The Elite recently cleared up all speculation and rumor by officially announcing the existence of All Elite Wrestling, as well as their subsequent intentions for the promotion in 2019.
The reveal was done via their popular YouTube show, Being The Elite. Members of the group held up their phone screens to reveal their next event, ‘Double Or Nothing.’ They also revealed the logo for the new promotion.
Since then, Cody has taken to social media to clarify his role within the promotion, expressing the burgeoning promotion’s mission statement in the process.
“I feel so damn lucky. I believe that more than talent…more than chance…work ethic will guide me where I’d like to go.
To be Executive Vice President for our new venture, and to be flanked by Matt and Nick and a few familiar names sharing that position: this is my dream job.
I can’t think of a time when so many of wrestling’s top free agents all opted out of the road usually traveled and instead wanted to start something new. I am excited to see AEW into existence.
What’s old isn’t new – what’s new is new. Perception isn’t reality – reality is reality. Fans first.”
