Some new names. AEW has had a lot of success during its existence and quite a bit of that has been due to their roster. The company has been able to keep things fresh by bringing in a variety of different wrestlers, many of whom you might have seen before. That was the case this weekend, as AEW brought in three new names, all ow whom you are probably familiar with in some way.
There were three new debuts Sunday night at Double Or Nothing. First up, Stokely Hathaway, formerly known as Malcolm Bivens in NXT, debuted in the Jade Cargill vs. Anna Jay match, with Hathaway seemingly siding with Cargill. After the match was over, Athena, better known as Ember Moon in WWE, debuted and confronted Cargill. Later in the show, a segment showed Andrade El Idolo in an office. El Idolo introduced his new business associate, former Ring Of Honor World Champion Rush, who seemed to be part of the Andrade Family Office.
Opinion: These debuts are the kind of things that you need to see happen every now and then, just for the sake of bringing in some fresh blood. What matters is that these are names that you have probably seen before but are still fresh enough to matter in AEW. Hopefully they all do well, as they could be quite the additions to the company in a variety of ways.
What do you think of the debuts? Which has the brightest future? Let us know in the comments below.
