At the very worst, AEW can be a great bargaining chip for a lot of these wrestlers who's contracts might be coming up and for guys in NXT who might flounder on the main roster, it's at least something to consider.

Now AEW can't hire everybody, nor should they. And they already have a pretty solid roster. So while I'm sure there's interest, they don't have the amount of content that WWE has, meaning there are less spots and opportunities to be had. They might be better opportunities, but there are less of them.
AEW does not have to hire everyone, just the best of the best. Plus they will get way more money going to AEW than the starter contracts they get paid for in NXT which is peanuts.

Everybody is going to rush to AEW expecting to get better booking, but they'll have a glass ceiling there too. They're never going to be world champ over Cody and Omega, and whatever other Bullet Club buddies eventually sign.
They are smart guys running that company, and I don't see them turning into an also ran spot for ex WWE talent, The Young Bucks were around in TNA when all the old farts from WWE/WCW were coming over and they even hated it. Do I think if an Ambrose or Sasha Bank's fall into their laps that they shouldn't sign them, for sure they will make their product better and get more eyes on it. If a top talent from WWE is interested in going to AEW then they should get them, if it's someone who's not going to offer AEW anything new or is on the wind down in their careers then I agree they should sign them.

I doubt Omega and Cody will be hogging the title, those two are unselfish workers and will do what's best for the business they are running.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Glad to see that some people in this thread are thinking logically about AEW. They can't sign everyone and even when they sign "the best of the best" not all of them can be booked to look like a strong Champion at the same time. Some of them will have to eat pins at some point and last I checked, people hate 50/50 booking.

Understandable that some people in NXT are interested in AEW considering where they are at now and how some former NXT talent are being used on the main roster at the moment, but going to AEW for anyone would be a huge risk because they would be jumping out of a very large pond to go in to a smaller pond thats already crowded with other big fishes.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Another thing to consider is that as of now AEW only has a 2 hour show to fill. WWE has like 5 brands to fill. That's why you see them monopolize so much talent and will continue to see them do so, even with a little more competition. That in one way is why NXT is so appealing to some guys. You can work under the WWE banner without having to sacrifice as much right away.

So while AEW should always look for talent (no company should ever stop in that regard) they're already building a unique roster to fill their content.

I'm more partial to Ambrose/Moxley vs. Omega myself .

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Cole and UE would be the most obvious.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

I think the most obvious choice would be Dream. He HAS to know he'll be Fandango on the main roster. Absolutely has to know.

Adam Cole could be in a position like Seth Rollins because Vince should be obsessed with his look. I don't know if he will be, but he could be. If I were him I'd not leave until he sees what a main roster run would look like. If Vince doesn't like his look, then get out.

Why on Earth would Vince be obsessed with Adam Cole's look? Dude is like 160 lbs soaking wet. Yeah he looks like HBK but he looks like HBK's mini-me.
