Our Three Biggest Takeaways from the All Elite Wrestling Rally

It’s a great time to be a pro-wrestling fan! We have so much to look forward to this year. One of the most anticipated American pro-wrestling events is the launch of All Elite Wrestling. In both a statement released by the Khan family and at the Double or Nothing rally, held on January 8, we learned more about the wrestling promotion include the AEW roster and changes to the wrestling industry. Here are our biggest takeaways from the Double or Nothing rally:

Changes to the Wrestling Economy

Wrestlers don’t make as much money as other athletes and entertainers. During the Double or Nothing rally, Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes announced that AEW will change the wrestling economy by providing talent with better pay. Rhodes acknowledged that “happy wrestlers means happy fans.”

But that’s not the only financial change AEW has promised. Announced at the rally by Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes, male and female talent will be paid equally. All of these things are game changers. If the pay is right, AEW will be able to snag some of the hottest male and female wrestlers in the world.

Diversity Matters

AEW promises to welcome all “elite” talent and deliver a diverse roster of some of the best wrestlers in the world. A women’s division has also been confirmed. An inclusive roster and strong women’s division are huge selling points for us.
