Jumping Ship to AEW

Postby VaderBomb » Jan 11, '19, 11:39 am

There have been vague reports that some WWE wrestlers are unhappy with their role in the company and could potentially sign with AEW. Some names that have been mentioned are Zack Ryder, Tye Dillinger, Tyler Breeze and Dolph Ziggler.

Aside from these guys (which the jump remains to be clarified), which other WWE wrestlers would you like to see leave WWE and try and make a big name for themselves in AEW?

Aiden English - I feel like a lot more can be done with his character and development, while being decent in the ring, but never given enough time of day in WWE.

Bayley - The WWE will never understand how to utilize her talent and her character and a fresh start somewhere else would be great for her career.

Cesaro - This guy is way too talented to just be stuck in a tag team that doesn't ever do anything interesting or entertaining.

Gallows & Anderson - What these guys have to do on TV is a joke.

Sanity - Use them or lose them WWE.

The IIconics - Admittedly, this is just to get them off WWE TV.

Tyler Breeze - He was my favorite act in NXT and then got to WWE and nothing happened.

It's a balancing act. We'd all love to see under-pushed talent from WWE shining in another promotion. But if AEW want to present themselves as a fresh alternative, they can't load their roster up with WWE jobbers. A promotion filled with Tye Dillingers is unlikely to explode either commercially or critically.

I'd say they should focus on picking up some wrestlers that smart fans tend to love already, but who have been going under the radar due to bad booking or lack of television time. The Revival are the most obvious signees in WWE. Cesaro is just a body on the roster in WWE, but he could become a headline star in a new promotion without much trouble. Samoa Joe would be another fine choice. And there are a whole host of talented performers from NXT that they could look to steal, who came up through the indies and don't yet have WWE midcard-for-life stink on them.

I'm sure they'd love to grab a couple of main event names too, and Styles would be the pick of the lot. His contract is due to come up soon, and though I don't think they'll manage to sign him, it would be massive for them if they could. Nakamura and Balor are other names that I could see doing a lot better in AEW than in WWE.

I guess The Revival asked for their release. If that's the case I would assume that they will sign with AEW soon depending on how WWE reacts. We may get another Neveille-esque situation.
