Since its inception, AEW has mastered the concept of surprise debuts. From Jon Moxley and Jake Hager to FTR and Sting, AEW has offered fans the opportunity to witness a plethora of amazing debuts.

This Sunday, fans will witness yet another scenario, but we cannot wrap our heads around who this superstar will be. On the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Tony Khan said, “There’s one nobody knows about.

“There’s 5 names, and of course, there’s the one nobody knows. You’ve named Cody Rhodes, Max Caster, Scorpio Sky, Penta El Zero Miedo, and Lance Archer, but we have not named the 6th competitor, the 6th wrestler who will be named at the pay-per-view.

“Last night, Paul Wight told you that you’re not going to be the only one with the scoops around here anymore, and he’s gonna break some scoops too.

“He told the world, and it’s true that there’s going to be a big star signed with AEW. And he’s coming here, and it’s absolutely true what Paul said.

“This Sunday a major star in the world of wrestling, a huge, huge star is going to come and sign a multi-year contract with AEW on Sunday at the pay-per-view.”

Both Paul Wight and Tony Khan’s statements have got fans wondering about the entity that will feature in the ladder match at Revolution.

Whoever it is, will they be able to overcome the likes of veterans like Cody Rhodes, Penta, Scorpio Sky, and Lance Archer?

Who can this ‘huge superstar’ be?

On Dynamite, Paul Wight claimed this superstar is a Hall of Fame-worthy talent. There aren’t a ton of free agents that might be considered ‘Hall of Fame worthy’, but let’s weigh out AEW’s options.

As of this moment, Brock Lesnar is a free agent. The Beast Incarnate has not worked since WrestleMania 36 and might be on the hunt for a great opportunity, and of course, one that pays well.

CM Punk hinted at a return to wrestling when Steven Amell posted a picture of them after training. Punk hasn’t wrestled in 7 years, but he might be itching to return to find his way back to the ring.

An unorthodox guess for the match would be the World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry. In a recent interview, Henry claimed he’s in shape to fight and wants to return to the ring.

These three names are huge enough to break the internet and set AEW for the rest of 2021. But who will it be?
