The duo is also expected to sign with AEW once their dates with NJPW and other companies are wrapped up. Rhodes and the Young Bucks faced 'Best Friends' many times while with ROH.

The rumored signings of Rae, Guevara and the team of 'Best Friends' go along with Cody Rhodes proclamation to 'sign fresh talent rather than rely on older legends', but every company tries to sign young talent.

A ticket announcement party is being held by the Elite next Thursday, February 7, 2019, and the report noted that Brandi Rhodes said she'd 'be bringing a couple new female talents with her'.

What's next?

A lot will become clearer at the next public event All Elite Wrestling is hosting in the form of the ticket announcement party.

They revealed a few signings at the rally in Jacksonville that took place near a SmackDown event. These potential signings, as well as some others, might be announced.
