Could see any of Ziggler, Styles, Nakamura, Balor, Gallows and Anderson jumping ship if contracts are expiring at the right time. Not a chance WWE would grant a release to any of them though, would only happen if new deals weren’t signed. 

Styles is the only one out of those that seems like a proper mental prospect, so that would depend on if he is wanting to wind down on his career and spend more time at home with the family.

Out of that group, I can see Ziggler and Nakamura going to AEW. 

Nakamura has been a complete disappointment on the main roster (and probably most of his NXT run if we’re being honest) and doesn’t seem arsed anymore. Ziggler can go and pretend that’s he’s a big deal

As for the others, Gallows has wanted to be a WWE Superstar his whole life, the only way he’s going is if WWE release him or just don’t renew his contract. You would think they would keep Karl Anderson too as he and Gallows come as a package.

Balor does good merch numbers, as does Styles and I reckon that WWE would offer him a lighter schedule in order to keep him. If they have the money to “offer” Kenny Omega $3.5million a year, they have the money to keep Styles

I don't think Nakamura will. I'm sure I read a while back that one of the main reason he chose to go to WWE was for the easy pay check. He'd had enough of the hard hitting Japanese style and wanted something a bit easier that he could breeze through without much fuss. Hence why he seems like he's going through motions, because he is and enjoys is.

If the rumours doing the rounds about Ziggler are true, then I could see him going to AEW. I'm sure Tildeguy will confirm it.

He's also opened his own ProWrestlingTees shop: https://www.prowrestlingtees.com/nemethbros

Could only see Styles opting for a change and new challenge now he has ticked WWE off his list. Maybe the prospect of helping building a second company would appeal to him since he tried so hard in TNA and got burned by their incompetence.

On the CM Punk front: Rancid are playing the exact same night as the AEW show. So I think he could be convinced to do a signing during the day, but very slim chance of him working the show. I will also not be appearing at AEW.

I will continue to dig for unrealistic scenarios over the next few weeks and keep everyone up to date.

What's the connection there?  Is he just a fan?

He is a big fan and really good mates with Lars. When I saw Rancid play back in 2008 (maybe?) WWE were doing a house show the same night. He requested to open the show, had his match and jumped straight in a taxi to the gig and stood back of the stage.

Naturally, when I saw them all on stage together I nearly shit my skin tight tartan trousers

Ziggler means nothing these days. He won't make a difference in AEW apart from having a few solid matches.

Ziggler means nothing in WWE but the same audience that thinks Cody is a big deal, that Cody v Magnus for the NWA (lol) belt is a big main event, and that the business is about to change forever, typically also think that Ziggler has been "held down," that he's a workmate machine on a par with AJ, Tanahashi and Okada, and that he should have been champion five or six times by now. They will push him as a star regardless of how smalltime it looks to WWE fans. It's Christian to TNA all over again.

It probably has more charisma.

Needs a mate to help you carry it. The Bucks would work miracles with it just like Cody, sign it up.

Dolph Ziggler has talked up how he's unhappy and letting his contract expire every other year for his entire fucking career. He was definitely going to NJPW until he wasn't, then he was absolutely going to jump to Lucha Underground until he didn't. He'll still be complaining about being an indie darling held down by the WWE Machine, despite having wrestled nowhere else ever, in ten years' time.
