Being The Elite

Last Modified May 23, 2023 00:01 IST

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has taken the world of professional wrestling by storm since its inception in 2019. The company, which started as an indie wrestling company, has risen to such levels that, after WCW, AEW has been the only legitimate competition to WWE. The work culture and the creative freedom have enticed numerous talents to shift their brand to AEW and the YouTube series “Being The Elite” has played an equally important role in that as well. This series showcases the experience of wrestlers in AEW and is sometimes actively involved in shaping storylines in the company as well.

Impact on Characters and Storytelling

The biggest advantage of Being The Elite is that it helps the wrestlers develop their characters, rivalries, and storylines outside the squared circle. The Young Bucks, Hangman Adam Page, Cody Rhodes, MJF, Kenny Omega were all wrestlers who got the opportunity to build up the tension in their feud through this series so that the audience was more invested in it as well and so that the subsequent match could be a great one. It is scarce in the wrestling world that the wrestlers get this kind of opportunity to work on their characters in such depth, which is a testament to AEW’s creativity and it shows why AEW has reached the levels it has.


Connection with Fans:

Being The Elite usually features behind-the-scenes vlogs or glimpses of what goes on in the lives of the wrestlers outside of AEW which humanizes the wrestlers in a way that allows the fans to connect to them even more. Such glimpses help the fans become more invested in the wrestler and the company. This is why AEW has built such a large, loyal fan base in such a short time.
