Luke Harper, the Ascension, and Sin Cara all released. Gotta be net positives for all of them.
I don't think Luke goes to AEW, at least not yet. I think he's the type of guy that could get a lot more money on individual dates before settling down again.
Could be...but I know they haven't been shy talking about going after him, let's be honest, the biggest thing holding them back is having enough talent to show. I think they'll start spending production money once the roster really warrants it, but when one of your top of the line card draws is Jericho...that's not super ideal (mostly because of his other commitments and he isn't a long term investment).
IMO gotta get all these guys and let things start to work themselves out, right now they need depth. Sin Cara could help jumpstart a lightweight division, or put up some crazy matches with some of the younger high impact guys. Ascension would be a good splash in the tag team ranks.
Gotta get what you can for now, worry about raising the bottom talent line later.
