AEW News: The Elite confirms their brand new wrestling promotion
What's the story?
After months of teasing and speculation, The Elite members Cody Rhodes, Hangman Page, Matt Jackson, and Nick Jackson have officially confirmed that they are all set to start their own promotion known as All Elite Wrestling.
In case you didn't know...
The Elite initially started out as a trio in 2016 when current IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega took over the Bullet Club leadership from AJ Styles and forming a subgroup with fellow BC stablemates, The Young Bucks.
Following the addition of the likes of Cody Rhodes, Marty Scurll, and Hangman Page to the Bullet Club, The Elite eventually decided to split from The BC in 2018, as the likes of Tama Tonga, Bad Luck Fale, Jay White, and Taiji Ishimori took over the reins in The Bullet Club.
In 2018, The Elite also initiated their first ever wrestling show known as All In, which generated a total of 10,000 people in the Sears Center in Illinois.
