The All Elite Wrestling (AEW) roster is arguably the most exciting in pro wrestling right now. It’s got plenty of the big names that we’ve grown to love – CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Bryan Danielson, The American Dragon, and more – and it also features a lot of homegrown talent that can be headliners for the next 10-20 years.
AEW has a roster that rivals WWE in terms of star power, and it’s a roster that is constantly growing. In fact, a recent interview with AEW President Tony Khan revealed that he has a goal to create as many young, bona fide stars as possible in the promotion.
Another reason AEW is attracting attention from wrestling fans is that Yuke’s will be developing the upcoming AEW Fight Forever console game on next-gen platforms. Unlike its WWE 2K counterpart, the game will be more like a live service title, with new updates adding wrestlers and fresh content.
CM Punk is still on the AEW roster and he’s likely to be featured in the game as well. It’s unclear how long he’ll be with the company, but it’s likely that his contract is up early next year and he will want to find another contract that he can really call home.
The AEW World Heavyweight Championship is up for grabs at All Out this weekend. Jon Moxley has been a huge hit with the fans, and it makes sense for him to take on Hiroshi Tanahashi in the main event.
