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.

Rhodes and his team played a bold move when deciding to hold their rally on January 8 in Jacksonville though.

There are many that are hopeful that AEW will succeed as they are being backed a billionaire owner in Tony Khan, who is a huge wrestling fan and is "ready to spend all the money he needs" to make the promotion successful.

While AEW's first major event, Double or Nothing, won't happen until May 25, we can't help but get excited about all of the match possibilities, given the talent involved.

And the second reveal would be big, as Page was interrupted on stage by former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville, now going under his pre-WWE stage name "PAC".

According to Dave Melter of Wrestling Observer Radio, the deal was completed very recently as Jericho had been in talks with WWE only a few weeks ago.

Chris Jericho lost his IWGP Intercontinental Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 13 last Friday to Tetsuya Naito. Jericho, it seems, has made a decision to play maverick once more and commit his immediate future to a project the WWE patriarch has nothing to do with.
