@cattlebattle: I think WWE has been in the “sign everyone” mode for awhile now. Not saying that’s a direct result of AEW but there are way more independent options for guys now than there have ever been.
@dernman: I think the era of the big man/monster is coming to an end. Current WWE has some big guys with Lesnar, Strowman, Lashley and a few others but most of the rest are all that smaller type guy you mentioned. Of course you’ve got a few guys in between those 2 classes like Sheamus, Cesaro and McIntyre as well.
