In a recent episode of the “Pro Wrestling 4 Life” podcast, Waltman took up the biggest news of the recent week. Waltman feels the signings will be best for business since both wrestlers are beloved by fans. He said,

“It’s exciting. It’s just good for everyone. It doesn’t hurt WWE, I don’t think. It definitely helps AEW. They already have some really good momentum as far as I’m concerned. It’s gonna be a f**king game-changer.”

“The difference is one is just a publicly-traded company that’s just f**king monstrous. It’s huge, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere. That’s why I don’t think this necessarily hurts them. It just helps AEW, and it f**king helps the industry.”

The fans are hoping the rumors turn true and they finally get to witness CM Punk and Daniel Bryan together. Now, if AEW can do this deal, they have a good chance of overtaking WWE in terms of ratings and popularity. A true game-changing signing is what this is.

With the joy of two big-name wrestlers coming in, the AEW fans are speculating if the current roster wrestlers might lose their shine. Waltman was asked a similar question, to which he simply said no.

He explained that if somebody is better than you, then maybe they deserve your spot. That’s how he has always felt. X-Pac helped people that were there to literally take his spot or take a bigger spot, for instance, Chris Jericho. Pac declared that in Jericho’s book, he well documented that Pac’s all about people that “deserve the spot through merit” thing.
