It was also revealed that The Elite, which consists of Cody and The Young Bucks, would be the executive vice presidents of the new promotion.
However, despite the fact that AEW has created such a big buzz in the wrestling world, the announcement of the new company is one that had WWE on notice. WWE and AEW have been raiding the independent scene to gain as many future stars as they possibly can.
With rumours of many superstars in the WWE being upset with their position in the company, here are 5 WWE superstars who may possibly jump over to AEW.
#5 Mike and Maria Kanellis
At the Money in the Bank PPV event on June 18th, 2017, we witnessed Mike Kanellis arrive at the WWE alongside his real-life wife, Maria Kanellis.
The duo was assigned to the Smackdown brand, and it seemed as if they were going to receive a big push due to the efforts that were put into their characters at first, but this wasn't the case at all.
Instead, we saw Mike only compete in four matches on Smackdown before going to rehab as Maria was also revealed to be pregnant at the same time. We then saw both of them drafted to the Raw brand during the 2017 Superstar Shake-Up, but Mike failed to make a name for himself on Raw.
On the October 10th, 2018 edition of 205 Live, Mike and Maria then made their debut for the Cruiserweight exclusive show as Mike had brutally attacked Lince Dorado. But even though 205 Live is the best destination for Mike at the moment, himself and Maria haven't had the best of luck on the show as of late.
There are also rumours circulating around the wrestling world that Mike and Maria Kanellis had requested to be released from their WWE contracts.
Maria has reportedly denied those statements, but with the poor booking of the duo, it would be no surprise to see them move over to AEW.
