A $100 million investment is a lot of money and could attract sum big boys

A lot of guys in wwe will be keeping on eye on this organisation and might decide it's for them

Styles wwe contract is up in April and he might go too AEW for the limit schedule ??. I'd miss him in wwe

So Brandi Rhodes has been named in the Stephanie McMahon role in AEW. Let's hope she doesn't fall into the trap of claiming to have created women's wrestling from scratch.

Also they need to have a vince McMahon person in the company and they need to be be able to say no to clearly stupid ideas. For all of the bad things about vince McMahon he was the head chef in the kitchen, and he stopped the stupid crap that Russo had.

Totally agree hopefully Khan will that guy for them cause it will benefit them having ideas coming from other people other than the core group especially when it comes to a weekly tv show

I see conrad retweeting a lot of the stuff wonder if he's involved after doing starrcast at all in

And that her and Cody don't play on air heel authority figures

Supposedly JR will sign once his WWE contract expires in April. Hopefully a backstage role and he's not on commentary.

Could they bring in Eric Bischoff for the Vince McMahon role ??

Or did they see the Hogan/Bischoff led TNA a few years ago and see how much of a **** up that was

AEW could be WCW part 2 if they play there cards right. They have enough money

Christ yeah. That was my point on the previous page. They have the advantage of seeing stuff that isn't working/ hasn't worked and should avoid it. There is a place for an on air authority figure or matchmaker(in old money) but it should be like jack Tunney but with a personality.

Well yeah if it's 1993 era Bischoff where he helps with the money and spending it wisely and not late nineties where WCW was spending money like sailors on shore leave then no.

If you want to be anything fresh in 2019 the likes of Russo, Bischoff and Hogan shouldn't be even mentioned on your product.
Jim Ross on commentary is a big fat NO for me too. It's not the 1990's anymore. People are well sick of authority figures now.

Yeah attitude era Jim Ross yes, this current version(yes he's had a rough couple of years) but no he shouldn't be commentating on wrestling.

Will follow this and see where it leads but as the 3 are on air talents and calling the shots behind the scenes I’m pessimistic to say the least
