The Elite inked new deals with AEW, although there were times when members of the group were leaning different directions. That being said, they all made a pact to go wherever they did together.
Tony Khan recently opened up as much as he could about The Elite’s new contracts during a recent media call to promote All In London. He couldn’t give a ton of details, because he didn’t have the numbers right in front of him.
Tony Khan said that he would have to check the paperwork, because The Elite’s AEW contracts don’t all start and end at the same time. He stated on the call that he wasn’t quite sure about the exact dates of The Elite’s contracts. He does know that he has their services for a long time to come.
They all signed “multi-year” deals and has great respect for them. Tony Khan also said that he feels as though he has bonded with Kenny Omega lately, and they even have plans to film something later.
The Elite have plenty of stories to come in AEW, and fans will certainly see a lot more from them. The interesting thing to note is that Tony Khan did not really confirm exact dates for their deals, which was something they tried to keep under wraps when they first re-signed with the company.
It appears that The Elite inked new four-year deals, as Mark Henry seemingly let that slip. Only time will tell if The Elite’s deals turn out to end at different times when they run up the next time, but they are not going anywhere for a while.
