RIP Mene Gene

Also AEW sounds very intriguing, especially with the backing of a billionaire. Hope they can nab some unhappy talent from WWE. This will only help improve all of the feds

Billy Corgan owns NWA, and they have started pop-up shows this year. With David Arquette.

That all sounds like some weird acid trip but it’s true:

TNA don't have the cash AEW has neither does WWE.
They could buy both actually and are likely to start with TNA.

WWE is rolling in cash even before the massive tv deal with fox. And WM will bring in more money than all of AEW shows combined will this year.

McMahon is a billionaire with so much money he can attempt the XFL again.

TNA also had a crap load of money years ago until the owner finally have up on it.

It's good for wrestlers if what they are saying is true. But it's got a loooong way to go before being a threat to wwe

Who cares AEW owners have more money.

It's not long for the threat of AEW snagging Wwe wrestlers when there contracts run out. Some big names still haven't resigned and Jericho said he would never go against Vince.

Money talks...

He said he wouldn't blindside Vince.

And he didn't as they knew he was signing. Hardly any of the owners money is going into this. Other wise that press conference wouldn't have felt so low budget.

Think he meant WWE wrestlers who haven't signed new contracts yet.
Ah yeah. If they can get some of the more interesting mid carders to sign with AEW I'm definitely more intrigued. PAC (Neville) is a great sign as well, really loved that dude, especially during NXT.

Omega is the top rated most wanted wrestler in the world.
Goldberg(rumor)
Jericho
Whispers of CM Punk
Jim Ross

Off the top of my head.

Actually heard him say something along the lines of not working NA vs Vince when he showed up in IWGP.

I meant like actual free agents. Goldberg sounds very intriguing, do you know of any expiring WWE contracts that could be coming up that they could possibly pull in? I don't pay much attention to this stuff.

Any of the upcoming expiring contracts are possible.
They are offering more money so who knows?

Shinseki,AJ Styles and Brock Lesner have contracts expiring i think?

Goldberg seems like a waste of money, he can't perform anymore and he'd just be made to look strong over guys who can actually go.

Well yeah from a pure talent standpoint he's not amazing, but he could be a big draw for ratings alone. Want to see good wrestling, but they need star power too.
