For all the talk about AEW relying on WWE retreads, I was blown away by how much younger talent was showcased on this week's Dynamite.
So how many future world champs did you see on Dynamite this week?
I saw 4 definites: Hangman, MJF, Wardlow, & Tay Conti
2 Likely: Darby & Hobbs
3 Maybes: Ricky Starks, Jungle Boy & Scorpio Sky (sorry Ethan Page, not seeing it with you)
And 1 long-term project who has the charisma & sports credibility in Anthony Ogogo.
It feels to me very much like the 97-98 period when WCW & WWF were bursting at the seams with younger talent. Up to AEW to capitalize of course, but it certainly feels like the pieces are on the board now.
Tay Conti did a BIG rating and she’s a star. They’ve done a hell of a job with her and Darby in particular.
