Not even remotely similar. Both Punk and Danielson are older then Hall and Nash were.

Nash was a recent former champion and Hall was a recent IC champion jumping at the height of their popularity. Punk hasn't wrestled in 6 years, was humiliated in MMA and his stock is possibly the lowest its been. Danielson won't be able to use the name which made him famous, has a long history of concussions, is more limited in the ring and has to protect himself, hasn't been popular for around 6 years.

You can dress it up however you like, but neither are game changers.

AEW mentioned Tony Khan making an announcement next week. It would be smart to announce DB signing if it's true. Would definitely help with ticket sales.
Why do people keep saying this? It literally said in big, clear letters on screen that he is there to announce "a new live show".

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!
Do you genuinely think if these 2 b-listers are signed, AEW would become a genuine threat for WWE?

No they won't be a threat to WWE and its getting boring people going on about AEW is on that level. Not yet and not for a long time.

BUT to deny they aren't actual competitors to WWE now is sheer delusion.

they are not WWE competitors. They are an alternate option to WWE.

WWE is far too popular to have competition.

Nabbed from Reddit:

'Meltzer said he doesn't yet know for a fact that Bryan is signed for AEW, but all signs so far point to the deal being done, with a debut in New York being the most likely outcome. WWE's talks with NJPW earlier this year happened because WWE wanted to keep Bryan at all costs, but NJPW chose to go with AEW, which Dave says was the deciding factor for Bryan's decision.'

That NJPW partnership may be paying off big time!

For wrestlers who love the sporting side of pro wrestling, New Japan remains the pinnacle and that's one reason why this partnership has benefits.
