More news on the All Elite Wrestling front with Brandi Rhodes announcing on Twitter that she will serve an executive role in the new company as Chief Brand Officer:
I’ve dreamt of a life where I could marry my passions, combining my academic past with my entertainment future.

As far as we know, the only other women to hold a position as high as this in a pro wrestling company are Linda and Stephanie McMahon in WWE. It’s good to see AEW will be a diverse and progressive company behind the scenes.
In other AEW news, the promotion sent out this press release explaining how fans can watch their upcoming rally online:
JACKSONVILLE, FL, (January 3, 2019) – All Elite Wrestling, the new wrestling promotion headlined by members of The Elite, today announced plans for a special DOUBLE OR NOTHING event rally in Jacksonville, FL. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 5pm ET outside TIAA Bank Field in Parking Lot J (near Gate 1, adjacent to the TV compound).
The rally is on the heels of the unveiling earlier this week of DOUBLE OR NOTHING, the inaugural event under the new All Elite Wrestling (AEW) banner. Keeping in true The Elite fashion, attendees can expect the unexpected as the rally will showcase the true spirit of wrestling entrepreneurialism and feature special guests, inside info and limited edition merchandise.
Fans can also watch the event rally live on the “Being The Elite” YouTube channel, as well as @AEWrestling (Twitter), /TheYoungBucks (Facebook), @TheBrandiRhodes (Instagram), and can interact socially at #AEW.
“The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, are right with me in committing to deliver on our promise to change the wrestling landscape in 2019, and the DOUBLE OR NOTHING event is just the start,” said Cody Rhodes. “The time to change the world is now.”
Sir Mitch Says: The promotion is already starting to take some sort of shape. This is really exciting!
