On Jan. 1, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page formally announced the creation of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) on Being The Elite. Since then, those men and a couple of their spouses have officially signed with the new promotion - backed by billionaires Shad & Tony Khan - and rumors have been flying. But we don’t legitimately know much more than we learned in the wee hours of New Year’s Day.
That should change this afternoon, Tues., Jan. 8 at 5PM eastern when AEW holds its first event: a rally outside the home stadium of the Khans’ Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise. Seeing as the rally is named after it, we should definitely learn more about the new company’s first wrestling show, ALL IN: Double or Nothing. We know some signees will be introduced, but will there be surprises (Kenny Omega, Neville), or more names we already pretty much knew (SCU)?
One thing’s for sure. There will be pyro.
The show is also blocks away from where WWE is filming SmackDown at 8PM. So that could be interesting.
