One thing is for sure about the WWE, they want to ensure that no matter what they maintain the most powerful roster in professional wrestling today.
With current stars such as Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Daniel Bryan, and so many more on their roster; WWE is undoubtably the biggest star-driven professional wrestling empire on the planet today - and there isn't even a close second.
All that being said, WWE may have the most stacked roster in wrestling today, but they don't have all of the industry's biggest stars.
There are plenty of high-profile stars in the game that are currently signed to other promotions. Kenny Omega, for example, is arguably the biggest professional wrestling star on the planet right now, and he's signed to New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Cody Rhodes is also one of the bigger names in the industry, after leaving WWE and reinventing himself, and is currently locked up with Ring Of Honor (ROH).
The Young Bucks, brothers Nick and Matt Jackson, are also huge in the professional wrestling world, and are one of the most over tag teams the industry has ever seen.
All four of these men have been linked to rumors of a WWE move, but nothing has ever been made official throughout the years.
According to a report from Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, however, WWE could be interested in bringing in three of these men in the future when their contracts expire.
Meltzer noted that WWE could look into bringing back Cody Rhodes and also bringing on The Young Bucks to help bolster their tag team division (quotes via NoDQ.com):
“The reason [indie wrestling] got so strong is because it is a star-driven business.
"If that star power leaves, if they get hurt, if the go to WWE and there’s no replacements it could make a big difference.
“Some of these guys are not easily replaceable as far as the star power goes. WWE’s going to be after all of them. So that’s the situation.
"I’ll tell you what as far as Cody and The Young Bucks go, I don’t know how long Cody’s contract is but obviously the Young Bucks’ contract ends at the end of this year.
“But they’re sure in great shape as far as when their contracts are up.
"They can probably get themselves a nice raise right now if it’s a contract year because this is a pretty good time to look like stars and that’s what it’s all about."
