1. The Elite Coming In
It’s the biggest rumour of every year that Kenny Omega and chums will be trading in their New Japan contracts for a spot in NXT or WWE. This year the rumours are even more intense than usual due to a number of factors.
Take your pick from WWE wanting to prevent another All In to WWE wanting to hurt New Japan and ROH by plucking the top ready-made North American stars to the fact the Elite have collectively said they will stick together and will be making a big decision on their future in early 2019.
Of course the talk of the town is that the group are going to form their own full-time wrestling promotion, AEW, but a big enough money offer from WWE – who let’s face it, could pay them all $10 million a year each and not even notice – could yet tempt them to change their minds,
Seeing how this situation plays out will be one of the most intriguing stories of 2019.
