On the latest episode of "Being the Elite", the new company announced a "handshake agreement" to have Pentagon and Fenix work for AEW.  This is obviously huge as these guys are as hot as any non-contracted WWE talent not already involved in The Elite.  It remains to be seen if this eventually will spell the end of their runs in both Impact and MLW, but the language used so far seems to imply that they will be allowed to work everywhere (including AAA, where they will certainly continue to work in their home country).  I don't think anyone really wants to corner them for exclusivity out of fear of losing them.  Both guys worked "All In", but prior to that had no real involvement with anyone from AEW.

Not a big fan of ‘signing’ guys to non-exclusive deals. You can’t aim big if you’re sharing talent with minor promotions. Maybe that’s what they want/need to do in the beginning but AEW really isn’t sounding too official so far imo

These are the first guys that aren’t signed exclusively in America. If you’re talking about international companies too, that would just be suicide. They’d never sign anyone.

AEW has announced the signing of hardcore UK star Jimmy Havoc.  Havoc's has made sporadic U.S. appearances for ROH, MLW, CZW, and years ago TNA.  But mostly he's competed in PROGRESS and is known as a hardcore wrestler who uses staple guns and thumbtacks.  He's been in the ring with all the usual suspects though, including Zack Sabre Jr., Trent Seven, Tyler Bate, Noam Dar, Will Ospreay, etc. 

MLW has announced that Havoc will still make his announced shows with them over the next few months.

Best Friends, Trent Baretta and Chuckie T, are expected to announce their signing with AEW at tonight's MGM Grand Las Vegas event.  The rumor is furthered by the fact that NJPW has removed them from their website today along with finally removing Cody and the Young Bucks.

However the big announcement tonight is expected to be the signing of Kenny Omega, who is still listed on NJPW's website and was given a strong offer by WWE, but everyone has always expected him to go to AEW.

Kenny Omega is the Executive Vice President of AEW. Looks like Omega vs jericho at the PPV

NJPW already did Omega vs. Jericho though. 

Young Bucks vs. Lucha Bros. should be sick, the best two teams in wrestling today and I don't think they've ever faced each other (although Fenix with 2 other partners opposed the Bucks in a 6-man at All In).

Last night on MLW they hyped a “live” announcement from Las Vegas all night from the Lucha Bros. regarding their future. The announcement was that they’re wrestling everywhere and are staying in MLW but will also take on anyond from AEW, WWE, AAA, EMLL or anywhere else. Cute that MLW managed to get some hype out of AEW’s Vegas event.

Cody has announced that he is having knee surgery.  Cody originally injured his knee in the stupidest way possible, feeling it pop while tossing his T-shirt into the crowd before an ROH match in November.  He wanted to continue wrestling through it but had a really bad match at Wrestle Kingdom with Juice Robinson, a match that was critically panned and which Cody admitted was a "stinker".  He said he can't afford to ever have a match that bad again and wants to take care of his knee now.  I guess it's good timing since he can focus on the business end of launching AEW and doesn't have to wrestle for a while.

AEW has apparently lost a bidding war for Kota Ibushi.  Ibushi had taken a hiatus from NJPW and due to his association with Golden Lovers partner Kenny Omega it was assumed he was on his way to AEW.  However he announced yesterday he was staying in NJPW and was entering the New Japan Cup.

Anybody think there's any chance that Batista signs with AEW?
