suffice

I think they will hit the ground running with 2x shows weekly and havnt announced it yet.....

Feels like an over exaggeration.

They've got just a 2 hour weekly show. They've got 8 real tag teams plus more that you can put together, around 10-15 women on the roster, a good mix of top stars and unknowns, plus their agreements with OWE and AAA.

And that's less than half your roster? If that's true, it sounds like overkill for a 2 hour weekly show.

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

As I said in the other thread, the best approach would be to rotate who they use each week. If they actually have as big of a roster as Cody claims, they should leave a handful of their top guys off the show entirely during certain weeks so as to not overexpose them.

Going to two shows would be a bad idea.

Holy fuck!!! 40 percent only. I wonder who the 60 percent are? And do they have them locked up waiting or is it more of a prediction

i do think they need a better midcard tho. the current one isn't extremely strong. so their main event and uppercased + their tag team is great so far. but their women division and midcard needs work
it'll be interesting to see tho

More tags - men and women

More hosses - couple of heavyweights - couple of part timers

I can see it.

60% is an over exaggeration though - has to be
