I agree with others here, too much too soon. That said, of the two, Rory makes a bit more sense as he's intentionally removed from title contention and so doesn't really have the upward trajectory. This would really just be a big step down for Maia.
I don't love Alves fighting another wrestler. Silva could be fun, Kos is definitely interesting. Does Hardy have a fight scheduled yet? That could be an interesting test on both sides.
