Wade Keller claimed on his podcast today that AEW is in talks to buy out CM Punk's contract so he will not be returning.

Which is why Tony's bringing in the likes of Punk, Christian, Saraya to try to expand their audience. Once they've done their role by bringing in more viewers there's more chance they could stick around to see say MJF, Jade etc.
A few is fine, but diminishing returns.

They've done this way too much and it's hurting them.

When AEW started out the roster was very bare bones, so there was a need to pad it out and upgrade the level of talent too (which isn't a knock on the AEW originals since in most instances they have flourished).

Tony also has to fill out the ROH roster too so some guys and girls will go there. But I do get your point Oce and I've made it myself that ex NXT signings are taking spots on the card that AEW originals should have. However seems TK goes by algorithms and such with how he books and no doubt TNT/TBS want certain wrestlers featured too. It's just finding the right balance and with Hunter running things in WWE it's like a lot of guys and girls will jump back over anyway. Especially Adam Cole as he's a favourite of HBK/HHH.

Apparently Bobby Fish got caught trying to recruit people back to WWE.
