All Elite Wrestling burst into the scene and didn’t just offer a refreshing and dynamic take on pro fighting, but also promised to be a brand with its athletes at heart. On May 25th, 2019, audiences and viewers got to witness AEW wrestling PPV (Pay per View), Double or Nothing.

In just a year of getting onto our TV screens, AEW (All Elite Wrestling) is now the go-to entertainment center for many students. The show features top wrestlers such as Chris Jericho, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, and more. Here’s why AEW wrestling is popular today.

Great Marketing

There’s no denying the fact that AEW still has a long way to go if it’s to attain the heights enjoyed by WWE, but judging from its early stages, it’s on the right track. The powers at the helm have this knowledge and have AEW excel in areas where the leading wrestling shows fail. WWE prides itself on its single categories, and the company pays little to no attention to the tag team category. AEW shines in the tag team department, as this show features top wrestlers slugging it out for the championship belt.

The Omega Factor

Wrestling shows are all about delivering viewers the best of entertainment, which is why AEW’s decision to nab arguably the most entertaining wrestler in the world, Johnny Omega, is a crucial element to their popularity.

Omega doesn’t just play a fighter’s role in AEW he also doubles up as an executive. Thanks to years of delivering the most electrifying of performances, Omega knows just what the viewers want.

He won the converted top spot in 2018’s Pro Wrestling Illustrated 500, and broke the scales of renowned wrestling critic, Dave Meltzer’s rating, by delivering what the reviewer described as the best match he has ever seen. Omega’s match came in with a 7-star rating in a system designed to max out at 5 stars. He’s also one half of the current AEW world tag team championship, a title he shares with his partner, Adam Page.

A Bankable Roaster

AEW’s roster features A-list wrestlers who know how to please a crowd. Their locker room is home to big-name fighters such as Chris Jericho, Cody Rhode, and the flamboyant Gold Dust to name a few. Many of the wrestlers on the payroll of AEW once plied their trade under the umbrella of the WWE, before making the switch to the fast-rising organization. Here’s a summary of some of these wrestlers and what they bring to the table.

Chris Jericho

Jericho is as entertaining as ever, the A-list wrestler’s career is that of one littered with major achievements in the wrestling world. During his time at WWE, he was the brand’s World Champion six times, won the intercontinental championship nine times, a record anyone is yet to beat. At AEW, Jericho kept the achievements rolling as he’s the company’s inaugural World Champion, though he lost the title to current holder, Jon Moxley, after being champion for 182 days. Through his illustrious career, he currently has at least 36 championships to his name.

Cody Rhodes

During his 20’s, Cody was a postal boy for the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), he played as a heel being the youngster trying to upstage the big boys, and did an excellent job at it. Now having grown into an all-round athlete he thrills the crowd and audiences each week with his jaw-dropping moves and dedication to the game. Cody, just like Johnny Omega, also doubles as an executive. He’s also the inaugural and current champion of the AEW TNT Championship.

Final Thoughts
