    People that say New Day aren't re-signing make me groan. Yeah I can understand people like Gargano, and Keith Lee.

    But like the New Day? they've been featured for years whether Vince likes or not. They'll get theirs cause they're over. Xavier not dropping SD/RAW for G4 and maybe some Dark matches.

    Speaking of Gargano, I'm amazed Vince doesn't insert him into the Daniel Bryan role. To me he's a clone of that type of wrestler and character. He's probably the one guy left in NXT I hope goes to AEW. To me he's in that conversation as best talent in the world.

    I think New Day sticks around in WWE, but it’s not unreasonable to think they could make more money outside of WWE. I don’t even mean by going to AEW either. Those guys could start their own media company and make millions. That won’t happen in WWE.

    Vince would be more likely to make Gargano a referee at this point.

    Vince didn’t like Daniel Bryan in the Daniel Bryan role

    you think new day would be on AEW Dark? They’d come in and be at the top of the card in a stacked tag team division.

    Gargano solid, but he's not Bryan Danielson let's be real.

    They'd be over, sure. But I don't think they're some homerun talent, that'd just be the WWE push from the smarks that pretend to not watch WWE.

    They are the greatest tag team of all time. 2 of the 3 members have been IC and WWE champion. This is a galaxy brain take that 3 of the most popular wrestlers in WWE would be downgraded in AEW

    absolutely. You can look at it by tag team accomplishments, skill set, memorable matches, individual accomplishments, success outside of the ring

    You don't think Vince put him in spots to be successful prior to the WM30 build? I think its fair game to say Vince didn't really want to make Daniel his #1 going into WM30 but was forced into it

    It's weird because as a "tag team" you could say they are the greatest of all time. But as a "trio" they aren't. That would be The Shield.

    Wait...is this true?

    You mean WWE agrees to pay Woods x-dollars, let's say a million, and if he makes, let's say half a million from G4 then WWE now only has to pay him half a million?

    the shield weren’t around long enough for me. Obviously as a singles wrestlers they all went on to be wildly successful. Does the NWO (hall, Nash, hogan) count as a trio?

    I think they're in the HoF as a trio. Can't remember if Syxx was part of the speech/induction or not.

    I’d heard everyone makes over their guarantee if they are working and not hurt. Maybe the pandemic changed that worth no houses. New Day was probably doing 7 figures each in merch alone.

    My buddy does some work for a few WWE guys in Tampa and they aren’t starving at all.

    Not to say the independent contractor deal is right, just that these guys do make real money.

    No, because they added people instantly and became a faction of 32 wresters.

    You do have a point about longevity. I think the Shield were only around for 19 months before they broke up and they did have a short reunion but they don't compare to New Day.

    Still I think its long enough to be consider a trio given the impact they had and the fact it always stayed the three of them

    They went in as Hogan/Nash/Hall and Syxx. No Bischoff, he went in a year later alone.

    Thanks

    Night three of the upcoming Wrestle Kingdom will be New Japan vs NOAH, so that’s cool. Problem for New Japan is if they can’t get any AEW guys, I have no idea how they make nights one and two interesting.

    I don’t know if anyone is on Tik Tok but there’s a kid on there who is a huge wrestling fan with Downs who has a channel called Baker Banter and Cabana hooked him and his family up with tickets in St Louis and toured him backstage and had him meet all the wrestlers, including a meet and greet with Punk where Colt was also there…I think they may be at least cordial now.

    Which makes me think the chance of a storyline is more possible than if they still had major heat.

    Mox is boosted by persona and mic skills, and only slightly upgraded from his WWE days ring work wise. I've expected more from him in some matches that he didn't meet, but he also exceeded my expectations a few times. He's definitely solid and a top tier character in wrestling.

    I was wild in my New Day comments yesterday, apologies, I was off work and drinking and yeah.... No way is New Day a YT level talent, they'd be huge in AEW. I also don't ever see them leaving the machine cause they're one of WWE's cash cows and will always be treated right. I don't think they're the greatest of all time like someone said, but they're up there. Anything with New Day and Kenny/The Bucks is money. But I don't see it happening any time soon.

    Mox is a superior heel and that’s part of the problem. Him murdering guys in the tournament was great.

    Mox tournament stuff was great, the random out of no where alcohol stuff dampened it for sure. But BD gets to thrive cause it.

    This BD vs. Page and the Dark Order storyline rules.

    Been calling for it for a while, I really thought they would have gotten the Grand Slam rub and knocked off the Bucks.

    It's kinda weird how they book PnP, yeah they get a lot of big high profile IC matches constsantly. But they never get the love I feel they deserve.

    Lucha Bros vs. PnP is a money feud, they have tremendous chemistry and work well together. If we don't get that feud I'm going to be sad.

    Predictions for Winter is Coming II?

    Page vs Danielson
    Punk, ???, Lucha Bros vs The Pinnacle
    Briscoes vs PnP (I’m going to keep predicting this until it happens)

    I think Page/Danielson should get held off until Battle of the Belts, so maybe they do Danielson vs Silver at Winter is Coming. I think you get a Page match on that show though.
