AEW (All Elite Wrestling) is an American professional wrestling company. Both its pregnancy and its growth are something unique in history.
The genesis of AEW dates back to May 2017, when a fan asked Dave Meltzer via Twitter if it was possible that Ring of Honor could fill an arena with ten thousand people. Meltzer said it was not possible. To that Cody Rhodes replied "Challenge accepted".
By November of that year, Cody, allied to the Young bucks, were already looking for an arena to make an event with independent stars. The function was called All In, and when the tickets went on sale, they sold out in an hour.

All In was held on September 1, 2018 at the Sears Center in Chicago, achieving an entry of 11,263 fans. His figures converted him in the most successful independent event in the history of the United States struggle.
► Surge AEW
Immediately, the idea of Cody and the Young Bucks was to move on. After a while, there were already rumors that they would form a new company which would also be Chris Jericho and Jim Ross. In November brand records leaked.
On January 1, 2019, the group confirmed the birth of All Elite Wrestling, company that would have financial support Shahid and Tony Khan, owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL.
In February it was announced that the company would debut with a PPV called Double or Nothing, which sold out his ticket in 25 minutes. At the same time they announced that they had signed four-year contract with Kenny Omega.
Before celebrating Double or Nothing, the second PPV was announced: Fight for the Fallen. It was also known that by October they would have a weekly television show. In April the rumors arose that pointed to the TNT channel as the headquarters of the program, which was confirmed on May 15.
► First PPVs and AEW Dynamite
On May 25, Double or Nothing was celebrated with great success. During the event, joined the cast Jon Moxley, who was Dean Ambrose in WWE.
August 31, one year after All In, All Out was held. That day, Chris Jericho was crowned as the first AEW Full Weight World Champion after beating Hangman Page.
On October 2, 2019, the weekly AEW program was aired, called AEW Dynamite. To counter it, WWE moved its NXT program to the USA Network channel, thus beginning a war of ratings. The first week was won by AEW.
