• WWE Planning To Expand Their Roster, More Big Things Coming
With WWE signing $2 Billion+ deals for RAW & SmackDown Live (combined) with NBCUniversal and FOX, WWE is planning to do some big things in 2019.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE is planning to expand their roster by acquiring as many Indy wrestlers as possible. With a huge amount of money coming their way, WWE can even acquire the talent that don’t interest them much (just so WWE can take them off the Indy market and hurt their competition eventually).
Another plan that WWE has is to open more WWE Performance Centers around the World and open more International territories (like NXT UK).
Top Indy star WALTER is a name that WWE wants to sign, but he has noted in the past that he doesn’t want to be away from home.
Because of this, WWE officials wouldn’t have wanted to sign him in the past, but now WWE officials are open to signing him to a WWE NXT UK type deal where he can still work for his home promotion in Germany (wXw) while working for WWE.
