All Elite Wrestling is the talk of the wrestling world. We’re getting closer to its first official show – Double or Nothing on May 25 – and it just confirmed a television deal with Warner Media that sets up the new promotion to be a big player in the industry and a chief rival of the WWE.
But who exactly will fans see at AEW’s upcoming events and on its weekly television show?
Hardcore fans of AEW may know some of the old and new faces of All Elite Wrestling from its Being the Elite series on YouTube, which chronicles the life of many of the core members of “The Elite.”
This series is also where storylines are built, like last year’s All In show in Chicago. Many of the storylines were built on Being the Elite characters as many of the other wrestlers performing at All In were already roster members for promotions like Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, so they could not be a regular part of the webseries.
Since All Elite Wrestling was formally announced on New Year’s Day, the storylines and roster additions have been sporadically appearing on both Being the Elite and The Road to Double or Nothing on Cody’s YouTube channel.
But if you haven’t been able to keep up with both series, here’s all the confirmed roster members for All Elite Wrestling.
AEW MEN’S DIVISION
The AEW Men’s Division is anchored by “The Elite,” which consist of The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson), Cody and Kenny Omega. Being the Elite regulars like Adam “Hangman” Page, and the faction So Cal Uncensored – which consists of Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Skye and Christopher Daniels – also round out the core group of talent.
Former WWE stars like Chris Jericho and PAC – formerly known as Neville – offer familiar faces to draw fans in.
AEW WOMEN’S DIVISION
The Women’s Division of AEW is built by Brandi Rhodes, Chief Brand Officer of All Elite Wrestling. While not as deep as the men’s division it features some of the best up-and-coming talent in the independent scene.
With the rise of women’s wrestling, the AEW roster will certainly add more and more talent.
