There’s another major player in professional wrestling. 

Enter All Elite Wrestling, the newest wrestling promotion to join the field. This one comes with much higher expectations with billionaire Shad Khan —  the owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. of the English Premier League — as the lead investor and his son Tony serving as president and CEO of the newly formed group.

There had been rumors in late 2018 that The Young Bucks and Cody — following the huge success of the indie event All In that drew more than 11,000 fans — would be part of a new promotion. The three of them left Ring of Honor in December and then departed New Japan Pro Wrestling the following month once their contracts expired with those companies. 

On the January 1, 2019 episode of the “Being the Elite” YouTube series, The Young Bucks, Cody, and Adam “Hangman” Page announced the creation of All Elite Wrestling with all four of them officially signing contracts the following day.

With deep pockets and lofty goals, All Elite Wrestling is ready to shake up professional wrestling and become a viable alternative to the WWE. Here is all the information we know about AEW so far. Keep checking here on Sporting News for updates as more details are made available and for AEW coverage.
