Brandi Rhodes is joined in AEW’s corporate structure by her husband Cody, who will serve as Executive Vice President. The same title will also be shared by The Young Bucks, while Jacksonville Jaguars Co-Owner Tony Khan will serve as the President of All Elite Wrestling.
It’s unknown how many pro wrestlers will be signed or how soon the company will get a TV deal. Chris Jericho and Jim Ross were rumored to be part of AEW’s creation and though that story did not prove to be true, it’s possible that one or both of them may get involved in the company at some point. But as of this writing, neither one has officially been announced by All Elite Wrestling.
