During last Saturday’s AEW Full Gear PPV, The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) made their highly-anticipated and highly-awaited return to All Elite Wrestling after being suspended for a couple of months due to the post-AEW All Out media scrum brawl. The Elite made their return to battle current AEW World Trios Champions Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fenix) for the AEW World Trios Championships, but would unfortunately come up short and shortly after the match, AEW CEO and President Tony Khan announced that The Elite will be competing in a Best Of 7 Series against PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo and Rey Fenix, with the overall winner being named the AEW World Trios Champions.
The entrance music that The Elite used at this past Saturday’s AEW Full Gear PPV is “Carry on Wayward Son” by Kansas and Dave Meltzer noted on a recent Wrestling Observer Live that this is not a one-time thing and The Elite will be using this song as their entrance theme moving forward, but it won’t be a song that will be used on regular Singles and Tag Team Matches either. Meltzer also said this song is and has been the favorite of The Elite and their father for quite some time and it wasn’t used due to the situation with CM Punk as this was something that has been talked about and decided way before it even happened.
This is what Dave Meltzer said:
“Wayward Son by Kansas that The Elite used [on Saturday] will be the Trios entrance music.” “It won’t be used in regular tag or singles matches. Young Bucks wanted the song for a long time. They and their father were big fans of the song. The thoughts by people that had to do with the situation in the past two months was something they were aware of, but the decision to use the song preceded that. In fact, when they were backyarders doing their backyard wrestling promotion (in the early 2000s), they used Wayward Son as their entrance music.”
