Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics is predicting a 3-5 times TV rights increase of their current $44m

Worst case scenario, Tony will just need to cut back and we'll see more of the traditional homegrown AEW style roster like in the beginning.

That would be best, honestly. Get away from WWE style anglemania. Be different.

Battle of the Belts was a really good show. I'm starting to think Jamie Hayter needs to be the one that beats Jade.

Jamie has the IT factor more than anyone else on that roster right now, to be honest. With a little more backing she could be HUGE.

Dave Meltzer wrote:Right now there is a ton of backstage drama involving many of the top guys that has gotten much worse in recent weeks. There’s a part of me where I just think Tony Khan needs to sit everyone down and air everything out before it gets worse. The big thing that started all this is that Colt Cabana is not in the Dark Order with no angle and stopped being brought to television. He was going to be cut but Khan signed him for ROH. This is really the catalyst of everything although different people have different stories as to why it happened, including Page and Punk. But even if that didn’t happen, it was probably going to happen for something else just given the nature of the different personalities involved. It feels like a number of people are close to their breaking point if things don’t get settled.

It was a wild day yesterday. (Spoiler warning)

-Tony filed a legal notice against WWE for contract tampering for trying to recruit people who left to come back.

-AEW talent was supposedly pleased with the talent meeting. But they did not address anything about CM Punk or his issues with Page and Colt.

-Eddie Kingston was suspended for taking a swing at Sammy Guevara during an argument backstage. Their planned PPV match is off.

-Thunder Rosa is rumored to be doing a Shawn Michaels because she was supposedly asked to job to Toni Storm and now is claiming an injury and allegedly the other women were mad about it. Britt's shot about working hurt as champion may have been a shoot.

-Punk was not injured. He will be on All Out for a rematch. He also gave an interview to Sports Illustrated denying reports he was unhappy.

-The plan is for Kenny Omega to return to New Japan for Wrestle Kingdom against Will Ospreay.
