Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks are locked into All Elite Wrestling.
Jericho fanned the flames of a potential wrestling company war on Tuesday in Jacksonville when he said that AEW was about to "change the universe", a direct reference to the WWE calling their fanbase the "WWE Universe". 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. "Chris will be able to do his cruise". We definitely don't want to shut doors - there's no reason too. It's more years than any WWE contract I signed and I know why.
The real major addition would be of course Kenny Omega, but with his New Japan contract expiring on January 31, no decision has been made about his future.
"Some situations, it's case-by-case", Cody said. This is my first time licensing people, contracting people.
Apparently, whatever WWE was offering was not enough to get Jericho to sign. This is in contrast to the other talent that is signing with the promotion, as their talent deals are exclusive to AEW.
