What Began on this day in 2019?

When World Championship Wrestling closed their doors in March of 2001, World Wrestling Entertainment stood at the top of the wrestling mountain with no viable competition. 

With the exception of brief moments where TNA garnered serious attention, WWE remained on top with no viable competition for over 18 years.

As 2018 came to a close, we began to hear rumblings of a new player in the wrestling marketplace. 

Trademarks were filed and those that follow wrestling closely began wondering about what might come to be in the new year.

Then . . . 2019 rolled in with a press conference from Jacksonville, TN. 

ROH standouts The Young Bucks, Adam Page, SCU, Cody Rhodes, and Brandi Rhodes along with Independent stars like MJF, Britt Baker, and Joey Janela joined with WWE alumni Pac and Chris Jericho to announce the formation of All Elite Wrestling. 


But at that time, we only knew that AEW was an idea. We didn’t know what it would become or if it would even last.

But we would soon learn that AEW would have their first major show in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend – it was Double or Nothing. 

On that night at Double or Nothing, Chris Jericho and Hangman Page both earned their way into the first AEW World Championship match.

The date for that match. . .August 31, 2019 . . . the first iteration of AEW’s All Out PPV.

The question is practically answered for you now, but on this episode of the Daily Wrestling News Show we’re going to answer the question of  what started on this day in 2019.
