All Elite Wrestling

Ever since the closure of WCW, the world of professional wrestling had been monopolised 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.


Inception

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 mega stars, 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.


All Elite Wrestling

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.


All Elite Wrestling Team

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, 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 are established businessmen in their own right and will look at bringing

their know how to take All Elite Wrestling to the next level.


The Roster

All Elite Wrestling already has a stacked roster 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.


Double or Nothing

Double or Nothing will be the first event from AEW Wrestling which is being described as the follow

up to All In, scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was

first announced during an episode of Being The Elite, which is a YouTube show that the Young Bucks

have made famous. Interestingly, two other trademarks that All Elite Wrestling has filed are Tuesday

Night Dynamite and AEW All Out.
