they didn't have to. They have $500 million cash reserves and giant TV deals. They chose to. If they were losing money, it would be very different. This is not a restaurant with no cash reserves not being able to keep its waiters/chiefs/waitresses. https://t.co/OpAxM58d5K

If AEW was smart it would not just start signing WWE rejects.

 

It’s already showcasing C-level Matt Hardy and Luke Harper in prominent positions. 
 

If they bring in Eric Rowan and Elias and promote them as better than homegrown talent it will start to become TNA. 

 

 

Matt Hardy is C level?

 

Let me know when anyone in AEW not named Chris Jericho gets over as much as Matt Hardy

Lots of people getting let go at #WWE today and regrettably, I am one of them. But I'm proud of the work I've been able to do since starting in Dec., and glad that the storyline I worked on resonated with so many people. That's what writing is about for me. #OtisandMandyForever

Damn... there goes the writer behind one of the few entertaining storylines in recent memory.

Matt Hardy had the biggest pop in wrestling in the last 5 years when he returned at Wrestlemania with his brother.

lmao - aside from the NXT vs Raw & Smackdown led by the NXT invasion of SD last November (which itself was a last-minute audible due to Saudi Shitshow clusterfuckery), Otis & Mandy is the only good, fun, engaging, and entertaining storyline WWE has had in what...years?

Damn. What a day.

Rockstar Spud I hope goes to AEW but in his TNA character/role. Sidekick/Manager. He was outstanding that role.

Karl Anderson is the only one of the names released officially so far that I would want in AEW. Grizzled veteran role for him.

I don't know that I necessarily want them in AEW, but I'd love to see Spud and EC3 get signed somewhere together.
