    PAC signing has my interest, have to predict he'll be their top heel. Have we got a confirmed/rumored roster yet?

    I listen to him sometimes, have to turn it off half the time if he's got his buddy on, or if he's just annoying. Sometimes he's fine, but the more you get, the more annoying he gets. at least that's what I think as stated.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling

    So Big Daddy Meltz is claiming AEW is gonna raid the Joshi scene at some point and tried to get Mayu Iwatani. I imagine most women will be falling over themselves at the chance to job to Britt Baker and Penelope Ford. In seriousness, AEW could really do WWE dirty if they manage to grab a few good ladies (not just Japanese ones) for the promotion. It's a shame this promotion wasn't formed before NXT started to take off. Would've been really interesting to see how many people stuck between joining them.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling

    Getting Mayu would be tough considering she is allegedly living with Rossy right now. Whoever's feeding Khan (or Khan feeding the others) info knows a good amount of stuff about these niche feds.

    I heard somewhere that the Bucks got 3 year offers from WWE with the same amount of pay as AJ, guaranteed main roster spots including at the Rumble, BTE being a weekly network show, & an out clause for the first 6 months that they could leave if they're unsatisfied with their push. You can't say they didn't try if true and Omega's was probably even more nuts.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling

    Ring Of Honor has also apparently paid for a three year visa for Mayu which is still in effect. And being booked in MSG, which Mayu is iirc, is hard to turn down. So that was never happening but it does say that AEW are willing to look outside of the box for talent, if OWE being a factor didn't already. That should be something to look out for.

    The WWE offer blows my mind. I think it may be somewhat embellished, given the Bucks' history but it must have been hard to turn down. WWE pulling all the stop to try and sign these guys.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling

    I think they should have offered whatever it took to sign the Bucks and Omega and nip this thing in the bud before it starts. Even if you have to make them blow away highest paid stars in the company and the keys to the castle for a year or 2, it would result in so many less headaches in the long run especially if the plan for wrestler healthcare come to pass. (I was hopeful at first, though much more skeptical after Khan's non-communal answer at the conference)

    Can't wait for T-Hawk to sell out All In 2!

    For real, AEW should try and get some people from Ice Ribbon and Sendai.

    T-Hawk has never drawn a half empty building unlike Omega at all 3 of his US shows this year as champion so that's something.

    I hope AEW signs ASUKA.

    Probably because T-Hawk has never been able to get himself in a position to actually draw more than Omega


    ASUKA is leaving WAVE and so is Rina Yamashita so it can happen. I'm guessing both going to Nanaedlinnng?

    Except when he set the record for a company in his first title challenge a week ago. And he will break more records in AEW along with his famous Good Hearts stable.

    I just want to see how many AEW fans sell shock and confusion and what kind of comments we see when they're informed of what ASUKA's packing. (She primarily wrestles in W-1 & Zero1 with Hana more than Sead, Rina almost certainly is going there though. Even Khan & his cronies probably didn't fall so far to get WAVE Network.)

    ewww, wtf Knew that guy was icky.

    That out clause at six months would of been a really dodgy thing to include in a contract, just imagine if they went there with no intention to stay beyond 6 months so you bring them in to work rumble and mania season, give them a big push out the gate, make them more famous than they are now, they get friendly with even more of the boys and girls in the back who might be looking to leave themselves.......and they just leave anyway to start up their new fed. Really could of blown up in their face.

    But yeah, they really tried their hardest to get them. I think Bucks would of been a no-go because they had executive positions held in AEW that come with full health insurance.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Dunno what the deal is with Mayu living with him but doubt they are fucking. We all know she was Rossy's least favourite rookie and part of threedom. Plus, she's not his type. Starlight Kid is probably his type seeing as he loves to put her and her similar aged colleagues in jack off photobooks.

    They drew 10k to a non WWE event. I would imagine that's a big deal. WWE probably wanted them and Cody to stop AEWs formation and shit.

    In terms of merch, maybe but I'd say it's more to do keeping them so they can't do damage elsewhere.

    Sign them, take them away from the companies that need them, pull a Woken Matt with them to kill what people liked about them. Job done.
