As previously announced, Cody and the Bucks will not only work for AEW in a wrestling capacity, but the trio will serve as Co-Executive Vice Presidents as well. "But I need time away, and not just from New Japan".

However, Jericho's contract reportedly expired after his match with Naito, and now he's said to be on the brink of turning out for All Elite Wrestling (rumours about a Jericho AEW appearance only intensified after he thanked AEW President/Jacksonville Jaguars owner Tony Khan for tickets to an National Football League game).

After stating a second big show would take place in Jacksonville later in 2019, Rhodes teased that the rally was over; only for WWE icon Chris Jericho to appear. He later stated in a video that he was with AEW for the "long haul" and that he was looking forward to "changing the universe" with the new promotion.


The real major addition would be of course Kenny Omega, but with his New Japan contract expiring on January 31, no decision has been made about his future.

Not only did they make announcements regarding company specifics and how talent will be paid, but they also revealed their next event Double Or Nothing's date and location.
