With the recent issues surrounding the AEW locker room, with morale all over the place, loyalty concerns with Triple H's rise to power in WWE, and some guys on a bloated roster not getting proper TV exposure, you'd think the solution is do your best to satisfy guys with stronger, consistent pushes (See: Miro and Andrade, also would've added Black to this, but, you know). Instead, two marquee matches are given to talent not signed to AEW, and this is far from the first time we've gone down this road. You have a roster of 130-140 people, and you're filling your flagship show with guys who aren't under contract? That's certainly a choice.
Counterpoint: Juice Robinson and Bandido are awesome and having Robinson on the show gets me closer to my dream of a tag team with him and Orange Cassidy.
