All Elite Wrestling

American professional wrestling promotion

All Elite Wrestling, LLC, doing business as AEW, is a company that produces professional wrestling shows. It is the second most popular wrestling company in the United States. Its creation was announced by father-and-son businessmen Shahid and Tony Khan, with the elder acting as the promotion's lead investor, and his son being the founder, president and CEO of the company. Professional wrestlers The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) and Kenny Omega, founding members of a wrestling stable known as The Elite, are serving as both in-ring performers and executive vice presidents. Cody Rhodes, another wrestler who joined the stable shortly after it formed, was also an executive vice president before leaving the company in 2022.[1][2]
