“I’ll say one thing, it’s one of my all-time favorite wrestlers. I tipped this on AEW Unrestricted [podcast], I said the gender is a male. He’s coming, he’s going to do great things for us, he’s committed, he’s going to sign a contract on Sunday at Revolution on pay-per-view.

“We’re going to have all these great matches, and also we’ll have this big news coming out of the show. Mark, I know you’ll be very excited. I think it’s going to be really cool.”

Of course, the guesses are unlimited. After Big Show transitioned from WWE to AEW, there’s no telling who the next pro-wrestler will be. In fact, some fans have been guessing that it’s Brock Lesnar.

The WWE Universe will be in a world of shock if it is, in fact, The Beast Incarnate.

The transitions that shocked the wrestling industry

The two transitions that shocked the WWE Universe were Sting and Big Show.

Sting debuted in December 2020 on an episode called ‘Winter is Coming’. He chose AEW because Tony Khan and co. promised him better screen timings, better matches, and to use his capacity to the maximum.

Another reason he shifted to AEW is because he knew the dream match against The Undertaker was not a possibility anymore.

Coming to Big Show, he debuted recently, and it shocked everybody. Nobody expected Big Show to turn his back on WWE, but he did.

While it’s true that AEW has a long way to go before becoming a giant in an industry like professional wrestling, the company is working at an accelerated rate. Tony Khan has been working constantly to sign on new talents or getting legends from other companies.

It doesn’t seem like AEW will slow down. With Chris Jericho working all the time to push the talents forward and Khan working relentlessly to continue signing on talent, the duo are making sure All Elite Wrestling becomes a behemoth in the wrestling industry.
