AEW has gone above and beyond to incorporate music into its wrestling presentation. Mikey Rukus has coordinated several projects that go beyond the normal scope of creating and recording entrance themes. AEW recently released a hip-hop and R&B album to celebrate Black History Month.

Rukus has said that he wants to be innovative with how AEW approaches music. AEW shows are famous for their singalongs and a mix of popular tracks with purpose-built wrestling themes. Mikey now wants to take things to the next level.

AEW has announced that they will be holding a live music show featuring Mikey Rukus, Wrestle and Flow, and Monteasy, all of whom have contributed some of AEW’s most memorable tracks. The event will take place at The Venue at UCF on the night before the Revolution PPV in Orlando, Florida. AEW released a press release announcing the event.

“AEW Music LIVE! will be headlined by AEW’s in-house producer, Mikey Rukus, and features a live band and support from rappers Monteasy, who contributed to AEW TNT Champion Sammy Guevara’s theme song “Take Flight,” and Wrestle and Flow, known for Shawn Spears’ and Serena Deeb’s AEW themes. Both rappers were integral contributors to Who We Are, and the performances during the concert will include both original AEW themes and songs from the upcoming album.


An AEW concert series was inspired by Rukus’ critically acclaimed live performance of The Lucha Bros.’ theme, “Zero Miedo” at the AEW ALL OUT pay-per-view in September. Shortly after, Adam Cole’s “All About Tha (Boom!)” theme reached #1 on the iTunes Metal Chart. Now, the themes that illustrate the personas of AEW’s world class roster can be experienced like never before through this first-of-its-kind concert series.”

The show will start after the AEW Revolution Fanfest on Saturday, March 5. Mikey Rukus is hoping to give fans a show to remember. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
