The Lex Luger on the first Nitro moment. Some say CM Punk, some say Jim Cornette. Cornette has been cutting heel promos on his podcasts against AEW for months. I would like to see Corny as an oldschool asshole heel. He can lead an oldschool heel faction.

Tommy Dreamer - Kinda doesn't count though. Tommy is the Samuel L. Jackson of pro wrestling - he shows up everywhere.

If AEW have an ace in the hole, they need to advertise. The first Nitro was unopposed, so having Luger as a surprise worked because there was no other wrestling to watch that night. If CM Punk turned up unannounced tomorrow night, they will have missed out on a big chunk of the audience. If they have him and announce him, they will win the ratings war tomorrow night.

Everyone expecting Punk is going to be sorely disappointed. He’s given less than zero indication that he’s interested in AEW and has made them look bad for chasing him. He has a better chance of going back to WWE and being a surprise on Smackdown.

Oh yeah, and how many names are left that could surprise us? The only ones I can think of are Japanese because most of the US "names" are under contract already. I expected Gallows and Anderson but they re-signed a couple months back.

There's a rumour out there that Jack Swagger will show up for AEW. That might be best left as a surprise, because that's a reason not to watch for me. Not that Swagger is so awful, but I'd rather watch anyone on NXT than Swagger.

Cass is worthless. The smallest looking 7 footer ever who can’t work or talk. The only one with value is Enzo and that’s as a manager, not as a wrestler. If they figure that out and Enzo can keep his shit together, they might have something.

To paraphrase Bret Hart, rossi, who are you to doubt Eli Cottonwood? Cass at least has some competition.

Not sure what aspirations they would still have in wrestling but Damien Sandow in some form might have a spot from his Cody affiliation in the past. Others in that same boat who fell out of favor might include Alex Riley, Brad Maddox, Wade Barrett, Rycklon Stephens and Emma. Their outside interests may have allowed them to move past wrestling, but all of them could certainly come in to. some degree and I wouldn't be shocked.

Don't know if he under contract but  Damien Sandow is in the NWA. He was at the first TV tapings.

The NWA doesn’t typically have exclusive contracts, but the issue is that AEW wants them. All the indy guys have been having their “farewell matches” these past 2 weeks. I don’t blame AEW as they’ll never seem major league if half their talent keeps doing indy dates.

I would at least since they are doing "TV" that they are under some contract. Can do Indys but not someones TV.  Be dumb to put someone on your tv show and not have one.

Will it really even be a big deal if there are no surprise appearances? I know everyone is thinking Lex Lugar at the first Nitro, but there are fewer major stars in the business now than at any time in recent memory. Anyone less than a major star as a surprise will seem underwhelming at best and come across as minor league.
