Yeah, this is a outlandishly stacked card. It’s almost too much really.

WWE has opened several portals to good times. The releases/not resigning they’ve been doing is helping AEW and the other companies get more decently trained talent on their rosters all up and down the card. It is a net gain for rasslin that WWE isn’t holding every decent worker hostage just to stop them from being elsewhere. They might even be going a bit far with it. But no matter. I stand by the idea that more people watching rasslin anywhere ultimately helps WWE so it’ll be fine. I feel the same way about other companies getting their feds together. More good stuff all around can help motivate WWE to get/keep their shit together too. I like it all. I’m afraid/petrified about NXT but I will survive.

I think they are gonna debut at least 3 folks tmrw. I’m guessing we get Ruby, Bryan, and at least one more person. Could be several folks really. Cole seems like the clear one who could show up and help Kenny or the Bucks retain.

I am VERY interested in seeing how they order this card. I’m guessing Punk goes on first..especially if they’re going to keep it quickish for his first match back. I have no idea when they have Jericho go on. HE could go on last to make people think he’s gonna lose for sure. I’m guessing he wins in some unclean manner.
