Ever since the closure of WCW, the world of professional wrestling had been monopolized by WWE as the clear industry leader. Many believe that All Elite Wrestling will be the first promotion since then that could potentially be a threat to WWE’s position at the very top of the professional wrestling world. From the day AEW has announced its debut, the wrestling world has always been filled with different kind of AEW news and AEW rumor which has just covered the WWE.
All Elite Wrestling is a promotion that was announced on the 1 st of January 2019 during an episode of Being The Elite. AEW Wrestling will be owned by Pakistani American entrepreneur Shahid Khan and his son, Tony Khan, both of whom are also affiliated with a variety of other sporting ventures, namely Fulham F.C., a football club that plays in the English Premier League and the Jacksonville Jaguars, an American football team that participates in the National Football League (NFL). Tony Khan and his father, Shahid Khan will be backing All Elite Wrestling with an initial investment of $100 million. Tony Khan is not just a very good friend of Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks, he has also been a lifelong professional wrestling fan.
In addition to the Khans spearheading the business, other officials were also announced for AEW Wrestling who would be in charge of different aspects of the promotion. It is no surprise that the core team from All In was brought on board to handle operations. This includes Cody Rhodes who will lend his expertise to All Elite Wrestling as the Executive Vice President and will also serve as a producer for AEW. Moreover, in another AEW news The Young Bucks were also hired by AEW Wrestling to serve as Executive Vice Presidents for All Elite Wrestling, working alongside Cody Rhodes. Finally, Brandi Rhodes was made the Chief Brand Officer for AEW Wrestling.
Cody Rhodes comes from a wrestling family and his father Dusty Rhodes was one of the greatest bookers of all time. Cody Rhodes will carry forth the legacy and wisdom of his father in AEW Wrestling. The Young Bucks have established businessmen in their own right and will look at bringing their knowledge on how to take All Elite Wrestling to the next level.
AEW Roster has already been stacked and it seems like a lot more signings will happen in the days that pass. The first lot of signings for All Elite Wrestling was announced at a press conference at TIAA Bank Field, right across the road from where SmackDown Live was being held. Perhaps their biggest signing is WWE legend Chris Jericho, who’s found his footing outside the WWE bubble, making waves in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Cody and The Young Bucks, as well as Brandi Rhodes, are obvious members of the existing roster. Some other notable names that have already come on board are Christopher Daniels, Hangman Page, Frankie Kazarian, Joey Janela, Scorpio Sky, and Pac, who was formerly known as Neville during his WWE stint. Penelope Ford and Britt Baker are the two female superstars signed to the company for now.
WWE legend Billy Gunn will be working as a producer for All Elite Wrestling and Chris Harrington will be the head of business development. This page will be updated as and when more signings happen to AEW Wrestling.
Responding to a comment made by Dave Meltzer, senior professional wrestling/mixed martial arts journalist from the Wrestling Observer, former WWE superstar Cody Rhodes and independent wrestling megastars, The Young Bucks, decided to put together an event in North America that would potentially draw 10000 fans. This is a feat that had not been achieved by any promotion except for the WWE and WCW since 1993. This event was known as All In, and it sold out in a mere 30 minutes. The actual event was a huge success as well, with fans in attendance raving about how good it was. Some of the superstars that competed at All In included Kenny Omega, Pentagon Jr., Kazuchika Okada, Marty Scurll, Fenix, Tessa Blanchard, and Chelsea Green, among others. This was the stepping stone that would, in time, lead to the formation of All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
