As reported earlier, The Elite officially announced All Elite Wrestling promotion on episode 132 of Being The Elite. According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Co-owner of Jacksonville Jaguars, Tony Khan, is officially the president of the promotion.
Cody Rhodes took to Twitter to issue a statement on his position in All Elite Wrestling. Cody revealed that he is the Executive Vice President of the promotion and will be sharing that position with The Young Bucks and others.
Also as previously reported, there will be a rally for ”Double or Nothing” in Jacksonville next Tuesday, January 8th at 5 pm ET at the parking lot of West Club at the TIAA Bank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars. On that night, Smackdown will also happen at Jacksonville.
Here is Cody’s full statement below:
I feel so damn lucky. I believe that more than talent… more than chance… work ethic will guide me where I’d like to go.
To be Executive Vice President for our new venture, and to be flanked by Matt and Nick and a few familiar names sharing that position: this is my dream job.
I can’t think of a time when so many of wrestling’s top free agents all opted out of the road usually traveled and instead wanting to start something new. I am excited to see AEW into existence.
What’s old isn’t new – what’s new is new. Perception isn’t reality – reality is reality. Fans first.
Matt Jackson also tweeted, saying:
“Thank you for making the decision to do this a no-brainer. We cannot do it without you. #AllEliteWrestling”
