My guess is the theme of the next set will be determined by what newly signed wrestlers they want to include in the next set sort of like the Rock N Roll Express helped determine the theme of the set released in December and Tully Blanchard and Barry Windham helped determine the theme of the set released last month.
I would like to see a 1980s WWF, AWA, or ECW/hardcore set at some point.
This is 100% what I assumed was happening, and makes total sense. We have so many big names that have been signed and have yet to receive the color treatment that 1-2 new signings can easily decide the theme for a set, allowing the LOW team to use previously signed wrestlers to "fill in" the rest of the set to fully realize the theme. It's really a pretty perfect way to do things.
Glad to hear there is a lot of effort going into new signings. I can't wait to hear the names as they are announced.

I'm glad to hear people are enjoying Expansion Set II and are excited for the next set. Looking over the 2018 signees in Philly and Vegas, I think we have a lot of directions we can go. The hard part will be deciding which area to spotlight. It's a great "problem" to have!

I am always excited for a new set. I like that we get a nice mix of colourized versions of the existing roster as well as new signings to keep it fresh and exciting.

Staying with the British theme (going off Indy set) how about one day a British legends set ?
WCW (Legends) Feud Wildfire Tommy Rich v C.W Anderson /// Evolve The Detectives v (Tag Chs) Bravados \\\ Chikara (Ch) Eddie Kingston v Mr M80 Marshe Rocket /// JAWA X-Division Match (Ch) Austin Aries v Ricky Starks v Dirty Andy Dalton \\\ GWF (I-P Ch) The Guardian v Alpha Female /// twitter @basnettdavid1
If enough classic wrestlers got signed, it would be awesome. I really would love Kendo Nagasaki, Rollerball Rocco Jim Breaks (obviously) and even Kung Fu in the game and for historic reasons, Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks as well.
So in all reality, we already have Saint, Finlay, Taylor, Street... plus a case could be made for some older vintage wrestlers who did enough world travel (HAckenschmidt has huge ties to the early days of British wrestling)... So it'a not entirely an impossibility, I would think... And I agree completely with Troy's list, though I would personally also add Mick McManus and Johnny Kwango
