All Elite Wrestling Roster: Former WWE Superstars And More Major Names Added

According to Dave Melter of Wrestling Observer Radio, the deal was completed very recently as Jericho had been in talks with WWE only a few weeks ago. Meltzer notes that All Elite Wrestling wanted to sign Niven but she decided not to sign with them.

Jericho fanned the flames of a potential wrestling company war on Tuesday in Jacksonville when he said that AEW was about to "change the universe", a direct reference to the WWE calling their fanbase the "WWE Universe". EVP Cody Rhodes and Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes addressed exclusivity regarding its talent and if wrestlers such as Joey Janela and Chris Jericho would still get to do outside events.

The PAC announcement came after Hangman Page promised to be the first AEW champion.

Brandi Rhodes has clarified her comments from the AEW rally.

Both Nakamura and Ziggler could join AEW. While WWE remains the undeniable leader in sports entertainment, independent wrestling is perhaps more popular than it's ever been, with many indie wrestlers stating that it's now possible to make a good living without signing to WWE-something that was unthinkable at one point. Those who are most familiar with AEW seem to think it's a legitimate venture that has a shot at making it due to how in tune with wrestling the key players are.
