Tony D’Angelo is way to normal sounding for the WWE, Gunnar Harland sounds like the name of a NHL lottery pick, Persia Pirotta is totally a 90’s porn star name, Trick Williams sounds like the name of someone who ran a kickoff back for a TD in the Gator Bowl, and Dante Chen is the most WWE sounding name of the lot.

If the lights go out at an AEW show, then a lantern lights up in the ring followed by Not Bray in his Max Cady getup saying "AEW...we're here" I wouldn't hate it.

It’ll be a candelabra, and he’s dressed like a flamboyant Dracula when the lights come on.

You can't have a candelabra and not have it be a Liberace Gimmick. Sister Abigail becomes Brother George. Everytime this new Max Cady/Liberace character does the move he looks at camera and says "I wish my brother George was here!"

I just realized that they wanted to do to Adam Cole a version of the exact thing they did to AJ Styles: pair a small wrestler up with a giant black man, only this time the small wrestler doesn't wrestle. Vince probably didn't even think about it.

Joe's relinquishing the NXT title.

Shawn Michaels copycat. More than happy to win a belt in the ring, but as soon as it's time to drop it, oh boy...

Not cleared to wrestle, apparently.

Unless he is suffering from something super debilitating, they could've worked around it.  Like have him attacked backstage but him still wanting to fight, and lose, and have him go out with a clear and obvious need for revenge on his return.

100% speculation on coming...

The way it's played out, him getting fired then rehired, not being cleared to wrestle but still wrestling, then having to vacate the title due to not being cleared... it reads to me like he never got cleared for the Kross match in the first place. Triple H just had the power to make the call to let him wrestle anyways. Because everything NXT was under his authority (contracts, creative, liabilities, ect). So this is just one more example of how Triple H may still run the day to day at NXT but he isn't in charge anymore. The corporate team (Vince, Prichard, Kahn, Laurinitus, & Dunn) are in complete control. And the NXT team (Triple H, Road Dogg, Shawn Michaels, Matt Bloom, ect) are just a creative team that have to listen to the rules set forth from above.

Corporate team finds out Joe was never cleared and they put the kibosh on that. Too much of a liability if he does get hurt. That's why they didn't do a short angle / match around whatever the issue is. They don't do that with talent that isn't cleared on the main roster. Medical calls are medical calls.

But again, this is just me speculating after seeing how it played out.
