All Elite Wrestling will be keeping its signature superstars and the faces that help built the company for many years to come. It was announced the morning of the 200th Episode of AEW Dynamite that the Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt and Nick Jackson aka Young Bucks, and Hangman Adam Page) have signed new multi year contracts.
It was first reported by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. In addition, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks will continue their roles as Executive Vice Presidents.
🚨The Elite are staying in AEW 🚨

In the first year of the company, the Bucks, Omega, and Page put themselves second to make sure AEW was success. Many thought, Omega, Page, and the Young Bucks should have been winning titles right away. But these guys are smart businessmen and let others set the table for what was to come in Year 2 of the company.
Let’s be honest right before the pandemic hit at AEW Revolution in 2020, the Young Bucks, Omega, and Page put on one of the best tag team matches in company history. That match still stands as a Top Five banger in AEW. But after Page and Omega lost the titles, we saw the old Kenny Omega. The Belt Collector. It was one of his best runs despite all the injuries.
AEW was telling a great story between the group after the first Stadium Stampede when the Elite took on the Inner Circle. The Bucks were going heel to join Kenny, but they were not going to stand in the way of Page getting his moment at Full Gear 2021.
Then Omega went away due to his injuries, but returned for the trios title tournament. Once again it was familiar faces squaring off in the final. The Elite were able to score a win over Page and the Dark Order to win the titles for the first time.

Wrestling News: Professional Wrestling is in a Good State
However, as things went on and we saw the rise of the Blackpool Combat Club, the Elite needed their friend back. Pro wrestling has a way to pull at your heart strings and the storyline with the Elite has been something special. Now they are all here to stay.
There was talk of The Elite maybe testing the waters and going to WWE, but they just do not fit that company and would not have been treated like the stars they are. Again if WWE did not find you they will not push you. We have seen it so many times. Now the Elite are staying were they belong.
With Omega, he continues to put on great matches. Most recently his match with Will Ospreay at Forbidden Door will go down as an all time epic. The Young Bucks are one of the heart and soul of the AEW Tag Team Division. They had great matches against the Lucha Bros and FTR. Not mention Hangman Adam Page’s fued with Jon Moxley which sparked the feud between the BCC and the Elite.
All these men were part of the first ALL IN that started AEW back in 2018 and now they will be a part of the first UK PPV when AEW takes over Wembley Stadium with ALL IN at the end of August.
Now all eyes turn to MJF and the bidding WAR of 2024.
