Tuesday night was a historic evening for wrestling in Jacksonville, Florida, and it had nothing to do with WWE hosting SmackDown there. Meltzer notes that All Elite Wrestling wanted to sign Niven but she decided not to sign with them. With a star as big as Jericho being a part of the company so early on, things look really good for AEW.

The race to sign up top free agents in pro-wrestling right now has amped up with both WWE and AEW aggressively trying to sign top indie talents.

The PAC announcement came after Hangman Page promised to be the first AEW champion. Beyond Cody, Page, and the Young Bucks, All Elite has signed "The Bad Boy" Joey Janela, Penelope Ford, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky, Christopher Daniels, Dr. Britt Baker DMD, and Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

While the showing of talent was impressive and the hype was definitely real, there were still a lot of deeper questions in the air about the future of AEW that weren't fully answered. He and "The Villain" Marty Scurll are the only two members of The Elite that, as of now, are not officially tied to the new company.

In case you missed it, Double or Nothing will take place on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The arrival of AW comes at a very interesting time for professional wrestling. Those who are most familiar with AEW seem to think it's a legitimate venture that has a shot at making it due to how in tune with wrestling the key players are.
