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.

Of course the location was obvious considering their backers - Shahid and Tony Khan - own the city's National Football League franchise, the Jaguars. However, there were reports that many fans with AEW gear or posters were turned away from SmackDown.

Everyone who watches WWE knows that the company puts together some impressive video packages, and the intro video for WWE shows features some of World Wrestling Entertainment's biggest stars, but it no longer features Chris Jericho.

All Elite Wrestling held their press conference today in Jacksonville and there are a few notable differences with this company already.

'Gully Boy' trailer: Ranveer and Alia steal the show
Ranveer Singh says he was born to do Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy as only he could have done justice to the character of a rapper. It is the coming together of so many things like rap, hip-hop music, which I have loved since I was a kid, Mumbai the city.

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

The real major addition would be of course Kenny Omega, but with his New Japan contract expiring on January 31, no decision has been made about his future.

Dave Meltzer spoke about Jericho's situation on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, where he confirmed that Y2J's contract did indeed expire on Friday, although NJPW want to keep working with him.
