On the day that the company celebrates its 200th episode of AEW Dynamite, it was announced that Kenny Omega, Nick & Matt Jackson along with Adam HANGMAN Page have all signed long-term extensions to stay with the company for the foreseeable future.
The Elite has captured every major championship within the company, and the four have experienced unprecedented success both individually and as a group in AEW. Omega and Page are both former AEW World Champions and former AEW World Tag Team
Champions with one another. Omega also held the AEW World Trios Championships twice with the Young Bucks, who themselves are former two-time AEW World Tag Team Champions.
Tony Khan CEO, GM, and Head of Creative stated
“The Elite have been so important to the launch of AEW, with the Young Bucks going all in when I first approached them in 2018 about my dream to create an international pro wrestling promotion,” “Shortly after that, their partners and closest friends Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page joined us to formally launch All Elite Wrestling. All four of them have been instrumental to AEW’s success from the very first episode of Wednesday Night Dynamite in 2019 through the present day. Now as we celebrate tonight’s 200th episode of AEW: Dynamite, I’m excited to share that Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks and Hangman Adam Page will all be staying in AEW for years to come! Congratulations to The Elite, and we look forward to celebrating the great news with fans around the world. See you all tonight for Episode 200 of AEW: Dynamite!”
