With the introduction of All Elite Wrestling, the playing field within the wild, wild world of professional wrestling has expanded.
The Khan family and “The Elite” have introduced a product full of gifted wrestlers that has wowed audiences across the nation ever since they first appeared on the scene. Loyal wrestling fans were treated to classic matches at AEW’s grand debut, which included appearances by Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, Cody, Dustin Rhodes, the Young Bucks, and a host of other legendary wrestlers. The entire roster of AEW is made up of quality veterans and up-and-coming stars who are being groomed to lead the organization into an even more promising future.
There are many great things about AEW. And the majority of that fan love is directed at the talented people who work their magic every time AEW puts on a show. The 20 wrestlers listed below are the ones you need to keep an eye on regularly and the ones who never fail to deliver an unforgettable performance when required.
1. Kenny Omega
During his tenure in NJPW, Kenny Omega consistently produced five-star rated matches, which attracted the attention of the entire world. Due to his global superstardom, he attracted a sizable subset of fans and pushed the limits of wrestling. When Omega chose to join AEW over WWE, it wasn’t quite as shocking, and it was enjoyable to watch him add to his impressive body of work. As of right now, Chris Jericho, Joey Janela, Jon Moxley, the Young Bucks, PAC, and other legendary wrestlers have faced off against Omega in some of the best AEW matches ever. He even defeated Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford in a fantastic mixed-tag team match with Riho. Omega is rightfully at the top of the AEW food chain.
2. Adam Page
Even in this day and age of hashtags, live streams, and subtweets, cowboys still kick everyone’s asses. Although Adam Page takes part in the social media chatter as well, he manages his in-ring duties with a Clint Eastwood-like level of skill. Adam enjoys riding horses to the ring, throwing sick lariats like a modern-day Stan Hansen, and downing complimentary cups of alcohol after winning. He changed from being a mild-mannered good guy to a give no Fs outlaw, thank God. Adam has consistently competed in outstanding solo and tag team matches to display just how great he is. Additionally, he performed admirably in the Stadium Stampede at Double or Nothing 2020’s cinematic wrestling match while looking great in a battle royale.
Adam is the kind of guy who, after knocking out a drunk person in a bar, would share a keg of beer with you.

3. CM Punk
It is a blessing to see Chicago’s favorite son return to the squared circle. And it’s equally amazing to see him as a key player on the AEW roster looking so revitalized. When he has the microphone in his hand and in the ring, CM Punk is once again in excellent shape. Punk has transformed into one of AEW’s premier performers after shedding all that ring rust accumulated over the years. He gets along with everyone and anyone, including MJF, Eddie Kingston, Darby Allin, and Powerhouse Hobbs. It’s so satisfying to see Punk dispatch his enemies once more with his reliable Go to Sleep.
4. Bryan Danielson
The “American Dragon” that everyone enjoyed watching during his ROH days kick people in the head is now a part of AEW. Bryan Danielson has rediscovered his indie wrestling mean streak and is now knocking everyone out and tapping them out. Danielson has put on in-ring bangers with the likes of Kenny Omega, Adam Page, Miro, and many others using his extensive repertoire of slick submission moves, stiff strikes, and brutal suplexes. As one of AEW’s top wrestlers to watch, Danielson is in excellent form right now.
7. Jon Moxley
The person formerly known as WWE’s Dean Ambrose gave up that stage name and made his AEW debut under the name that made him so famous during his indie days. Jon Moxley is reenergized and a consistent highlight of AEW’s weekly show and pay-per-view events now that he is back to being a one-man hardcore army. In addition to his charismatic theme song, Moxley has one of the most vicious in-ring personalities in all of wrestling. When more lax rules are in effect, Moxley is known to both work a fantastic in-ring match and step up the action. No matter who he’s rampaging against, whether he’s in NJPW or AEW, Jon Moxley is entertaining to watch.
