NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Quote:
According to a report from Dave Meltzer in the most recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are NXT talents to maybe looking at All Elite Wrestling as a better alternative than being called up to the main roster of WWE.

The report suggests that there are those that are playing the wait-and-see game to see what happens with the Pro Wrestling landscape and AEW’s TV future.

Who are some NXT Superstars you would like to see the jump to All Elite Wrestling? Sound off in the comments below.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

I wonder if Cole is one of them @MarkyWhipwreck ;

There is this thing though. Even if AEW gets a tv deal, it will be just 2 hours a week, there is no way in hell they can fit all these people who "seem to be interested" besides the ones who will be the mainstays (Cody, Page, Omega, Jericho, The Bucks)

I know this is totally random and OT, your Avatar is the best one yet. Peyton looks so much like a Champion(I know that kinda doesn't make sense.)

Just had to comment.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Adam Cole, I think many think so cause his GF and his mates in AEW. I don't know possibly with the way he's been booked at times and he probably get better booked in AEW. Only time will tell.

It wouldn't surprise me if a few might be seen a better career unfolding in AEW then for them when they hit the main roster in WWE. Keep a eye out for anyone who goes from been booked great to been booked like a fool. I think you might get 1 or 2 in 2019 who might skip out on NXT to join AEW. But I doubt it be many.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

I think all of them should consider it. It is a great career strategy. Make a name for yourself in NXT, make Vince think that you eventually want to come to the main roster so they book you well in NXT, then go straight to AEW. Now who knows if AEW will actually know what they are doing in terms of booking people well, but at least in AEW, the owner won't go out of his way to sabotage the NXT talent just because he thinks he knows better than everyone.

They probably see no future for themselves once they get called up to the main roster. NXT stars consistently get buried once they debut.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

AEW is going to make the mistake that killed WCW, and it's not signing WWE's also-rans, it's giving active wrestlers booking power. These guys idolize NWO and NWO never missed an opportunity to put themselves over or bury an up and comer, which is why WCW could never develop young talent even though they had the Power Plant.

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.

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

Just look at the history of NXT call ups and you can see the writing on the wall.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

I think that's one thing AEW really has going for it - timing.

Not only are there a lot of fans tuning out at a rapid rate just going off ratings, house show and live show attendances but there's years upon years of proof that those who flourished down in NXT, who have worked hard for most of their career to get a scratch at WWE, get called up and end up doing sweet fuck all.

AEW would offer them a good alternative, a great platform to further build their character and become stars in their own rights on a national TV show with creative freedom. Sure, they may use AEW as a stepping stone to show WWE what they're missing out on to potentially end up signing for WWE in future but that's something AEW shouldn't even think about right now and if they can ever sign some of the talent down in NXT they should jump at it. Some of these guys have some real huge followings from independent days and the more eyes on the product the better.

Re: NXT Superstars Interested in All Elite Wrestling?

Any wrestler, NXT or otherwise, should have an interest in AEW, whether they really want to go or not.

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.
