I used to watch the Young Bucks in TNA when they were going against the Motor City Machine Guns every week. I thought that they were good, not great, and I was stunned when they wouldn't sign with TNA to become indy guys. I have seen them more recently with New Japan, and for the life of me, I don't get it. They are good, but they are not legendary. Same goes for Kenny Omega. In his case, I think he's far superior to the Bucks, but as far as comparing those who came before him, he's just not there. And maybe it's based on him doing what he's told to do and/or what he thinks the fans want to see. But I watched some AJ Styles matches from when he was IWGP Champion, and I don't think Kenny Omega can even sniff what AJ did then and has done since he got to WWE.

All Elite Wrestling sent us the following. The event will take place very close to where WWE is shooting Smackdown live. Will they go all WWF invading WCW? We shall see.

THE ELITE ANNOUNCES “DOUBLE OR NOTHING” EVENT RALLY IN JACKSONVILLE ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 8 @ 5PM

-- New “All Elite Wrestling” Poised to Change Wrestling Landscape --

JACKSONVILLE, FL, (January 3, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling, the new wrestling promotion headlined by members of The Elite, today announced plans for a special DOUBLE OR NOTHING event rally in Jacksonville, FL. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 5pm ET outside TIAA Bank Field in Parking Lot J (near Gate 1, adjacent to the TV compound).

The rally is on the heels of the unveiling earlier this week of DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the inaugural event under the new All Elite Wrestling (AEW) banner. Keeping in true The Elite fashion, attendees can expect the unexpected as the rally will showcase the true spirit of wrestling entrepreneurialism and feature special guests, inside info and limited edition merchandise.

Fans can also watch the event rally live on the “Being The Elite” YouTube channel, as well as @AEWrestling (Twitter), /TheYoungBucks (Facebook), @TheBrandiRhodes (Instagram), and can interact socially at #AEW.

“The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, are right with me in committing to deliver on our promise to change the wrestling landscape in 2019, and the DOUBLE OR NOTHING event is just the start,” said Cody Rhodes. “The time to change the world is now.”

From:

Brandi Runnels

Chief Brand Officer

AEW

I just love how Within 3 years Brandi went from a ring announcer that couldn’t make TV to the Chief Brand Officer of a company being financed by a billionaire.

Being Married to the right person can go along way.

I see that Jim Ross, Chris Jericho are going to be involved and they are looking to bring someone like Goldberg in early on also.

Everyone lost at Wrestle Kingdom. Jericho dropped the I-C belt to Naito, Cody lost the U.S. title to Juice, Omega dropped the World title to Tanahashi, the Bucks lost in a 3-way for the Tag titles, and the rest of the Bullet Club (Page, Scurll, and Yujro) lost in a gauntlet match for the 6-Man Tag titles. So the stage is now set and we’ll see what happens. The announcers talked about AEW a lot during Cody’s match so it’s not like NJPW is hiding it.

That's because there's a meeting today with ROH/NJPW/AEW about having a working agreement together. Also, I've heard that the WWE has offered Omega "Huge money" to come over stateside. They want to do a documentary about his life outside of North America and his gaming passion and friendship with Xavier Woods. They would have him debut at the Royal Rumble at #30 and fast track him to a main event spot, as soon as WrestleMania.

LOL. This is like Vince telling everyone he was trying to sign in the 80s that they would come in and main event MSG against Hogan and get a run with the title. They would bring Omega in and prove that they own, just like they do with everyone. Also, R-Truth has #30.

Like most I’m interested in seeing how that meeting between the 3 groups go. Hopefully they can find a way to all coexist and not kill off MLW.


As far as Omega going to the E; if he does I hope he negotiates a good deal for himself. Maybe get himself a Lesnar type deal and gets paid to sit for awhile or get creative control. I know it’s a long shot but why not ask for the moon if you have the leverage.

Lets see, R-Truth's spot could change. Not exactly a major player in the grand scope of things.

Then what would be the point of that atrocious mixed tag tournament and that ran for 2 months but that does so well on Facebook so they’ll never end it?  There’s no reason to change that. They could always have him come in at, I don’t know, like any other number.

Oh god I might know.
So recently I read that in countries like India you can have cellphone internet that is only Facebook and maybe like another internet service like WhatsApp. It`s those people that send out weird messages like "Send boops and vagena pics" on Facebook. So guess who would like to watch such WWE programming. And of course, a viewer is a viewer so WWE won`t care, Facebook won`t care and the advertisers won`t care.

They could just do what they did that year with Cena and have him come in at #31. They make the rules, they can enforce them any way they see fit.

Anybody here believe Omega would turn down a seven figure contract to remain with NJPW/AWE/Indies? Here is why I believe he has at least met with WWE: A couple months back he did a shot with Northeast Wrestling in Poughkeepsie NY. Lots of guys do that, but he never worked there before. In the past, when we heard about guys possibly jumping, they all made their way through Poughkeepsie first, which is a little over an hour drive from Stamford. Jericho, Nash, Mysterio, Bennett/Kanellis, and others. I don’t think NEW has anything to do with it, but for many years every single show has had a WWE presence, whether it be King Lawler and Coachman, to more recently Corey Graves and Renee Young. While all of the wrestlers have the ability to get in touch with WWE through their own means, I’ve always felt that these WWE appearances at the local Indy show were sanctioned because they were used as a way to deliver messages to these guys.

SHAD KHAN STATEMENT ON AEW, Tuesday, January 8, 2019

I am the lead investor, a supporter and a backer of All Elite Wrestling, and I anticipate great things today and into the future for AEW and everyone who has worked passionately on this week’s launch.  I know AEW will be welcomed by wrestling fans here in the U.S. and throughout the world who are ready for something new and authentic.  AEW will work hard to deliver on that promise.

As important, I am the father – the proud father – of Tony Khan, who will serve in a leadership role at AEW during the 2019 launch and in the years ahead.  Tony will assemble a great team to take AEW over the top, for the benefit of everyone who loves the wrestling industry, while continuing to serve in his current capacities with the Jaguars and Fulham.

AEW will operate as an organization completely independently from my other interests.  It will not deter attention or divert resources from any of my businesses, teams, projects or investments.  At the same time, AEW will enjoy the same full commitment I given to everything and everyone in my life – my family and friends, my business and, in recent years, to sports, hospitality and now entertainment.

TONY KHAN STATEMENT ON AEW, Tuesday, January 8, 2019


Wrestling fans are a community unlike most others. I’ve been a part of this community since I was 7 years old, and I can tell you that wresting fans see the world every day through a special lens.  We see wrestling in Hollywood films and tv shows, we see elements of wrestling in the presentation of sports and in the marketing of grandiose star athletes, and we certainly see wrestling in politics.

The wrestling community is a constant; its members are diverse, we are physically located on all corners of the planet, yet we are constantly connected.

Recently, a new family has formed, bonded by love and respect for wresting but armed with a vision and resources that have never before been available to the wrestling community.  Our objective is to connect our community closer than ever before through All Elite Wrestling, or AEW.

AEW does not mean any less of a continued commitment to existing obligations and duties that I have, or my family has, to our business and sports interests.  That will never be the case.  What’s important is that every individual decision we make as family, whether it’s ownership or investment in a team or property, is 100 percent beneficial to those specific interests.  I will always welcome that accountability and responsibility, as nothing is more important than serving our supporters and friends.

AEW will launch with a roster of the top wrestlers in the world.  While they’ll clash in what will be some of the most intense and fast-paced contests ever sanctioned in the squared circle, they’ll also share a common goal: to make this the true golden age, to make this the greatest time ever to be a wrestling fan.  Likewise, as a business, by treating our wrestlers with respect and warmth, we also seek to make this the golden age for the performers themselves.

I urge everyone who believes in what we’re doing, or wants to believe in dreams coming true, to support AEW by spreading the word and passing the wrestling bug onto someone else.  My message: Get in on the ground floor with AEW today and help lead our movement to grow the wrestling community and ensure that the voices of the wrestling fans, their creative minds and their remarkable ideas, will always be heard.
