Ever since AEW announced their arrival to the world at the very start of 2019, it's been the question on everyone's lips. "Who will we see?" And in a lot of cases, "Will we see any WWE Superstars in All Elite Wrestling?"

Well, it looks like it. And no less than five of them at the least.

AEW changed the landscape of wrestling immediately, not only by announcing former WWE Superstars as part of their roster from the get-go - but with several WWE Superstars reportedly becoming unhappy with their respective roles within the company, requesting releases, turning down contracts and running down contracts - all before All Elite Wrestling's first show even takes place.

With the success of ALL IN being followed by the formation of All Elite Wrestling, some of WWE's underutilised stars seem to be looking over the fence to see some greener grass on the other side, and it looks like some are willing to jump to find out.

So, what familiar faces from WWE will we be seeing in AEW come May 25th or beyond? Well, here are five names to look out for.

Okay, let's start with the one man who's not yet confirmed to be in AEW - the solitary name on this list that All Elite Wrestling have not confirmed to be part of their promotion.

It would appear that, given the events that have unfolded, AEW will be the most likely destination for Ambrose, now named Jon Moxley, but he slots in at number five just in case it isn't - but let's look at what's happened...

Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose confirmed back in January that he wouldn't be renewing his contract with the company when it expired in April.


Throughout his WWE career, Ambrose was very quiet on the social media front, only having a Twitter account with, "They made me get this" as the bio and no tweets... Until this.

Dean Ambrose switched his Twitter name to Jon Moxley, his old moniker, and released this video clip of himself escaping from what looks like a prison cell - possibly a moniker for him leaving WWE to have more freedom over his character?

At the end of the video, Ambrose walks past graffiti with dice showing a two and a five, possibly signifying the 25th of May, when Double or Nothing takes place.

Could we see Ambrose/Moxley in AEW? I'll leave that one for you to decide, but on the following four pages four names who we will definitely see - and they're all former WWE Superstars that you can keep an eye out forin All Elite Wrestling!
