Though the rumors for months have pointed to the start of a new wrestling promotion and even if it became more of not a matter of if but when the promotion would come together. On the first of the day the announcement officially came down from all those involved in the company. Cody, Hangman Page, and the Young Bucks were the first official signings for the company as expected. But now we have a little bit more information that has come out about the company and in the coming weeks we will be slowly breaking down the new details about the company piece by piece to make sure we get to everything.
I also want to make it clear that starting next week I will be doing weekly updates for the promotion on Tuesday's and Saturday's with one day set aside for actual news & the other day for roster announcements. More than likely I will go for news of Tuesday and roster updates on the weekend just to keep things sorted and together. As there will be a lot of news coming out from week to week and this is the best way to keep organized in my opinion.
The one main thing I wanted to focus on in this article is the announcement of the first event for the company. Right now the date for the event is May 25, 2018 in the MSG Grand Garden arena which is also an 18,000 seat arena. It is interesting to note that they have moved up from a 10,000 seat arena to the next stage and it will be something to watch for in the build for the event. Adding new talent like Jericho, Pac, Janela, and MJF as some of the new signings for the roster and it just makes things all more interesting for the new promotion.
I've seen some people put over AEW as a company that bring out the better side of the WWE well all say to that for now is let's allow them to form the foundation for the promotion before letting our hopes get in the way of what is really going on. It will take time and they are off to a great start, but we just need little bit of patience and I am sure we will be rewarded in the future.
