The futures of New Japan's IWGP Heavyweight champion Kenny Omega, former WWE star Cody Rhodes and popular tag team The Young Bucks have been a hot topic for hardcore wrestling fans for months now.

Eagle-eyed wrestling fans in November 2018 spotted that trademarks had been filed for 'All Elite Wrestling', which was really convenient considering the likes of Rhodes, The Bucks and Omega had been teasing a big announcement on New Years Day.

And after the new promotion was confirmed on January 1, Rhodes clarified the positions that 'The Elite' were taking.

Rhodes himself would be Executive Vice President along with The Bucks, whilst Jacksonville Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan will act as President of the promotion as he is the main benefactor behind the business.

AEW's Twitter account has since posted a photo of several of the talent signing their contracts, including Adam 'Hangman' Page.

The group have planned an appearance to promote the debut of the brand, but it may really anger the boss of WWE - Vince McMahon.

McMahon of course would probably welcome some healthy competition, and it's possible that some of his disgruntled superstars may be looking to jump ship.

In order to promote their first special show, Double Or Nothing, Rhodes and The Bucks will be holding an event in Jacksonville, the home city of their benefactor Khan's NFL team, which will draw lots of attention.

The location isn't a surprise, but the date of January 8 is very significant as just down the road that evening will be SmackDown Live - and it's literally across the road from where All Elite Wrestling wil be hosting their 'rally'.

If you recall in 2017, The Elite showed up to where WWE were hosting Raw in Ontario, California to host a rally in the arena parking lot.

It will be really interesting to see what kind of traction Rhodes and The Bucks get with their latest actions, but with WWE's general attendances and viewership falling by the month, there may be a lot more interest in All Elite Wrestling than is expected.
