It's become commonplace for fans to tweet wrestlers who have expressed interest in leaving their current promotion for greener pastures, and tease them about making the jump to All Elite Wrestling. That was the first thought in everyone's mind when Tye Dillinger departed WWE back in February, and sure enough, he was announced as an entrant in the Casino Battle Royale just this past week.
AEW already boasts a star-studded roster featuring the illustrious likes of Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, Cody, The Young Bucks, and The Lucha Bros, and it will only continue to grow now that they have a television deal in place with TNT for the fall.
While there's a lot of buzz surrounding AEW at the moment, it's imperative that their premiere pay-per-view, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas goes off without a hitch this Saturday night.
Cody and the Bucks have promised plenty of surprises on the show, which was always expected. They'll need another few notable names to appear at the event to ensure AEW hits the ground running.
Whether they've shown up on Being the Elite before, have history with the higher-ups, or would simply be a welcome addition to the AEW roster, these 12 stars are virtually guaranteed to be calling themselves "elite" before long.
