The Future of Professional Wrestling: Examining AEW’s Star-Studded Roster

30. Shawn Spears (formerly known as Tye Dillinger)

A former NXT fan favorite, Spears is hoping to forge a bigger role as one of the newest members of AEW’s growing roster. Spears had reached a stand-still working the “Perfect 10” gimmick on the WWE’s main roster, and didn’t seem to be part of the organization’s long-term plans — although his wife, The IIconics’ Peyton Royce, still works for the company. Spears has always been a good hand in the ring, and he seems to be coming into his own as a character during his current run.

29. Private Party — Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen

AEW was expected to have a strong tag team division, but few could have predicted a pair of 20-somethings would be the most exciting pair of the lot. Kassidy, 22, and Quen, 25, got their start as a duo in 2015, and have been pure entertainment ever since. The high-flying tandem bring a youthful energy to the brand and will only get better from here on out.
