i’ll still be surprised - cause i don’t believe it :D
Yup certain shit is so big and important even a spoiler can't spoil it lol. Bryan and Punk could live stream themselves in an AEW practicing their debuts in new Bryan and Punk AEW branded merch and it still would feel like "holy shit" when they actually walked out on TV.

I highly doubt the addition of Bryan or Punk would mean other wrestlers get “demoted.” No wrestler appears on “Dynamite” each and every week. For example, today there was no Young Bucks, Cody, Malakai Black, Eddie Kingston, Ethan Page, Scorpio Sky and Matt Hardy.

Bryan and Punk would simply be added to the rotation.

I like this approach. I like having different wrestlers on every week. Keeps the shows fresh and fun.

I agree. AEW with DB/Punk would be building a Raw 99/00 deep pool of talent where it feels like 7-8 different acts could be main eventing.

MJF
Jericho
Omega
Punk
Bryan
Darby
Page
Moxley
Young Bucks
Britt Baker

Contrast that in WWE 2000 which could feature:

Steve Austin
Vince McMahon
Rock
Undertaker
Mick Foley
HHH
Kurt Angle
Kane
Dudleys/Hardys/Edge & Christian
Trish/Lita

Sure he was. Their peaks were not in high popularity times. And neither come close to the star power of Scott Hall in the nWo.
Why would that matter? Hall was an upper mid carder in the early - mid 90's, how his career played out afterwards is irrelevant.

Bryan and Punk in 2021 are both bigger names than Scott Hall circa 1996.

JEEZ, that's without even mentioning the likes of Cody Rhodes, Christian Cage, Malakai Black, Pac, Andrade El Idolo, Eddie Kingston, Lance Archer, Miro, Orange Cassidy, Sammy Guevara, Ricky Starks, Matt Hardy, Jungle Boy, Brian Cage, Dustin Rhodes, Young Bucks, Lucha Bros, Proud & Powerful, FTR, Thunder Rosa, Serena Deeb, Riho, Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander, Yuka Sakazaki, and Tay Conti who would ALL add to the upper card too.

So I guess OC and Darby and other guys main event push ends just like that. DB is the main event now

Think this is a good move for Bryan as he'll get the freedom to do as he pleases in terms of wrestling dates. Not sure if this is really a game changer for AEW.

I disagree. It’s not just for a cheap pop. Bryan in particular has so much to give


My favourite wrestler in AEW. I’m so happy and it’s not even confirmed 🤣
but if he is gonna go to japan anytime he wants that restricts how AEW can use him, hence cheap occasional pop

Can absolutely seeing this happening. He wants freedom and a gateway to wrestle in Japan. There are new people to wrestle in AEW, he will get creative control and tons more beside. Just surprised it would leak, could just be to boost ratings as he could turn up at any point.

The Japan part of the story is making me think this is real. Bryan has always wanted to participate in a G1 Climax Tournament. This might be his opportunity of continuing to work in the States near his family, but still, live out his dream by being part of a G1.

Bryan in a G1 has me super excited. The matches he could have! Naito, Ibushi, Tanahashi, Okada, Ospreay, Shingo, Ishii, White, Suzuki, Hiromu, Kenta, Sabre Jr, !!!!!!!!!!!!

I mentioned this i think in a different thread, but he better choose some safe workers, i worry moreso about him in AEW since there's more risky moves and people who aren't as safe as in WWE.

Well well well AEW fans, with Danielson signed, sealed and delivered and CM Punk allegedly on his way we may just have another pro wrasslin war on our hands.

Despite what some might think I'm firmly on the AEW side, it's clobbering time, yes! yes! yes!
