In case you did not know…
As it was reported recently by WrestlingNews.co, trademarks were registered for a new promotion called All Elite Wrestling LLC and for a number of phrases like ALL OUT, AEW Double or Nothing, Double or Nothing, AEW, AEW All Out, and Tuesday Night Dynamite.
The potential WWE promotion was originally reported to be a joint venture between Cody Rhodes, Jim Ross, Young Bucks, Chris Jericho and Tony Khan, who’s the son of Jacksonville Jaguars owner Tony Khan.
Y2J was quick to trash reports but the filings of trademarks demonstrate there’s some truth to the tales of an upstart promotion seeking to compete with WWE.
The listed address for the LLC trademark is TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, which is Jacksonville Jaguars home.
It’s pretty clear that all parties are laying the groundwork for the new company and it seems the talent-hunting process has gotten off to a nice start .
The heart of the matter
The report from WrestleTalk states that two WWE Superstars have been approached by All Elite Wrestling from the main roster.
They have been offered to join the promotion once their contracts expire. Additionally, it was shown that both the stars’provisionally accepted’ to join the company when their deals with WWE come to a conclusion by April, which is presumably.
The identity of the aforementioned superstars has been kept under wraps and it will be interesting to see whether the proffered agreement comes to fruition.
The report mentions that the arrangement between All Elite Wrestling LLC majorly and the two unnamed celebrities is based on the promotion having the ability to land a streaming and TV deal.
The arrangement between both parties means the deal is at a’50-50 stage’ despite the talents agreeing to join the Cody Rhodes-backed advertising.
Before they really quit WWE, the two stars would undoubtedly wish to be financially secure.
