    If AEW could work something out with Impact, then they could potentially also get wrestlers like Johnny too many last names, Tessa Blanchard, LAX, Rosemary, Brian Cage, Taya Valkyrie, etc to appear as well.

    Great. We have have Johnny Elite debut.

    I think a lot of wrestling companies tend to be far less generous loaning out main eventers though once one or both parties get PPV and TV deals. Unless they do some sort of invasion thing.

    That said, if AEW can even pull off half the things they are promising while continuing to stay in business, I think the real losers there are ROH and Impact. Talent will probably be abandning ship left and right if they can.

    graves is the best color guy the E has. but just straight up comms? mauro by a mile. i mean, cole can be good but vince is too much in his ear a lot of the time. phillps is only average. he doesn't fuck up but there is really nothing very impressive about him. byron is nothing. and rene is still a bit too green to do comms in the front.

    mauro is great because of not only his knowledge of wrestling but his excitement. you really feel how hype he gets when he calls a good match. i mean there is a reason fans chant "mamma mia" when something awesome happens in NXT.

    Graves is ok. He can be annoying when being over the top and argumentative. I like Nigel McGinnis more as a color guy than Graves.

    I think the only announcers that can move a meter a tick for interest is JR and the King. Maybe Joey.

    And that's a tick. Nothing enough to matter.

    CM PUNK. Not going to happen but damn that would be the biggest shot fired.

    Jay Lethal. It's time to move on from ROH. Jay Lethal is a talent that deserves a bigger spotlight.

    Willie Mack. To me , the guy just has IT.

    Pentagon. I have zero faithon the WWE using him correctly.AEW seems to be his best shot to get to higher status.

    Fenix. See Pentagon.

    Women: Tessa, Rosemary,Ivelisse, and Taya.

    Nick Aldi's aka Magnus. Got the look, the gab, and the belt.
    Eli Drake. Has the mouth to put butts in seats.
    Getting Tessa will be difficult. She signed a 3 year deal with Impact.

    it's hard to find a right balance between the comms guy and color guy in the E. put mauro and corey on the same team and you got magic.

    I think thats sort of the model for a good heel color guy. Ventura, Heenan, King, JBL... they were all a bit over the top and argumentative with their face broadcast partner.

    The King wasn't really argumentative. A lot of his stuff was mean spirited jokes and brown nosing. He wouldn't get into fights with JR.

    JBL during his first run on commentary would outright bury Michael Cole. If he had it his way Cole wouldn't get a word in.

    NXT Graves was excellent but WWE Graves can be unbearable at times when he's over the top and argumentative but I blame that on Vince. Having Graves argue with Renee over Ambrose has been absolutely horrible and should never have happened or even continue.

    If I'm AEW ...I try and bring in Joey Styles. Its insane to think Styles who can still be the best play by play announcer is sitting at home due to a bad Trump joke where he went too extreme (the grab line ). Its wild that Styles still gets punished for that line while Hogan as we know did his rant and is back with WWE. So its time for AEW or at least Impact to bring him in to announce.

    Whoever they bring in is fine with me for the most part as long as it's a two man booth.

    I didn't watch All In. Who did the announcing for that? Because its possible they would use the same announce team for the next one.

    They used the RoH commentary team plus Don Callis.

    Nevermind then. They probably won't use those guys as they are now officially competitors. I guess they'll have to start from scratch.
