    ah I haven't been watching NXT (although I follow him on twitter). have his matches been as well done as Bad Bunny's from start to finish? I know Pat has the personality.

    According to Adnan, they are the Viking Express.

    His two takeover matches put Bad Bunny to shame.

    Ronda (but does she count)

    But #1 for me would be Pat McAfee

    The new play by play dude for RAW was put in a tough spot and he failed. Hopefully he improves quickly.

    Got to say that the NXT show last night was really strong for a post TakeOver night.

    Kushida winning the title. Strong leaving the show to head to Smackdown? I laughed at Cole and Kyle cursing each other out as they entered the hospital.

    Index!?! That was a super fun 8 person match to close the show.

    No clue if Frankie can wrestle or not. She's Morrisons lady right? I like the gimmick. Pretty cool to see all three champions in the middle of the ring. NXT already building the next wave of top tier lady talent.

    Yep, Raw and Smackdown are, “oh yeah this is on and there isn’t anything else” tv viewing. AEW (and NXT on a different night) are “it’s 8 o’clock on a Wednesday, let’s go”

    Joe wasn’t getting cleared from the sounds of things. He was their best color guy though.

    Joe is a diamond.

    promos, workrate, intensity, humor, can work commentary and wrestle tag, hardcore, mat work, brawl.

    You name it in "this business" and Joe not only can do it, but is one of the best at it.

    AEW would be insane not to jump on the chance to sign him.


    Reforming the IIconics would be perfect, either in TNA or AEW.

    It's not that I want AEW to be the "place where ex-WWE stars go" but I mean, come one, Joe still has half a decade in him at least, before moving to commentary full time if he wants, and the IIconics were never not entertaining. AEW's women's division needs more big personalities to compete with Britt Baker's presence

    Vince broke them up for no good reason and then immediately paired them up with other wrestlers.

    So Joe probably asked for his release, right? WWE wouldn't clear him so he is going elsewhere.

    That’s my guess. On this list, he’s far and away the guy AEW should sign.

    Rest don’t really have a spot in a really crowded roster.

    AEW needs to trim their roster down as well. They are bloated.
    Angelico
    Brandon Cutler
    Janela
    Jack Evans
    Luther
    Marko Stunt
    Peter Avalon
    Sonny Kiss
    Big Swole
    Leva Bates

    The only name of value that got cut by WWE was Joe. The rest weren't shit and never getting over outside of a comedy bit.

    Joe not getting medically cleared but signing a deal with AEW to be a wrestler will be weird. If he does sign for AEW he should instantly be in the main event and champion. He's they good and worthy of the call.

    Maybe it's because I haven't really paid attention or always fast forward when he is on because Jack Evans is so bad, but I will check him out next time.

    Yea they should probably split them up or just let them both do singles stuff for a bit. When Angelico has been on Dynamite on singles action he has looked good.

    If aew cut some guys who are just there because they are indy friends of the young bucks and can bring in Joe and Andrade but resist urge to bring in rejects, it could really help their roster.

    Aew has a few guys I like but I think part of reason I haven't gotten fully into them is because they have a ton of guys I don't give two shits about. Cut some crap and bring in a few more quality guys they could really up my interest

    I am fine with the size of AEW’s roster because they monetize both Dark shows and they need workers to keep that content fresh. Their issue is trying to fit their usual crew on every show; it’s just insanity sometimes.

    Factions on top of factions just to get everyone screen time. I like factions, but it is overkill at this point.

    Yep. I love Team Taz but they are fodder every week on Dynamite. You’re better off keeping them on Dark for the time being rather than being set pieces for other workers.

    It's not the size it's the size and quality. A lot of guys I don't think are good enough to be in the spots they are in. I also think a company should start giving guys scheduled time off to keep people fresh. Not every one needs to be on every show for the entire year. Start writing off guys for a few months at a time to give them breaks and stagger them to keep shows and feuds fresh. Not sure why no company seems to do that

    Team Taz is splitting up. Anybody watching for the last month can see they’re building to that.

    AEW might be looking to bulk up their roster, not downsize it, since they're getting ready to launch a second show.

    Yeah they are splitting up but whenever they are on TV it’s to lose. They haven’t even done a perfunctory FTW title match to build Cage even a little bit on Dynamite. The split won’t mean anything when these guys just get chased off by Sting most weeks.

    IIconics can fit with AEW. It’s not like their women’s roster is a bunch of amazing wrestlers. Peyton is just as good as most of their girls. They would fit perfectly with Brit. And if Matt Hardy can clear concussion protocol Joe can. Joe would be a main event draw.

    A bunch of these people are big characters on Dark and the youtube videos. Gives them background when they job on Dynamite. Also Cutler/Avalon had the best feud/storyline in wrestling this past year.
