Just finished this week's NXT on my DVR. I love Matt Riddle, and I love what he's done in NXT, but I get the sneaking suspicion that if he's ever “promoted” from that show, he'll be jobbed into oblivion, become Elias' wacky tag team partner, or some other waste of his talent.
Then I dream about Matt Riddle in AEW. Chris Jericho can cut a believable promo on a DRONE. Can you imagine the wacky, wonderful bullshit that would take place if Jericho and Riddle got to play in the AEW sandbox for four months?
If you could airlift five NXT talents to AEW, who would you pick? I'd go Riddle, Keith Lee, Johnny Gargano, Candice LaRae and Io Sharai to shore up their women's division. Thoughts?
Adam Cole is a no brainer. Gargano and Ciampa for sure. Maybe Fish and O’Reilly as well.
