The Supposed WWE talent "Exodus".

Remember all the hype about top WWE wrestlers jumping ship to AEW?

Let's look at the wrestlers who were "going" to AEW

AJ Styles: re-signed with WWE.

Dolph Ziggler: re-signed with WWE.

Batista: retired in WWE.

Goldberg: signed with WWE.

Randy Orton: re-signed with WWE.

Shinsuke Nakamura re-signed with WWE.

The Revival: (win over the The Usos confirms that they re-signed).

Undertaker: re-signed with WWE

Ambrose: reportedly returning to WWE.


So far the "threat" of AEW has been all hype and no substance. The AEW "effect" is a myth that is being pushed by internet smarks to make the new glorified Indy fed look like a bigger deal than it actually is. The smarks did the exact same thing with "billionaire backed" TNA and ROH back in the 2000s. So what if AEW will be airing on TNT? TNA aired on Spike/TNN and that didn't amount to a hill of beans.

With PAC/Neville walking out, it's actually AEW who are losing their top names.

The Revival's contracts aren't up until 2020. No one was certain about that talent leaving. It was really only The Usos, Randy Orton, AJ Styles and Nakamura that were up for grabs. None of them jumping would have been surprising, but neither is any of them re-signing with WWE.

Re: The Supposed WWE talent "Exodus".

LOL those are the worst examples.

That Ambrose report is bullshit. That site looks like it was put together in 10 minutes. He will be either going to AEW, starting acting full time, or taking a break from wrestling. Orton, Taker, Goldberg & Batista? Really?

Styles is a made man in WWE why would he leave? No one expected him to as he is planning on retiring soon. The Revival winning doesn't confirm anything except WWE's 50/50 booking. Nakamura & Ziggler I can give you those two.

Nak probably just wants stability and Ziggler is a complacent complainer.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

No it doesn't. LMAO. The Revival are out of here as soon as their contracts are up.

Regardless, a couple things. #1, of course the top names in WWE who are paid ridiculously well and can do whatever they want are staying. Like.....what the fuck does that prove? Oh my god, Undertaker is staying. As if AEW would even use a 70 year old Undertaker. Randy Orton? Come on. Randy Orton's already on a light schedule, he doesn't need AEW. Goldberg, Batista, all these retired guys. Dolph Ziggler's basically a comedian now, he's only on tv because Owens won't go to Saudi Arabia. He'll fuck off again right after. Nakamura only cares about money and AEW won't overpay for Nakamura because he's useless, but WWE will. Vince is a horrible, wasteful spender. Look at how much he pays Brock. If AEW made him a similar offer, Vince would triple it because he likes to throw money into the wind.

Secondly, some people probably want to actually, you know.....see how AEW actually books and operates week to week, once they're actually an up and running promotion, which they aren't right now. You may get more people jumping if AEW proves to be something they like, but not everybody is willing to jump into a brand new venture before they see it.

In spite of this, I do agree that AEW will never amount to anything more than the new TNA, only they won't be as incompetent. Possibly minimal incompetence if they're lucky. I say minimal because there will be some incompetence guaranteed, with the Young Bucks and their kayfabe destroying matches running rampant. Sadly, that's a guarantee.

I don't see a mass AEW exodus. Rather, what I think AEW will do, is put fear into the heart of Vince McMahon, which will allow for the talent to re-negotiate better, cushier, more well paid deals than they have right now. We've already seen this, they offered jobbers like The Revival half a million dollars each a year. If that's what The Revival were offered (and turned down, by the way), I shutter to think what Vince will offer to a Seth Rollins when his contract is coming due, and he knows that he holds a position of power over Vince McMahon. Why Vince is scared of AEW is beyond me, but he is.
