AEW Revolution is going to be a big pay-per-view, and not just because of the matches. All Elite Wrestling has been teasing the appearance of a mystery signee, and while we’re unsure of who it may be, Tommy Dreamer believes he could be some big names.
Speaking during the latest episode of SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, Dreamer gave his prediction on who it could be, and who he would choose if the choices were between CM Punk or Brock Lesnar. “Punk is the anti-hero and I think for that AEW audience, would fit in,” he said. “Tony Khan has, I don’t know, but I believe he has endless reserve. Punk did the UFC thing and was a draw for that, even a draw in loss. You’re asking me a straight up opinion, I pick Punk, you know why? Because Punk can not only walk the walk, he can talk the talk. I don’t know if Brock, without Paul Heyman, can talk that talk.”
Dreamer went on to say that Heyman was also doing some real-life managing behind the scenes to help Lesnar out as well, which is something that might hinder him elsewhere. “Who you going to put with Brock to cut those promos? Not saying that Brock can’t talk, but there’s this presence about Brock and Brock is silent but deadly. So, is it going to be, you then put Brock with Taz? Then Taz is going to look like a bite off of Paul.”
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer to see who the mystery signee is, as AEW Revolution will take place tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. ET.
