If (and it's a big if), they can remain impartial, and not insert themselves into the main storylines constantly, this could be good. The Bucks are Merch magicians, and Cody has a serious lineage and mind for the business.

I think for this to work, they have to stick to the All in Formula. Stay away from the gimmicks (f*ck the 6 sided ring), and all that crap. There is a genuine thirst for good pro wrestling without the tripe WWE is putting out. Hell, if they can just get the camera work correct, it'd be a huge start - i hate the epilepsy cam that WWE have adopted.

Remember when Raw was re-launched a few years back, and they experimented with new camera angles etc, left the shaky zoomy cam out? That was great.

I'd like to see them have a working relationship with the likes of Impact, ROH, NWA & NJPW.

The CW was once the original home of Smackdown when it was called UPN.


It's the 10th most watched Network in America.


It markets its shows to the young adult market.

Everything seems very silent on whether omega is joining up. I wonder if that's them trying not to ruin the main event of wrestlekingdom or he's still signed to new Japan for another year or it's them trying to work out a working agreement with them

Just thinking who are the biggest names they could potentially sign?

Punk - I'm not a huge fan myself but it would be a big signing for them if they could pull it off.

Omega - Either by getting a working relationship with NJPW or getting him to leave NJ and sign as he's mates with the bucks etc.

Jericho - Rumours that he will sign.

Styles - Supposedly his contract is up in a few months and he wants a lighter schedule. A long shot.

I saw Goldberg's name mentioned on one of the news sites


I'd love to see a list of who from the WWE will have contracts expiring in the next few months!

I can see them having a working relationship with NJPW, what with the majority of The ELITE in action @ Wrestle Kingdom 13 tomorrow morning, Cody, Kenny with their respective Championships being defended, & The Young Bucks competing in a 3 way for the IWGP Tag Team Championships.

This seems a promising thing and as it's a fresh start they have they will have the advantage if they can use it of start right and start as they mean to go on. I say that because there have been enough wrestling companies down the years and within recent times that have made stupid avoidable mistakes. It will also hinge on getting a good TV deal which has been important since wrestling was first on tv in the 1950's. I'd love for them to be members of the NWA which has had a bit of a resurrection which is good.
