    This could really be a game changer for AEW's women's division if she signs there

    Yeah, prime Trish Stratus couldn't help AEW at this point if Tony remains committed to just two real women's segments a week.

    Not to mention the fact that she's still listed on WWE's internal roster.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    I don’t think we gonna know for sure until she shows in one of the companies at this point. If she did get released around the day she walked out, then we only got 60-ish days left of various news stories speculating about this to go.

    General scuttlebutt is now suggesting that Alan Angels is the latest to walk from AEW. Another blow to the Dark Order.

    Saw he was likely to stay on a pay per agreement. Anything newer than that?

    If he wasn't gonna be part of ROH, it's probably for the best. Plenty of places he could go these days and build up a bit more of a rep.

    Dark Order on its last legs. Long served its purpose unfortunately, being Brodie's legacy is keeping it alive at this point.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    Bit of a shame what’s become of the dark order. I understand not wanting to step on Brodie's legacy, but that has meant that the group has had very little direction since his passing, it was nice when they are hanging around Adam Page and I don’t really understand why that relationship had to end. He didn’t need to be their leader, but they could have done more with him after he won the world title.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    Been gone for a while but in regards to the significant departures from Impact over the last few months....

    -W. Morrissey
    -Willie Mac

    I think these are both good losses. Morrissey is a novelty and they got all the juice out of him they could. Willie Mac as someone else mentioned, just isn't performing like he used to. He's 35 and it takes a lot more conditioning to keep your body in shape at that age than 25. Even someone who has always had a charmingly modest body type.

    -Then there is The Good Brothers

    I'm a little torn by them. Obviously they are stagnant and stale and they bring the wrestling product down. They do have a lot of connections though. Now they get to walk out there to the Bullet Club music and and Impact gets to sell Bullet Club T-Shirts. On the other hand I have been wanting Impact for a while now to slim down the roster, budget cuts brother, and then reinvest into a big name star. Impact has a really talented roster right now, and someone who has goodwill with fans would really help. At this point Gargano is the only one left who could make a difference.

    -As far as the stars coming onto the market...some of those Dark Order guys might be a good fit if they wanted to expand the Decay brand.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    Anna-Jay should have been made the leader of the Dark Order. They played her up as the sort of favored acolyte anyway and it could’ve been really cool to have her both be the female leader of an otherwise male dominated faction AND help them pivot back to something somewhat more serious. Like I know doing gags helped them grow their goodwill, but Cobra in the old GI Joe cartoons had its more bumbling characters and moments while still being treated as a legitimate threat.

    I agree, Gipper. I always thought Anna would have been great to be the successor to take the lead of Dark Order.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    I'll be honest, I didn't even know who Angels was for a very long time. Without a doubt, the least memorable member of The Dark Order for me. Hell, even seeing him in person, the only way I determined that he wasn't just Stu Grayson, wearing a stupid hat, is because Stu was there too. Whenever I heard the name Alan Angels, I thought that was 10.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    I always remembered which one was Alan Angels, because my phone autocorrects Angels to Angles, and V is an acute angle, so thank goodness for geometry and the giant V on the back of his head.

    With Stu out, Alan leaving, Colt MIA, & Anna Jay seeming reverting back to her pre-Dark Order gimmick, it's kind of a bummer that the group is breaking off one by one so unceremoniously. Especially after they were so instrumental in Hangman's rise. With the way things are going, I fully expect Silver & Reynolds to split off, 10 to ditch the mask and be a midcard hoss, and for Uno to be the only one still waving the Dark Order flag by December.

    Ah, bugger it, give Uno the masked creepers back and revamp him as a singles guy doing a one-man Dark Order gimmick. I miss the Creeper Throne.

    Sounds like Io Shirai will be joining this list shortly, apparently she's out if contract this month and hasn't signed a new one.

    Re: Pro Wrestling Free Agent Thread 2022

    Jim I’m with you, I kept thinking Angels and 10 were the same person for the longest time. I feel like for -1’s sake, they’ll always keep the Dark Order around in some capacity, but with less guys. Maybe keep them as a lowest rung trios.

    Would have loved to see Io on the main roster, but it looked like that was never going to happen. She married EVIL right? So maybe she’ll head home to Japan rather than the obvious calls for her to be All Elite.

    Evil Uno leading a revamped Dark Order with some new, young guys could be a solid addition to AEWROH once that gets going on a regular basis.

    I'm going to spoiler this since it hasn't happened on television yet...

    Spoiler:

    Alan Angels appeared during Impact tapings last night and wrestled Speedball for the X-Division Championship.
