Tony Khan is the founder, President and CEO of AEW . The young bucks, Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega serve as both wrestlers and Executive Vice Presidents. Their roster includes world class talents such as Chris Jericho, Hangman Adam Page, PAC, Jimmy Havoc, Billy Gunn, Pentagón Jr. and many other names.
Michael Quigley, executive vice president, commercial operations, content strategy and monetization, TBS and TNT said:
“All Elite Wrestling is a talent-forward, fan-first league whose inclusive approach to creating high-quality athletic wrestling competitions is already making waves with fans and attracting top-tier wrestlers. It is a high-adrenaline, gripping entertainment and we can’t wait to bring it to fans everywhere with this game-changing new business.”
Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW said:
“Wrestling fans have wanted – and needed – something different, authentic and better for far too long. AEW is answering the call. AEW is about more than wrestling. It’s about a movement fueled by wrestling fans who have been undeserved. Perhaps even disappointed by what the industry has produced in recent years. AEW is rising to the occasion with DOUBLE OR NOTHING and today taking it a step further by partnering with WarnerMedia, which is as committed as we are to making wrestling fans the one and only priority. With WarnerMedia, AEW is poised globally to redefine wrestling as we know it today.”
