It’s now official. On the latest episode of the Elite’s Being The Elite YouTube series, Cody Rhodes, the Young Bucks and Hangman Page officially announced All Elite Wrestling.
The suspenseful episode culminated with the four men standing outside the Tokyo Dome as the countdown clock they’ve been teasing expired. After an initial pause in which it appeared they waited “4 months wait for nothing,” they realized something was coming through on their phones. Cody and The Bucks displayed Double or Nothing, which will be the first live show under the AEW banner. Cody said, “Hangman, show us yours.” Hangman Page’s screen showed something else: the All Elite Wrestling logo.

This is of course one of the biggest news items heading into 2019. We exclusively reported back in October that the Elite had been working alongside the Khan family. Shahid Khan, the patriarch, is one of the wealthiest men on the world (and a colorful personality). He owns the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. of the English Premier League. Shahid’s son, Tony, is a big wrestling fan and has been hands-on with getting this off the ground.
‘Double or Nothing’ is presumably the first event for the new startup. Following in the mega success of the ‘All In’ show which took place earlier in 2018. Click Here for the latest information surrounding AEW: Double or Nothing.
With the financial backing of a multi-millionaire and some strong independent talent 2019 could be the year of AEW.
