Wrestling fans use AEW to refer to the All Elite Wrestling league. A group of wrestlers known as The Elite founded this pro wrestling circuit in January 2019. AEW has gone on to become the U.S.'s second-largest pro wrestling league, behind WWE.
In 2018, wrestlers Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks organized a wrestling event called All In. The event proved so popular that Rhodes and The Young Bucks decided to launch their own pro wrestling league, featuring several other popular young wrestlers.
