Who should WWE sign?

Who do you want to see signed by WWE? I mainly made this thread because I don't watch any Indy wrestling so I want to see if there is a wrestler I don't know of that is WWE material.

Shelton Benjamin - one of my favourites during his WWE run. So athletic.

Kaval/Low Ki - he has such a unique ring style and I think he could have gotten super over based on his in-ring work alone. I always wanted to see a Mysterio vs. Low Ki match.

Robert Roode -has everything needed to make it in WWE.

Kurt Angle - I hope his career ends in WWE. I feel like he has wasted prime years in TNA but I guess the reduced schedule makes him happy.

AJ Styles - his height might hold him back though.

Konnan - as a manager

I always loved RVD. I know he doesn't want to leave his wife it would be great to see him come back.

They're wasting his and their own time if they sign him. He's great and all, but they have nothing for him... they've tried him twice and nothing has come from it. Unless they were to bring back the Cruiserweight title or something, he'd have nothing for a while.

Roode just resigned with TNA so he's pretty much off the market....

would be interesting if they were to sign more ROH talent...

Would be pretty hard to bring Low Ki back after his last stint. Low Ki's idea of what "wrestling" should be is very different to how WWE presents "wrestling". In Japan is right where he belongs.

I would say they should sign The Briscoes but they'd have to neuter their persona's and then they wouldn't really be The Briscoes, and knowing WWE they'd get a two month run together then split up and one of them would end up future endeavoured while the other spent a few years jobbing.

Would love to see Steen get signed also but again you'd have to tone him down a lot and then he wouldn't really be Steen.

Rather than Shelton they'd be better off getting Kenny King who is Shelton but actually with some charisma.

Angle, loved him as the Olympian. One of my all time favorite heels. He's up there in age but can really still go.
Sting...sorry, as old as he is I just need to see him at Wrestlemania

Styles
Roode
Aries

Roode could be a main eventer in WWE and Styles/Aries would be phenomenal fringe guys to push the upper mid card/non title main event guys.

Kevin Steen and let him be Steen.

Doubt WWE would, but one can dream.

Kurt Angle-If even for just one final run to put guys like over like Y2J does. Angle vs. Bryan, Angle vs. Punk, Angle vs. Cesaro, etc. would all be epic.

Shelton Benjamin-One of my favorite guys to watch. Athletic as hell and the potential is there.

Loved Angle when he was that annoying heel. The three 'I's'.

AJ Styles. One of the best wrestlers out there. He's older so they'd have to give him a big time angle to work right away. His in-ring ability would get him over immediately.

To me, Shannon Moore always came off as a guy that was good in the ring but was terrible outside of it. Even in backstage skits while he's in the background, he just always looked so uncomfortable. But this is based on what I've seen of him from 2000-2003 or so, so I don't know if he has improved.

No, so they can tag together and perhaps do something with the division!! There's 1 belt in the company that has any meaning now, and about 5 people that go for it..

I'd also like to see WWE get:
Alex Shelley (and eventually Chris Sabin)
Petey Williams
Matt Barela (Anarquia)
Deuce N' Domino
Amazing Red
Mr. Aguila (Essa Rios)

Basically, re-invent the Cruiserweight division (max. 220lbs), pick up a big guy, and bring back a great tag team.
