After All Elite Wrestling was announced by Cody, The Young Bucks and Adam ‘Hangman’ Page on ‘Being the Elite’ we knew that they’d be involved both in a backstage role for the company (well, not Page, but the others) but would also be working as active wrestlers.
What we didn’t know, was who else they were going to get to wrestle against. Every wrestling promotion needs a roster and the members of ‘Being the Elite’ certainly weren’t going to be able to go it alone.
Soon, the signings of SCU (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) and Dr. Britt Baker were announced. Then, at the AEW ‘Double or Nothing’ rally several more top independent wrestling names were added to the ever-growing roster.
Let’s take a look at everyone signed to All Elite Wrestling so far.
#1 The Elite (Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Adam ‘Hangman’ Page)
Whilst many would have expected all of ‘The Elite’ to be involved in AEW that hasn’t come to pass yet. Marty Scurll is still contracted to Ring of Honor and Kenny Omega’s future seems uncertain.
However, Cody, The Young Bucks and Adam ‘Hangman’ Page are all signed to All Elite Wrestling and will be active wrestlers for the company.
At the AEW rally, Adam ‘Hangman’ Page indicated that he wanted to be the first ever All Elite Wrestling champion but was interrupted by someone who we’ll get to later on the list.
As for Cody and the Bucks, they share a joint behind-the-scenes role as Executive Vice Presidents of the company.
I, for one, can’t wait to see what ‘The Elite’ get up to in their own promotion, with the creative freedom that they’re afforded with ‘Being the Elite’. I think they’re all going to have great wrestling careers.
