Who will dethrone 1st AEW champ Chris Jericho? All Elite Wrestling betting arrives

Bookies are joining the AEW 'revolution'

Professional wrestling received a major shake-up earlier this year with the launch of All Elite Wrestling, and as the fledgling company prepares to make its weekly television debut in early October the bookmakers have decided it is time to ‘be elite’.


World Wrestling Entertainment, more commonly known as WWE, has had a stranglehold over the business of professional wrestling since early 2001 when Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) folded due to financial difficulties and AOL-Time Warner’s desperation to get rid of World Championship Wrestling resulted in the company selling WCW to WWE supremo Vince McMahon.

Since that date no company has managed to provide competition to the WWE, but that all changed in late 2018 when former WWE star, Cody Rhodes, teamed up with Nick and Matt Jackson, known collectively as The Young Bucks, to run a huge independent show in Chicago called ‘All In’. The event was a critical and commercial success and it earned the interest of the Khan family, known for their ownership of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team and English soccer side Fulham.

Trademark filings surrounding the name All Elite Wrestling soon made their way into the press and in early 2019 the announcement was made – AEW would run its first official show in the second quarter of 2019 with Tony Khan, son of Jaguars and Fulham owner Shahid, heading up the company as president and CEO, with Rhodes and the Jacksons, alongside Kenny Omega, playing the roles of executive vice president while also featuring as in-ring performers. 

AEW quickly swooped to sign up some of the top independent talent in the world of professional wrestling to put together a supremely talented roster, but the blockbuster signings that helped the group make a major splash were the captures of former WWE and WCW star Chris Jericho and one of WWE’s headline performers in recent years, Dean Ambrose, aka. Jon Moxley. Jericho debuted in the closing moments of the press conference to announce AEW’s launch, while Moxley ended months of speculation about him making the jump from WWE when he performed a post-match run-in during the company’s inaugural event, Double Or Nothing, in Las Vegas.

In that time All Elite Wrestling also announced blockbuster television deals with TNT, the former home of WCW, in the United States, as well as a deal with ITV in the United Kingdom, meaning AEW will have the opportunity to reach more viewers than the WWE in the UK!



With the weekly television show not scheduled to begin until October the company has been restricted to running monthly pay-per-view events, but during this time they have taken steps to establish the roster and crown the first ever AEW world heavyweight champion in the legendary Chris Jericho. All of this has forced the bookmakers to sit up and take notice, and Unibet is now offering customers the opportunity to bet on professional wrestling’s ‘newest kid on the block’ – a promotion that will look to challenge WWE for industry supremacy in the coming years.

So what markets are available?

AEW’s next pay-per-view event, ‘Full Gear’, does not take place until November 9, but you can now bet on the main event showdown for the world heavyweight championship, with current holder Chris Jericho the 11/25 favourite as he defends against one of the company’s founders, Cody, who is considered an 8/5 underdog.

The card will also feature the highly-anticipated showdown between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley, which had been scheduled for the ‘All Out’ event in August but was shelved when Moxley was diagnosed with MRSA. Given Omega’s 1-2 record in singles action for AEW and given that Moxley is a big name acquisition from WWE it is no shock to see the former Dean Ambrose being made the 8/13 favourite, with Unibet going 23/20 that Omega evens up his singles win loss record to 2-2 with a victory.

And before that event takes place there is the small matter of the launch of the television product. All Elite Wrestling will want to make a major impact when it debuts on October 2 and one way to do that would be to unveil a blockbuster signing, but at 1/3 Unibet is doubtful that former WWE star CM Punk will make his long-awaited return to the business on the show (it is 2/1 that he does).

The final markets available revolve around the AEW title itself, with Unibet offering odds on when Jericho will be dethroned and who will be the man to do it. ‘The Painmaker’ is 1/2 to drop the belt before or during March 1, 2020 (7/5 he does it after that date) and at 3/4 the bookies believe his biggest rival in recent years, Kenny Omega, will be the man to do it. Omega is a 3/4 favourite ahead of 5/4 Cody, while the bookmakers are 4/1 that AEW does something that WWE has never done – have a British wrestler heading up the company. PAC, who wrestled in WWE as Neville, is up next at 4/1 with Jon Moxley and Adam ‘Hangman’ Page both available at 6/1.
