The promotion came about in a hurry, flowing organically from the All In wrestling event promoted by the same men, Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks. But as compelling as their story is, that's not what this slideshow is about.

Within a short period of time after the AEW announcement, some high profile WWE stars requested a release from their contracts, and there are others rumored to be considering doing the same thing.
Right now, Dash and Dawson, known collectively as the Revival, are the poster children for this movement. Fortunately for WWE, there are things they can do to keep their talent happy and prevent them leaving for perceived greener pastures.

#1 Rebuild the tag team division into something meaningful again
Over the years, there has been a slow, steady decline in the WWE's tag team division.
Once a prestigious division that launched the career of many major stars, such as Bret the Hitman Hart, the tag team division has become a mere shadow of itself.
Tag team wrestling had been hot for many years. Perhaps it reached a crescendo during the Attitude Era when the Hardys, Edge and Christian, and the Dudleys all set the world on fire with their TLC matches.
However, the tag titles have slowly lost their meaning over time until many fans don't know exactly who the champions even are.
If WWE wants to keep their talent happy, rebuilding the tag team division is a great place to start. After all, you can involve more wrestlers in the same angle, and provide a platform for performers to gain recognition and momentum.
It would also make the current tag teams feel more like they are contributing to the program instead of just spinning their wheels.
