There's not much left of their already paper-thin roster. They were working with ROH when they went off the air. Will that continue? I'm guessing Thunder Rosa vs Serena Deeb will be on the first PPV.

They desperately need help from AEW and ROH, but most likely will get it from Championship Wrestling From Hollywood instead.  I expect the crew that was used on UWN Primetime to be utilized heavily to fill out cards.  And other than Chris Dickinson, no one there is worth a damn. 

But if they're not at least asking for Ricky Starks and Colt Cabana to be loaned back to them for a bit, 2 guys who mean everything to the NWA and absolutely nothing to AEW, then I honestly don't even know what the point of the "relationship" is.  Starks should job to The Pope on the PPV in a TV title match, for example.  Cabana could job to Trevor Murdoch for that other NWA title no one gives a shit about to give him some semblance of credibility. 

Of course I'm still scratching my head as to why they could never get Nick Aldis a title defense or two on Dynamite to keep the title active during this hiatus.  Aldis vs. Jungle Boy or someone would mean a lot to a kid like that and also a lot for the NWA to be on real TV again.  It's a no-brainer.  Then you come back maybe with Aldis against a great veteran who barely wrestles anymore like Christopher Daniels.  Two jobs that don't hurt AEW at all.  Hell, you could even put Billy Gunn in that spot.  I could see that main eventing any high school gym in the country the last 10 years.
