Some of the biggest names in All Elite Wrestling may still be working on contracts that expire on 31 December 2021.

Dave Meltzer writes in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that several wrestlers recruited during AEW's first round of signings inked three-year contracts, though Tony Khan has the option of triggering an additional two years on top. This was the case with The Young Bucks' recent contract extensions.

Amongst the wrestlers who fall into this category are Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, 'Hangman' Adam Page, and Chris Jericho.

While Meltzer expects that every one of those names will be renewed, he is currently unable to confirm further details beyond the fact that several wrestlers in the original group of signings have, indeed, re-upped.

All of the names listed above occupy positions of prominence within the promotion. Omega and Cody are both pushed to main-event level, combining onscreen work with their roles as Executive Vice President positions, while Brandi balances her Chief Brand Officer duties with sporadic televised appearances. Jericho remains among the most visible wrestlers on Dynamite and Rampage, while Page has been World Champion since defeating Omega at Full Gear 2021.
