This week, Kenny Omega announced his decision to sign a contract with AEW for the next four years. The new company founded by the Khan family had already signed a superstar like Chris Jericho last month. Former WWE superstar Cody Rhodes also commented on Omega's AEW arrival: “To have Kenny here and to be able to do that – he had to wait a couple of months to see his friends go, and to see him show up looking like a million dollars.
You could see him light up, ya know? The lights guide you home and it was special. I get emotional thinking about it for him because I was excited to have The Elite together. But yeah, it was great. We’re gonna figure it out, what it is exactly, but I was really excited for [Kenny].
That was a big piece of this." On January 1, 2019, Cody unveiled a new promotion, All Elite Wrestling (AEW), in which he, along with Matt and Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks, will serve as Executive Vice Presidents and on air talent.
They have announced their first PPV Double Or Nothing. To promote All Elite, Cody, Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Brandi showed up unannounced to wrestler Joey Ryan's Southern California promotion Bar Wrestling on January 16, 2019.
