    Nak is obvious - contract ends January.

    AJ - would be the biggest star, bigger than Cody and Buck and even Jericho. But Vince will THROW money at him.

    Hardy’s - nostalgia act by now but they can be special events and Matt can fuck around more

    Ryder - criminal underuse

    Gallows - as above

    Anderson - as above

    Paige - AEW needs a ‘slut’ smart to the business

    Maruo is up in the middle of the year and he loves new challenges more than money.

    Generally I think Vince fucked up by trying to kill AEW by bribing Cody and the YB because that just made them more valuable to AEW, AEW seem more valuable and tenable to tv networks and boosted the value of midcarders in WWE.

    I think most if not all top guys are going to play it safe and wait and see on AEW...especially the ones who are age 40 plus and thinking of winding down. The midcard guys stuck in catering will probably consider it though...especially the ones who buy their own hype.

    Maybe this would motivate Nakamura? Seems like he's been on cruise control compared to what I've seen of him in Japan. (I'm far from an expert on Japan, but have seen his matches over there with AJ, for example.)

    They got mentioned at every show The Young Bucks were on for two years so they'll get something out of them.

    Good point that these guys (consistent in their reliability) bring up.

    Ryder's chick just got to NXT. He won't leave while she's in the company unless he gets turfed.

    She left the championship in Impact to go to NXT and every social media post is her reveling in just being there. Going nowhere. Hell, I'd be surprised if they released Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis and those two basically scammed their way in with no intention of being useful.

    Are they going to do women's wrestling? That would be a huge mistake imo.

    One of the worst things about modern WWE (and UFC) is having to cringe through women's matches.
