In some big mid-week news, AEW extends 3 key executives.

These key executives? They also happen to be fairly major players in the ring too.

Matt and Nick Jackson, collectively known as The Young Bucks, joined the company in its early days.

Kenny Omega followed soon after, as did Hangman Adam Page (though Page did not get an EVP designation).

As part of their signing on, they (and a few other stars) also were named executive vice presidents.

Hence, key executives.

For quite some time, there’s been plenty of speculation about the contract statuses of The Elite.

Since they all came in at the same time, contracts would tend to toll at the same or similar times, unless some had different terms.

Cody Rhodes signed on in that same timeframe, but his contract expired in 2022 and he was free to join WWE.

As we’ve gotten deeper into 2023, there have been plenty of whispers that the remaining members of The Elite have contracts that are approaching expiration.

And while they are vital to AEW, until there is ink drying on a new contract, there’s always a chance that they become free agents and take their talents elsewhere.

Which is why for AEW fans, this is good news.

It was announced today, and covered widely, that the four members of The Elite have all signed new multi-year deals with AEW.

That ties the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Hangman Page to Tony Khan’s company for likely at least another three years, if not more.

Specific terms, as per usual, were not revealed.

Considering all that has gone on over the last year, it wasn’t the craziest thought to imagine any part of The Elite might have considered leaving the company.

However, Khan recognizes their importance to AEW and renewed his commitment to the group.
