  1. I’m hoping for Taeler Hendrix and/or Chelsea Green to be in it this year.

    Doubt I see Taeler, since they didn’t bring her in last year.

    I feel like Chelsea Green (Laurel Van Ness) might happen, though.

  2. Bring back Awesome Kong/Kharma!!!

  3. Hoping for Jazzy Gabert to be a last minute addition and to go all the way to the finals at the Evolution PPV. Her against a suddenly intimidated Baeszler would be great…

  4. I didn’t see the addition of Ashley (Madison) Rayne coming, just because she’s been so prominent in Impact lately- but I like it a lot! It’s going to be tough to pick a favorite to root for!

  5. I too, like the addition of Madison Rayne, and kind of hope she gets drawn to face Nicole Matthews in the opening round, so at least one of my favourites will advance.

  6. Bring back Piper Nevin!
