    WWE having winter cleaning? This is long overdue.

    He has wanted out a long time and even went back to using that name on his twitter etc.


    They likely laid out 90 day No Compete clauses so Lee won't be in AEW til Feb.

    and brodie's stems from the fact that he couldn't do a southern accent like vince wanted. let's just ignore the fact that he was the best big man on the main roster.

    He could probably start right away if he turns down the pay of the 90 day. Being a family man he likely won't.

    It really shouldn't. They have a ton of cruisers that have no place to with 205 being gone.

    NXT needs people, so raiding would just sabotage the show that you have going against the competition.

    The guy I see of value to AEW is Luke Harper.

    They would evaluate who they already have. Their roster is massive. They shouldn't have to bring anyone up to replace anybody.

    It's not JUST for the main roster though. There are a lot of people signed to NXT who aren't making it on TV. Getting people like Bazler or the Undisputed Era onto the main rosters allows them to better use new talent too..

    I think that's one of the keys to the NXT brand never getting too stale. The main eventers you have now likely won't be around in 3-4 years.

    Not to replace people, they are not using. All of those release have only had a handful of matches in the last 6 months.

    Yeah they can't keep signing and not using wrestlers forever. Even if you can afford it, that causes talent to get unhappy.

    They could call people up from NXT (they need to, NXT rosters are bloated) but they released people they weren't using anyway--and who wanted to be released.

    Of the people that wanted their release, Mike Kanellis I think was the only one that wasn't granted.

    Yeah, it would simply be a matter of WWE finally deciding to release a couple people that wanted to be released.

    I wonder if this is an indicator that WWE is maybe slightly less worried about AEW now than they might have been a few months ago. Not that they ever had a whole lot of reason to be legitimately worried in the first place.

    Actually I think we are seeing the benefit of them holding onto talent. The big criticism we are seeing of AEW among it's fanbase is "We don't know who these people are that you keep throwing into matches every week!" (Since most people don't watch all the extra online stuff) If they had more familiar names to help introduce people that would have been helpful, but as it is, they are introducing 90% new people to a bunch of casual wrestling fans they are hoping to retain.
